2012 certainly has started off on a high note with the hanging of the 2012 Merit exhibition on Thursday 26 January and the wonderful Critique session at our Monthly Meeting also on the 26th. The opening of the Merit took place the following evening, the 27th, so it was a busy 2 days.
The exhibition – which contains the work of SASA’s top 44 artists – per the judging for the Annual exhibition late last year – was opened by Derric van Rensburg who delivered a thoughtful, amusing and most entertaining speech. Sales at the Merit have been good – 47 in total – and in next month’s newsletter we’ll be able to provide a full analysis of the exhibition and sales. We’ll also be able to show cumulative statistics for the year up to and including this Merit exhibition. ’It was curated very well, and the standard of the works speaks for themselves’ said Natalie Hirschman.
