2013 Merit Exhibition

The new year started off in full force for SASA with an exceptional wealth of talent being exhibited at the 2013 Merit Exhibition.

This exhibition is by invitation to the artists that achieved top marks from the judges at the 2012 Selection Weekend in September which was a prelude to the 110th Annual Exhibition.

To celebrate 110 years of exhibitions, our own patron, Sam Nhlengethwa flew down from Gauteng to open the Annual, and two new Fellows joined the elite SASA ranks.  Congratulations to Wyn Rossouw and Ros Walters.

And we certainly were honoured to have Lionel Davis open this year's Merit Exhibition - two of South Africa's best known artists gracing us with their presence.

We now have an exhibition with a difference to look forward to.  On 3 March, a number of SASA artists will be exhibiting their work at an 'Art in the Park' Festival at Groot Constantia.  This is a first for the society and hopefully not the last!
