FONG confirmed for the FNB Johannesburg Art Fair

Strauss & Company are assisting the Friends of the National Gallery (FONG) with their attendance at this year’s FNB Johannesburg Art Fair.

“With most of our public Museums and Galleries faced with ever restricted budgets we are delighted to be able to help the Friends at this level,” says Stephan Welz, Managing Director at Strauss & Co.

On loan from Strauss & Co to the FONG is Jane Alexander’s Untitled, completed as part of Alexander’s 1988 Masters in Fine Arts degree show (it will be auctioned on 11 November 2013). Untitled is the companion work to her seminal Butcher Boys, widely considered the most popular acquisition in the Iziko National Gallery’s collection in Cape Town.

The FNB Johannesburg Art Fair is scheduled to run from the 27-29 September at the Sandton Convention Centre. For further enquiries please contact 011-728-8246 (Strauss & Co) or 021-481-3951 (FONG).
