Artists open studios to the public for charity

Seven Plettenberg Bay based artists will open their studios to the public for one day in aid of charity on Sunday, April 27.  Visitors have been invited to view the process behind the creation of a diverse array of works in various artistic media. The studios are all located between Harkerville and the Crags. Abstract and figurative painting, ink drawings and paintings, whimsical ceramics and conceptual sculpture are some of the styles one can expect to see.

The Artists: Carol Nathan Levin and Charles Levin, Ruby Ovenstone, Donne Rundle, David Kantey, Robbie Leggat,and Myfanwy Balajadia-Bekker will be available all day to answer any questions regarding their work.

A live demonstration of a bronze pouring will take place at Robbie Leggat’s bronze foundry at 11:00 in Harkerville. This is the only bronze foundry in the area.

The public will have an opportunity to see the messiness of the creative process, to see how the artist comes to their conclusion. “We don’t see the mess in the finished product,” said Nathan Levin.  The artists’ work will be for sale at at a discounted rate as compared to gallery prices on the day. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Kids of Kurland Project (

Tickets and maps can be purchased for R50 from Mungo Design at Old Nicks (off the N2) and The Shop (next to The Table Restaurant Plett’s Main Street). Visitors will be able to drive from studio to studio.
