The launch at this spectacular ‘Art in the Forest’ venue on 13th August was a grand success. With champagne and wine sponsored by Steenberg and over 100 guest attending the event, the space was bustling with excitement.

 

The Hout Bay Music Project was bound to keep every foot tapping and whilst enjoying delicious food by ‘Fine Events’ catering, the guests could purchase beautiful ceramics by SA fine artists from our new retail boutique- for a good cause!

Anthony and Carole Record, the founders of The Light From Africa Foundation, came all the way from The UK to attend this special day.

The inaugural exhibition entitled ‘Small Spaces’ is on until 7 September.  This group show is curated by Jennifer Fair Cohen with support from What if the World Gallery. The exhibition concept comes from the desire to find contemporary artists’ works that will fit onto small walls within the home.

Small Spaces brings together a cross section of South African fine artists and photographers, featuring etchings by Jane Eppel, Tracy Payne, Sarah Pratt and Judy Woodborne; paintings by Gabby Raaf, Daniel Levi, pencil and ink drawings by Michael Taylor, paper cut-outs by Lyndi Sales, digital prints by Julia Rosa Clark and Cameron Platter and lino prints by Jan-Henri Booyens.

The exquisite ceramic retail boutique is open to the public and offers a wide range of SA  ceramics by leading South African artists.

Furthermore, the studio also launched its brand new coffee bar.Art in the Forest is open to the public, Monday to Saturday 9am-5pm.

Visit, get inspired, shop, enjoy, relax- all for a good cause!
