The SWA were proud to launch their Young People’s Initiative at the start of their 156th Exhibition.  Here are a selection of paintings that were previewed before about 200 guests  who enjoyed a Champagne Reception with music from Jazz Trio ‘Songbird.’  Rosemary Shrager, famous BBC Chef and Guest of Honour delighted the audience with her tales of early recollections at art college but above all her great love of cooking which she likened to an art formArtis in all that is required in the presentation of dishes to be remembered before being consumed!

The evening was a great success with many sales and some interesting partygoers.
