The Western Cape Watercolour Group – Annual Merit & Little Gems Exhibition

November 23, 2012

Once again we at the Western Cape Watercolour Group are busy making preparations for an exhibition.  Although over the years we have broadened our scope to include artists working in all media, the Annual Merit Exhibition is our most important watercolour exhibition and has a long history going back to the formation of our art group.

We held the selection back in October when we were pleased to have secured the services of three excellent judges: Jaques Vrey, Avril Gardner and Fawa Konradie.

The overall standard was good and we have some very nice paintings to put on show in the Circle Centre in Somerset West next month.

Following the selection here are our winners:

Annual Merit

First prize “Cream of the Crop”: Diane White

Second prize: Mary Serrurier

Third prize: Cherry Nichols

Most Creative: Marion Langton

Highly commended: Marion Langton

Commended: Marion Langton, Cherry Nichols

Little Gems

First prize: Jeanette Hablutzel

Second prize: Marion Langton

Third prize: Diane White

Highly commended: Jeanette Hablutzel, Diane White


The Opening of the exhibition will be on Monday 10 December at the Circle Centre in Somerset West at 17h00 and we are so delighted to have Leo van Straten from the Imibala Art Centre to give our opening speech.  Once the prizes have been awarded their will be the opportunity to view…and (we hope) buy…the paintings.

Well-chosen original artwork will enhance the décor of any home and makes the perfect gift for someone special.

The exhibition will run until Tuesday 18th December.

    Love the idea of “Pass the Painting”, such a good task to help folks to get to know each other & be involved in a non stressful environment. I think we need to steal your idea for our little Sedgefield Art Society. Well done and thanks Di.( D for DYNAMIC) ! All the best for the coming year. Sheila K

    • Thanks for your comments – and why not give it a go? It was lovely to speak to you just now. All the best to you and the members of the Sedgefield Art Society!
