“Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.”
~ Henry David Thoreau
The exhibition “Lush” will open on Sunday, 11 September, with the imminent change of seasons and the start of Spring at Cavalli Estate. A celebration of flora and fauna of the Cape Floral Kingdom.
What would the world be, once bereft
Of wet and wildness? Let them be left,
O let them be left, wildness and wet,
Long live the weeds and the wildness yet.
~ Gerard Manley Hopkins
The participating artists are encouraged to investigate elements that have nature and the change of season at heart through the artists personal perception and application of concept. The selection will include figurative, abstract, landscape and conceptual work.
The exhibition will open on Sunday, 11 September and run until Sunday, 04 December 2022. Please contact Amy Lyn Eveleigh, for any further information regarding the exhibition, on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The gallery at Cavalli (Winner of the regional 2015 Best of Wine Tourism Award for Art and Culture) aims to encourage the local arts through its platforms of a public retail art gallery and public sculpture spaces. Contemporary exhibitions are presented at regular intervals in the 600sq/m main gallery space on the below ground level. Stunning in its unique usage of lighting simulating a skylit ceiling, the space is one of the Winelands best kept secrets. A must visit for any art enthusiast.
The gallery is open 5 days a week, Wednesday to Sunday 10am to 6pm.
