Franschhoek Wine Valley

Art Franschhoek 21 October to 13 November 2016

As with good food and outstanding wines, so too fine art needs to be experienced to be appreciated. Regarded as South Africa’s premier food and wine destination, Franschhoek has added ‘art destination’ to its repertoire. Home to some of the country’s finest art collections and a growing number of local and international art enthusiasts, Art Franschhoek came into being, and was introduced to the public towards the end of last year.

During the months of October and November visitors to the valley will be treated to a plethora of art as Franschhoek’s many galleries and resident artists showcase their finest works. As part of the Art in Clay section of the festival, be mesmerized by the beautiful ceramics created by renowned ceramicist David Walters and his daughter Sarah. Embark on a journey of art discovery as you admire one of South Africa’s greatest masters, Jacob Hendrik Pierneef, at the La Motte Museum.  The Pierneef Heritage Collection consists of 44 artworks as well as personal memorabilia.  Moór Gallery Franschhoek will play host to an exhibition entitled This Place – This Space. Curated by Candice Cruse and Julia Meintjes the exhibition sets about challenging and enchanting viewers whilst dealing with the artists’ responses to our complex country and society. For something out of the ordinary appreciate art at its most vulnerable with an evening sculpture walk at Grand Provence. Ebony, with its exquisite displays of fine arts, sculptures and ceramics, will host no less than five exhibitions in their gallery, and is guaranteed to be a highlight. Behold the beautiful works of art on display at is art gallery, which include ceramics, sculptures, jewellery and paintings in different mediums.
