Following the resounding success of the inaugural event in 2016, Solo Studios has become an annual event on the South African arts calendar.
Hosted in and around the towns of Riebeek Kasteel and Riebeek West, Solo Studios is a collaboration between artists, art curators and galleries based in the area, and has been created to provide an opportunity for art collectors to visit artists in their studios to view and purchase their art. Mostly private and reclusive, the artists invite the fraternity into their personal realm for a rare intimate encounter.
A new addition to this year’s offering is the inclusion of resident authors, poets and book illustrators, all represented on one platform in a group exhibition, “The Writers’ Studio”. A highlight of this programme is the opportunity to enjoy breakfast with political commentator Max du Preez and investigative journalist Jacques Pauw.
