On the weekend of the 2nd and 3rd of August, hopeful members flocked to Rustenburg High School with artworks to be considered for selection for the 108th SASA Annual Exhibition.
This was an extremely busy weekend for the organisers and
their cheerful team of helpers. With over 400 artworks to deal
with, the process had to be very well planned and carried out
to avoid problems. Which it was and did!
The judges also had their work cut out
for them, viewing and allocating points
to each piece brought to them from the
veritable sea of paintings in the hall. This
was just the beginning. They then had to
choose the best of the best and award
trophies and commendations.
The trophies went to: Margie Taswell-Yates for best Acrylic; Adele Galgut for best drawing; Laura Wenman for best oil; Pam Quinlan for best watercolour, Charles Van der Merwe for best pastel and Peter Nicolle for best sculpture.
This year’s judges were Riaan Cronje (HOD Visual Arts, Design, Dramatic Arts, Dance Studies at Elkanah House High School); Jenny Parsons (professional Artist); David Oertel (HOD Visual Arts, Springfield Convent)
Well done everyone for a pleasant and smoothly run selection weekend.
And a special thank you to Mary McMillan for a great catering job.
