“A CELEBRATION OF LIGHT”
Dear Members and Friends of the Watercolour Society of SA,
Our Annual Exhibition will be held on Saturday 9th July and Sunday 10th July 2011 at St Thomas Church Hall off Essenwood Road. (Also accessible from Musgrave Rd)
This venue gives us exposure to people who attend the St Thomas’ Saturday Tea Garden and is easily accessible to those who visit the Essenwood Road Flea Market on Saturday mornings. On Sunday, members of the Church can then view the exhibition after the morning services.
Please bring your paintings at 12.30pm on Friday 8th July to the Church Hall
SELECTION OF PAINTINGS
Each artist who wishes to exhibit can submit up to 4 paintings of which at least one painting must be a watercolour painting. These watercolour paintings will be subject to selection by a panel of judges who are Associates or Fellows of the Watercolour Society of SA. Watercolour paintings that are selected can then be suitably framed. I suggest that you submit at least one small painting because there is a market for small paintings. WSSA reserves the right to limit the number of paintings to be exhibited.
The selection will take place at the Baptist Church, Church Road, Westville (opposite the Super Spar) on Saturday 11th June at 8.30am. Paintings can be collected at 1.00pm.
NB Please bring your hanging fees and paintings in other media to the selection so that we can complete the details of all the paintings that will be submitted before the exhibition.
All paintings must have secure wire/string for hanging.
The hanging fees are:
Members of the Watercolour Society of SA - R20 per painting
Friends of the Watercolour Society - R30 per painting
COMMISSION ON PAINTINGS SOLD
20% commission will be charged on paintings that are sold at the Exhibition
All the artists who are exhibiting paintings will be required to do duty at the Exhibition.
