During the holiday season we are always looking for a unique way to spend a glorious summer’s day without spending a lot of hard earned ‘boodle’, especially in today’s economic climate of rising prices and hard- to-find bargains.
In George there is a wonderful Art Gallery attached to the George Museum and each month it mounts a new exhibition of artworks from regional artists. Most important of all there is no entrance fee. It is beautifully cool, relaxed, quiet and beautifully decorated with all its walls covered with the most stunning art.
Parking at the rear is plentiful, safe and free. What more can a lucky holidaymaker want!!
During December, the members of SCAVA (South Cape Association for Visual Arts) are organising a bumper exhibition. The theme at this time of year is always about the environs, so artists can submit their favourite subjects. There will be many landscapes, still life, portraiture, miniatures, and some expressionism pieces. Thus the whole show is usually very colourful, offering favourite subject matter for all viewers.
If you are an artist, and a member of SCAVA, the intake dates will be 1st, 3rd and 4th December. SCAVA is one of 34 branches of SANAVA (South African National Association for Visual Arts) founded in Cape Town in 1830. The South Cape branch covers an area of 250 Kilometres in any direction from the central point of George.
If you are an art lover you are invited to opening night on Friday 14th December. This is your opportunity to commune with artists, enjoy works of art and perhaps choose one for your home. Time: 18:00 Venue: The Art Gallery of the George Museum. RSVP: Maura 083 485 4177
Normal viewings days are Mondays to Fridays from 0900 to 1630 and Saturdays from 0900 to 11:30. Bring your children or friends. It is a marvellous way to entertain them.
