Lovell Tranyr Art Trophy

Tranyr, global specialist in art Logistics, has joined forces with Lovell Gallery to take their annual Artist Competition to an exciting new level. “We believe in Africa, it has been our focus for the past 5 years and very much our future. We are delighted to be partnering Lovell Gallery to give artists in Africa a career boost in this way” says Tranyr owner Franck Rynart.

“We are different from other competitions because our focus is on the artist more than just the artworks. Our aim is to form long term relationships with promising artists to help with developing their ‘collectability’, it is a layered process,” says gallery owner Tamzin Lovell Miller. “There is a lot of interest in contemporary African art, and it is important that we have flourishing platforms on the African continent that offer talented emerging artists support and recognition. With this competition’s proven track record moving into its fourth year, and together with Tranyr, we can now expand the competition to the rest of the continent, not just South Africa. This new partnership as well as re-branding of the competition signals this exciting advance.”

Working with a high-powered international jury of art experts, Lovell Gallery seeks to identify artists with latent potential. The support the Lovell Tranyr Art Trophy offers, is designed to make a meaningful contribution to an emerging artist’s career on many levels, including high quality exposure in solo and group shows as well as professional career development.

Artists stand to benefit from:
A finalist group exhibition at Lovell Gallery in Cape Town
A solo exhibition at Lovell Gallery alongside the following year’s group show
Career development by Lovell Gallery for the year leading up to the winner’s solo show
Special exposure in a group show in London during Frieze art week 2014
Exposure in local and international media
Tranyr sponsorship means the artist’s shipping fees are fully covered. The artworks will be collected from the artists’ studios, crated, freighted and delivered to the various exhibition venues globally.

Vivien Kohler, solo winner of the 2013 competition says; “Winning this competition is a wonderful validation. It is also a fast forward button on your art career enabling you to reach your artistic hopes and dreams with expert support from Lovell Gallery and its staff. It is definitely advantageous being associated with this driven, dynamic and forward thinking gallery, and the competition is a great way to get your career going in the right direction.” Vivien’s solo show is coming up in September 2014, and a selection of Vivien’s works will be taken to London for exhibition in October. Two of these have already been aquired by a London based collector.

The 2014 Lovell Tranyr Art Trophy is now open and entries must be in by 30th June 2014. Winners will be announced in the press and on the gallery website by 8th July. The finalists’ exhibition will run for the month of September 2014.

Applications in any visual arts medium, 2 or 3 dimensional, are welcome, provided the artist presents a cohesive body of at least 5 original artworks of the same style or concept. Entry is by e-mail only.
