105th Annual Exhibition

If August was hectic, September certainly was filled with constant activity.

And the culmination of our September 2011 was the Annual Exhibition which was opened by our Patron and acclaimed artist, Conrad Theys.  The highlight of the evening was the induction of three new Fellows to the Society - Penny Steynor, Laura Wenman and Solly Gutman.

To achieve this honour, artists need to achieve a total of 90 out of 120 points over three out of four Annual Exhibitions.  Not an easy task, so as you can imagine, the work of our three new Fellows is exceptional.  Well done!

This was our 105th Annual Exhibition and was superb.  Well done to all the artists who took part.  To those who didn't get their work in, as Conrad said, you weren't rejected, just not accepted by the judges of this year's selection day.  So keep going.
