(“Full Moon” Needle Felting by Annette McMaster)

Deadline: October 21, 2016

ARTWORKS are rolling in to the Tatham Art Gallery for the seventh edition of The Fabulous Picture Show, the Friends of the Tatham Art Gallery’s (FOTAG) major annual fundraising auction and fun event, happening on November 25.

However, not all artists had their work completed by the first deadline for submissions, and donations will now be accepted until October 21, 2016.

So, artists, get busy, and take your masterpiece along to the Tatham. Reena will be accepting them, either on Tuesday afternoons which is the official time for submissions, or during normal office hours. It’s all in a good cause, allowing FOTAG to raise money for the buying of new work for the gallery’s permanent collection. Last year, over 200 donated artworks were sold, raising over R83,000, and it would be wonderful to top that.

The call is out for artists to donate up to three unframed, original artwork – artists can check details and dimensions on the FOTAG website at

All works in the prescribed size will be framed by FOTAG before the auction.  3D works are welcome, but not bigger than the A4 dimensions.

For more information, visit the FOTAG website at or contact Bryony Clark at or 033 3922825 (mornings only).
