Tuesday the 3rd of May saw SASA members once again at the opening of a new exhibition at the Sanlam Hall at Kirstenbosch. Thanks to all who helped with the hanging of it, which was done very well and efficiently – the hall looked wonderful. The standard and variety of the work on show is amazing and there’s certain to be something to suit every taste, so we can hope for lots of sales.
The exhibition was opened by Sarah Struys, events manager for Kirstenbosch, who has also previously exhibited her own art in this very hall. Being an artist in her own right, Sarah understands how it feels to “put a little of one’s soul on paper” for other people to judge and comment on and gave a lovely, encouraging opening speech.
For the first time at one of our events, we had nice young barmen and waitresses serving food and drinks, which gave our usual bar and kitchen helpers a little breathing space. It also meant they had a chance to have a look around the exhibition and enjoy the evening, socialising with the patrons. A very good addition, I think!
Once again, a most enjoyable evening was had by all. Welcome and good luck to all our first time contributors, may your sales be plentiful.
