What a wonderful day! On Saturday 20 November Rondebosch Park was once more filled with beautiful art and artists, along with plenty of people browsing and buying, or just passing through with their families and dogs in tow.
There was a wonderfully festive feeling, as people enjoyed the music (and dad jokes!) provided by Brian “Ox on the Box” Oxley and his team, and the food and drinks supplied by various vendors – all adding to the lovely, relaxed atmosphere. Thanks to all the artists who donated prizes for the draw – people were so happy with their winnings – and thanks Brian, for handing them out.
The children were kept thoroughly entertained, making their own works of art with the Peter Clarke Art Centre, who took a stall, so everyone enjoyed themselves.
The wind didn’t bother us much until packing up time, so even the weather couldn’t put a damper on the day. Sales were good for both artists and the stalls in the “food court”, so everyone was happy. We had so much positive feedback from customers and vendors alike, so a successful day all round I think.
Thanks to the council, for all your hard work – you did yourselves proud. And thanks to all the artists who took part in this, our final exhibition for the year. The more artists showing their work, the better – it gives a great variety of artworks for our customers to choose from, as well as filling up the park with happy faces.
In the meantime, we still have the last SASA Members’ meeting, end of year celebration and Eleanor Palmer Competition on Thursday 25 November at the Athenaeum, which will, weather permitting, be held in the garden, as it was last year. See you there!
