which was held at the weekend was a huge success with 43 of the 130 paintings that were hung being sold.
The unframed works that the artists offered in their boxes just absolutely “walked out the door” and it was wonderful to see so many people delighted with being able to buy such wonderful artwork at such fabulous prices.
It was also very rewarding to hear the customers comments on the quality of our artists work and the wonderful feeling of friendship that existed at the hall all weekend.
THANK YOU TO ALL THE PEOPLE WHO WORKED SO HARD ALL WEEKEND
AND WELL DONE TO ALL THE ARTISTS WHO ENTERED
AND CONGRATULATIONS TO THOSE WHO SOLD.
The artworks exhibited by our artists over the weekend was stunning.
We started with a wonderful Opening Night on the Friday evening of the 11th March, where everybody enjoyed looking at the fabulous display of paintings whilst chatting with friends, enjoying light refreshments and the delicious wines kindly donated by Robert Oatley wines.
It was great to have James Walters, Principal of PRD Oatley Real Estate, not only present the 2 first prizes of $500 each which they sponsored, but to also carry on and present the Oatley 101 sponsored sections to the very happy artists. It is always fun to have the PRD team with us.
Matt Boland, President of Masos’ Club then presented the $1,000 Masos’ Best in Show Award to a surprised and delighted Cheryl Kirby for her wonderful painting of “Michael”.
….and our very popular and constant supporter, David Coleman Federal Minister for Banks officially opened the exhibition.
The weekend was a wonderful mix of great sales, enjoying the company of our 101 family, and meeting the many members of the public who came to look at the wonderful artwork.
I would like to mention the fantastic work done by all the great volunteers and the committee, who have worked so hard to put the exhibition together, and continued to work over the weekend. It is a lot of work, but with the result of 21 paintings sold for our artists it has been well worth it.
Thank you all.
