The 116th SASA AGM was held on Thursday 28 February, at the home of our society, the Athenaeum in Newlands.
As has become tradition, SASA Fellow, Solly Gutman very kindly agreed to chair the meeting, doing a great job and adding gravitas to the formal part of the evening, as he smoothly worked his way through the set agenda.
Our president, Audrey Innes, gave a slide-show presentation on the past year’s activities of the society and, looking back on it all, it’s quite amazing how much we fitted in!
Mike Forrester delivered the treasurer’s report and the council was elected. There was a call for nominations for prospective council members to be put forward and any points of concern to be raised, but none were, so we must assume our members are content with the status quo.
With the dry half of the meeting out of the way, we could get down to the real reason we came – the annual drawing competition, the theme of which for this year, was “Water”.
In second place was Liz Pearson with “Submerged” and third was Avril Retief’s “The Rescue”. All beautiful work and worthy winners.
A big thanks to “The Deckle Edge” for donating vouchers for the prizes and to “Artland” who gave us a very good deal on their imported sketchbooks.
