The Eleanor Palmer Evening and Social

Thursday 26th November at 7.00pm: Eleanor Palmer Competition and Social Evening.
The late Eleanor Palmer was a long-standing member and prolific artist. While President of SASA, she presented a cup to the Society to be awarded annually to a member whose work was voted the best at an annual event at the Athenaeum. This competition is great fun and this wonderful social evening marks the end of the SASA year.
This is the first time we are combining our end of year social event with the Eleanor Palmer competition and the turnout should be great.  
So, all you SASA members out there, bring in your artwork (anything except class work or work overseen by a teacher), and enjoy the evening with us.  
Members and non-members are welcome, but remember, only members can vote on the night.
See you there!
