Mountains are often mentioned in the bible. For me they are significant for the fact that they are ancient, awesome, magnificent and continually remind us of God’s creation. Light and clouds change our view of them, displaying different facets and emphasizing their beauty, yet they remain the same, they are there in the morning when we wake and in the evening when the sun goes down. They are unshakable, like God Himself. Even if I painted them for the rest of my life, I could never capture small measure of their greatness but by them I am continually reminded of His majesty and power and this is what inspires me.

Gallery 91 was honored to have Terry Taljaard as one of the judges for SASA Selection Weekend 2016 along with Derric van Rensburg and Andrew Cooper. The South African Society of Artists (founded 1902) aims to promote and encourage art in SA. The 'Selection Weekend' consisted of over 500 artworks submitted and judged... The standard was very high - a daunting prospect for a judge!
One by one, paintings were presented to us, studied carefully and a scored. Judging was strict and we aimed for consistency - higher scores were definitely well earned!
The “Best Ofs” were:
Congratulations to the artists and big thanks to all those helpers!
