Annual Exhibition 2009


Chrystel Read,  Ray Potter and Bill Brown were some of the finalists of our 2009 selection.  All the paintings of the  "Best Of." can be viewed on our web site.




What a wonderful turnout for our Annual Exhibition. This is the society's showcase exhibition of the year. It presents a number of outstanding works by members, selected by a panel of independent judges. Works by many well-known 
and established artists were on show, as well as those of several fresh talents. Amanda Botha, well-known art journalist kindly opened the exhibition and handed out the certificates and trophies to the finalists. Many interested art-  lovers came along to the lovely surrounds of Kirstenbosch Gardens to view the exhibition.  A substantial number of exceptional artworks were sold at very reasonable prices.  A most successful Annual Exhibition.
