At the beginning of March 2022 three new sculptures by Anton Smit were erected in Great Brak River as part of the town’s Art Route. Beginning of wisdom (grey head, front) and Astronomer’s head (in the background) were placed in front of Peperboom Restaurant with the third, Colossal youth, in the beautiful gardens of Westbank Manor. West Bank Manor was also the host to an art workshop by painter and art tutor Brindley Pritchard, hopefully the first of many to come. Mae Jacobs-Koert has several of her father’s artworks at home and her collection now forms part of the Art Route. The dream of establishing Great Brak River as an art destination is slowly but surely taking shape!
