Oatley 101 presents 3 exhibitions each year showcasing high quality paintings for sale to the public.
Scheduled for 2023
Art Sale Exhibition – 3rd & 4th June
Members Exhibition – 9th & 10th September
Christmas Exhibition – 9th & 10th December
The standard of the work offered in the sale was exceptional and the “half price” on all the works made the sales just brilliant.
This same high standard carried through to the unframed boxed works which also just “walked out the door”.
Congratulations to everyone involved in presenting this exhibition.
A very special thank you to all the volunteers who worked so hard to make the weekend such a success. Without them we would not have these wonderful exhibitions.
Well done to the artist who supplied the 127 paintings for hanging, and the many, many unframed paintings which were in the boxes.
Congratulations to the people who sold one of the 40 paintings that went to a new home.
It was a great time for the members and the community to come together at the Scout Hall and enjoy each other’s company. The members enjoyed chatting with the people and answering their questions about the paintings. All of this created a happy and lively atmosphere which continued through the whole exhibition and it was a pleasure to see everyone mingling together and enjoying drinks and nibbles at the end of the weekend.
Opening Night on the Friday evening of the 11th March, 2023 was enjoyed by all.
Viewing a 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.
