What an amazing 128th Annual Exhibition it has been. Over 300 works of art from over 100 artists. Bravo.

The committee would like to start by thanking the City of South Perth, Aidan from Globevista (our major sponsor), and our wonderful sponsors Yu Zhao from ACE, Michael Boercamp from Jacksons, and Duncan Brown from White Frames. Without your generosity, this event would not have been possible.

A special shout out to Rayma Reany and Alan Pickering for putting up all the signage, to Trish and Jim Halloran for helping with the flags and fiddly bits, to Steve Dyer who was willing to help out anywhere anytime, to Wayne Roberts for helping set up the stage, and to John Ned Kelly. A huge thank you to Lynette Bell and her husband for spending three days walking the streets of South Perth dropping flyers into letterboxes.

If I have left anyone out I do apologise.
