Solo Studios is a collaboration between artists, art curators and galleries based in the Riebeek Valley, providing an opportunity for art lovers, buyers and collectors to visit artists in their respective studios. Mostly private and reclusive, the artists invite the fraternity into their personal realm for a rare intimate encounter.
From established, internationally acclaimed artists, to the emerging and aspiring talent from disadvantaged communities, Solo Studios is an inclusive initiative, designed to sustainably benefit the Riebeek Valley community as a whole.
Patrons are encouraged to visit the Valley over the entire August 11-13 weekend, when they can directly engage with the participating artists in their personal workspaces; admire the group exhibitions in the Galleries, and experience The People's Gallery, a "pop-up" platform for emerging talent.
A percentage of the Solo Studios Event proceeds will be allocated to an Arts Development Trust to facilitate a sustainable growth programme for The People's Gallery.
"The Fringe" allows visitors to experience the excellent wines, olive products, craft beers, cuisine, freshly roasted coffee and loads of entertainment which the Valley has become famous for.
Solo Studios tickets available from 20 May - watch this space for online link.
