The annual Exhibition for The Society of Feline Artists is now on at the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery in London and it features the work of Full and Associate members of SOFA.
The London show opened it’s doors today for the private view. It was a beautiful day and the show looked wonderful. Everyone enjoyed the afternoon, the champagne and the chance to see so much lovely work on display.
Kay Young, our chairman, gave the welcoming speech and the show was opened in splendid style by our Patron David Grant.
Kay Young thanked Jillian and Ernest and the staff at Llewellyn Alexander for their hard work on our behalf. They did a wonderful job of hanging the show, it looked splendid. The society gave gifts to Jillian and the staff to show our appreciation.
The gallery prize was won this year by Natalie Mascall for her painting ‘Little Beauty’, congratulations to Natalie.
The painting chosen for the Friends Prize Draw this year was by Marian Forster. The lucky winner, drawn out of a hat by David Grant, is Sheila Dumayne. Congratulations to her.
With the show officially open every one enjoyed chatting and looking at the work.
There are lots more photos of the exhibition in the SOFA 2010 photo album. You can view them either as a slide show or as an photo album. The slide show uses flash and will show you much larger images. Great for seeing paintings on the wall.
As usual we couldn’t photograph all the paintings as there are areas were we couldn’t get to and there are a lot of reflections too, especially those paintings hanging in the windows, but hopefully it will give those members who couldn’t attend an idea of how it all looks.
You can see the photos as a slide show or as a photo album. The slide show is animated and has controls that let you pause and move forward and backwards in the show . The photos are large so you can get a better idea of all the paintings on the wall but it can take a little time to load.
For those who want a faster, less glitzy show, or who loose the will to live waiting for the slide show, the photo album is much smaller and faster.
