TUT student’s artworks selected for prestigious exhibition

18 August 2020

No fewer than three of the artworks of Eloise Schoeman, a Fine and Applied Arts student at the Tshwane University of Technology, were chosen for the 2020 Joburg Fringe, an independent art fair and organisation, complementing the FNB Joburg Art Fair. 

Eloise Schoeman is one of a few artists who has multiple works selected for this year’s Joburg Fringe exhibition.

An elated Eloise says she applied via WeTransfer and submitted her artist bio, statement and CV, as well as images and information of four of her works, of which three were successful. 

This year’s judging panel consists of Bonolo Kavula, Colleen Alborough, Marilyn Martin, Mudi Yahaya, Gordon Froud, Jill Trappler, Liza Grobler, Rupert Walser, Simonetta Bravi, Usha Seejarim, Zanoxolo Sylvester Mgqeku, Sarie Potter, and Claudia Schneider of the Joburg Fringe.

Eloise’s artworks are entitled Cardiff Train Station, Man on the Train, and Men on the Bus 2019 – all acrylics on canvas. 

“I’m excited to be included in the exhibition and to be part of this incredible collection of artists, especially after an unsuccessful attempt last year. What makes it even more special is that I’m one of a few artists with multiple works in the show,” Eloise adds.

The exhibition, now in its 13th year, will be hosted at The Art Room, Santos Centre c/o 4th Ave & 7th St, Parkhurst, Johannesburg. 

It opens on 1 September.

The Joburg Fringe (https://www.facebook.com/theartroomparkhurst/) is an artist-run initiative with a petit, but potent history that celebrates the inner city.

From 19 June to 1 July, Eloise’s work also formed part of a group show, In Limbo, curated by Elizabeth Tristam and Claire Manicom, and hosted by the Trent Gallery.

The works selected for the exhibition are entitled:
Cardiff Train Station
Man on the Train 
Men on the Bus
