Monday 30 September was the start of the prestigious SASA Annual Exhibition, where only works chosen by the judges on selection day are exhibited.
After a hard day’s hanging, we had a very beautiful exhibition to present to our viewers and the high standard of the work was noted at the opening event.
The evening kicked off with an opening address by Marc Alexander, one of our selection day judges, who is both an artist in his own right, as well as a gallery owner. Marc honoured our society and it’s members, both past and present. We are in distinguished company!
He praised the work on show and encouraged our members to keep at it and persevere in their chosen direction, no matter the reaction of others to their work, be it positive or negative. Every artist has his or her own voice, to which we must be true. Then he addressed the buyers……here’s to many sales!
After his speech, Marc handed out all the awards won at the selection weekend and presented the winners of each category with their trophies.
A celebratory evening indeed, made even more enjoyable by the wonderful snacks provided by our catering team and of course the choice of wines at the bar – something to suit every taste.
Thanks to all those whose hard work helped make this evening such a success.
