SoJie 24


Evening Portrait of a Young Man
by Jolante Hesse


   Join me at the Juried Invitational Exhibition…

I am very excited to have my art selected, from over 75000 works of art, to exhibit in SoJie 24. SoJie 24 takes its name from the first letters of Solo’s Juried Invitational Exhibition. This month is only the 24th one, ever, and 70 other artists, besides myself, are represented.

Winners of the invitational will be announced on September 26th, when a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place will be awarded in three categories: digital art, photography, and traditional art.

Non members, as well as members, ARE welcome to view all of the work nominated. So I hope that you will click the show banner, above, and follow the link to view my fellow exhibitors. The works are shown “gallery size” and are beautiful, seen together.

If you do not belong to the group, Solo Exhibition, you cannot participate in commenting; and joining to comment is not encouraged. But you CAN lend support by commenting in my journal, here, about the show.

THIS JOURNAL IS ALSO PART OF A WEB RING. You can also follow other artists involved, by clicking on the WEB RING BADGE below. You don’t need to be a member of Solo Exhibition to show your support, this web ring is especially for non members! Thank you!

    Jolante, congratulations on this piece. Not only for its nomination to SoJie 24, for which I am delighted; but also for its recognition as a finalist, in the top show in South Africa. You have captured a precious, contemplative mood. Your striking way with lighting the form of a face, and drapery is impressive and inspiring. All the best to you! And welcome to the web ring!

  • Thanks a lot Frannie. For both. I really appreciate it! The SPI Portrait Award is similar to the BP one.
