“New Signatures” in Somerset West

May 22, 2012

Last Saturday the Western Cape Watercolour Group held it’s new in-house competition: “New Signatures”.  Previous prize winners from any of our Across the Palette, Little Gems and Annual Merit exhibition selections over the past five years were excluded from the competition to encourage other people to put in and have a go, without being up against the ‘usual suspects’.

By lucky chance, the local paper, the District Mail, made a mistake in printing the entry we submitted for the ‘District Diary’ listings. Instead of just inviting members, we ended up with an invitation which included visitors.  But this was just fine as it turned out. As a result, we have now found a delightful new member, who is just 16 years old and already a talented artist.  Her beautiful watercolour stood out from the rest of the paintings on show and took first prize.

See what you think. Here is Kalnisher Govender with her prize winning painting.  Definitely an artist to nurture…and to watch out for in the future!
