Sue Kemp Demo

Manor Gallery is abuzz with the setup and organising of BLU (Black Like Us) exhibition which will be wonderful this year. We have some wonderful disadvantaged artists who'll be representing and displaying their work. But before this totally engulfs us could we remind you of our members demo on the  6th August.

Sue Kemp Demonstration – 6th Aug – Manor gallery.

‘Painting oils using a palette knife’

Sue (FWSSA) has been a member of the Watercolour Society of South Africa for many years and was elected chairperson in 2000/1. In 2001 she was made a Fellow of the Society, a rare honour of which she is very proud. Sue has now been painting and teaching for over 25 years and has won awards in all types of media. She takes great pride in every painting and each one is totally unique, capturing the essence of a particular subject. Over the years she has developed her own style in oils and mainly uses a painting knife on stretched canvas.
We have invited Sue Kemp to do a demonstration for our members at Manor Gallery on the 6th August. Sue will demonstrate how to paint in oils using a palette knife in a free, loose style.
Sue will also share with us the use of ‘colours’ and ‘the mixing of colours in oil’. Sue will finally end the session with a demonstration of white roses. 
"Sue is a master when it comes to teaching art. Her knowledge, insight and enthusiasm makes her students grow and excel in their work...” Ingrid Kolzing (awssa)

Entrance is free to members, R50 to non-members so please join us for a wonderful demo.
09h30 till +- 12h30

Watch this Space!!!

The watercolour society is a hive of excitement at the moment. We are working on a new 'all media' project which will run parallel with the WSSA. As it's still in the initial planning stages with loads of work still to do regarding implementation of systems etc. but we thought we'd just mention that...


is to be launched next year. With this in mind, we plan to have the initial opening towards the end of this year and would like you to be a part of it.

Please go along to the WSSA website newsletter where we have more information on this exciting new project.

Or else... watch this space!
