A selection of Plett artists will open their private studios for a day, and visitors will be invited to enjoy a variety of specialized art media. The exhibition will take place across Plett and the Crags as visitors travel between the permanent studios of each artist. Expect to see abstract and figurative painting, ink drawings and paintings, whimsical ceramics and conceptual sculpture. South Africa’s well known sculptor, Robbie Legget, will give a live demonstration of a bronze pouring at his bronze foundry at 11am in Harkerville. This is a unique opportunity as there are few bronze foundries in the country.
In addition, Plett’s well-known artist and teacher, Muffin Balajadia Bekker, will be hosting local landscape paintings by her school studio artists. The selection of artists has been chosen to display a diversity of artistic media. The artists will be available to answer any questions regarding their work. The work will be on sale at a discounted rate as compared to gallery prices.
A portion of the proceeds of the art sales, as well as all the proceeds of the ticket sales, will benefit the Kids of Kurland Project.
This will help to pay for additional teachers, a social worker and a special needs teacher at the Crags Primary School.
Tickets and maps are available for R50 from Mungo Design at Old Nicks (off the N2) and The Shop (next to The Table Restaurant – Plett Main Street). For further information, contact Ann Fermor on 0824528764.
