Art in the Park!

SASA’s final fixture for 2019 was the ever-popular, pre-Christmas Art in the Park, held on the 30th of November in Rondebosch Park.

It was a perfect day for it, sunny and warm, with the gentlest of breezes, to avert over-heating. A host of happy artists set up their stalls and got ready to welcome their customers.

There was a steady stream of people through the park all day, drinking in the plethora of paintings presented for their enjoyment. The array of varying styles, subject matter and media ensured that there was something special to suit everyone’s taste and the varying prices suited differing depths of pocket as well.

Between the shady avenues is a great place for meeting new friends and catching up with some old ones, the leafy shadows giving a very peaceful ambience to the scene.

Art in the Park is always the most vibrant event on the SASA calendar and enjoyed by all who take part. A lot of socialising happens throughout the day, the time passes quickly and our artists go home, tired perhaps, but content.

Enjoy your break everyone, have a good holiday and happy whatever you celebrate at this time of year. See you in 2020!!

Art In The Park

Our second art in the park and final SASA exhibition for the year took place on 24 November at our usual venue, Rondebosch Park.

 

 

 

 

 

Here, on the corner of Campground and Sandown Roads, we have found the perfect home for this event – it is convenient for locals to stroll up, with their families in tow. It’s also very visible from the road, which attracts passing trade, swelling the number of our faithful followers, who come not only for the wonderful atmosphere, but in hope of a beautiful bargain or two as well.

 

 

 

 

 

We had a steady stream of customers throughout the day and good sales figures by the end of it – people making a day of it, lunching under the trees, ensuring our food vendors also had a good day and browsing around the stalls.

 

 

 

 

 

The beautiful space means that dogs can be included in the family outing – even more incentive to come and have a look!

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks to our team of organisers and all their hard work, that’s another satisfying and successful art in the park under our belts. See you next year!

Art in the Park 17 March 2018

 

 

 

 

Saturday 17 March was a perfect day for “Art in the Park” and Rondebosch Park was full of happy people – artists and their entourages, families of browsers and buyers – all enjoying the wonderful weather and colourful stalls.

Many new faces manned the art stalls – artists trying out Art in the Park for the first time – as well as all the familiar ones and our faithful food vendors did their usual roaring trade, with their various offerings catering to every palate.

 

 

 

 

There was something to keep everyone happy and entertained. While parents shopped for paintings, children danced to the music of our resident busker.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We had a surprisingly good turn-out, considering all the other events happening in and around Cape Town that day, with lots of sales and contacts made for future sales, so everyone went home satisfied.

Thanks to Adrian Larkin and his team, for a job well done.

Art In The Park

Saturday 25 November was a beautiful day for Art in the Park and everyone was there bright and early to get their stalls up and ready for business.

We had over 100 artists taking part this time, both SASA members and those from other art societies around Cape Town, providing an abundance of art for people to look at and to choose from. We also had some art shops participating, encouraging the artists to do some shopping of their own.

 

 

 

 

The atmosphere was wonderfully relaxed and the food stalls were busy, as friends and families made a day of it under the trees, picnicking on the grass, or at the tables, between browsing the stalls.

 

 

 

 

 

There was something for everyone. When shopping got too much, there was coffee and smoothies to be drunk and music to be listened to – or for some of our younger, less inhibited customers, danced to – there were trees to be climbed and new friends to be made.

Thanks to Adrian Larkin for all the planning and organising of another successful art affair!
