On Thursday 25 September the judges from
the selection weekend – Riaan Cronje, Jenny
Parsons and David Oertel – joined us at our
members’ meeting to critique works which
had been presented for selection, but not
necessarily been chosen for the annual
They explained their personal criteria for the
allocation of points and what they looked for
in an artwork. We were shown what makes an
artwork work well and what doesn’t.
They all did a fine job of offering
constructive criticism. Not only showing
us the faults in a painting, but giving us a
way of correcting them too.
Many queries were very satisfactorily
answered and solutions given.
It was a most useful and informative evening
for all who attended. Thanks, judges.
