A collaboration of visual arts exhibitions by local artists.

ART IN PAARL will be taking place starting Monday, 29 July to Saturday, 3 August.

During this week more than 30 local artists will be exhibiting at 18 locations located mainly along Paarl’s Main Road and visitors will be able to view paintings, sculptures, ceramics, illustrations and jewellery.

Artists exhibiting at the event at 161 Main road in Paarl include Kock Odendaal, Madeleine Eve, Riana de Klerk, Jenny Kentgens, Randall Philander, Dion Futerman and Celia Janse van Rensburg

ART IN PAARL’s focus is to introduce the newly established Paarl Art Society to the community and put the spotlight on the region’s abundant, rich and diverse artistic talent and skills.

The newly established Paarl Art Society was started in 2018 and already has over 100 members.

It was founded with an ethos of inclusivity in which all genders, ethnicities, religions and ages are encouraged to join and participate and where all forms of art will be encouraged and celebrated. It aims to be a vehicle for imaginative, artistic expression in our town and surrounds.

The society is open to all artists, creatives and art lovers and will meet on a monthly basis for discussions, demonstrations, excursions and meetings and are invited to take part in joint creative endeavours.
