The South Coast Pastel Society 2022 Exhibition and Competition is the society’s premier event for the year with artists entering works in four categories: Landscape; Seascape; Flora/Fauna and Still life/Interior. As a judged competition, the exhibition always attracts paintings of the highest quality in a variety of styles. Visitors to previous exhibitions have commented on the breadth of subject matter and the depth and vibrancy achieved by each artist in their paintings. Pastels are truly a versatile medium!

Each year, the paintings are judged by a well known and respected artist and this year is no exception with award winning south coast artist Gary Laird judging the paintings and providing insightful critiques on the winning entries. Winners and runners up in each category will be awarded cash prizes generously provided by the society’s loyal sponsors who have continued to support the society through good times and bad. The Society is very appreciative of this ongoing support. All paintings will also be considered for the highly prized “Best in Show” award whilst visitors to the exhibition will also have the opportunity to nominate their favourite painting for the “People’s Choice Award”.

The exhibition will be open from 1:30pm to 4pm on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 September and from 10am to 4pm each day from Monday 26 September to Monday 3 October at the Sunshine Bay Public School, Beach Road, Sunshine Bay. Entry is by gold coin donation with the proceeds going to the School.

NOTE: Comments were TRIALED - in the end it failed as humans will be humans and it turned into a pile of merde; only contributed to by just a handful who did little to add to the conversation of the issue at hand. Anyone who would like to contribute an opinion are encouraged to send in a Letter to the Editor where it might be considered for publication
