The South African Society of Artists 2014 Merit Exhibition – Opening tonight!

January 24, 2014

I’ve been busy getting ready for the opening of the South African Society of Artists (SASA) 2014 Merit Exhibition tonight at the lovely Kirstenbosch gardens in Cape Town. Yesterday was hectic as we had to take along our paintings for the hanging which was a big job. I was assisting and it was a real mission to get all the paintings nicely arranged.

Tonight’s exhibition will be opened by top-selling contemporary artist Gavin Collins at 6.00pm tonight. We were delighted to have Gavin open our local Western Cape Artists’ Society Annual Merit exhibition here in Somerset West last December, and it will be a pleasure to see him and his lovely wife, Amanda. Gavin has just completed a stunning portrait of her which is posted on his facebook page.

I have to take another two paintings along with me this evening as I heard this morning that I have already sold to overseas visitors!  Here’s a picture of one of them: “The Colours of Spring” – a vibrant acrylic which won a prize in the WCAS Annual Merit Exhibition.

The exhibition is on for a week and a half from Thursday 23 January to Wednesday 5 February, from 10.00 am to 5.30 pm daily in the Sanlam Hall at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens.
