Events & Activities 2019

Works on Paper

This special project is the participating artists' contribution to funding the 2019 event. The theme was open-ended and left to the initiative of individual artists. The works are for sale and represents a unique opportunity to acquire a rare original work by our Solo Studios artists.

Art Walks & Talks

We are thrilled to have some prominent figures in the South African art world joining us this year for Solo Studios 2019. Visitors can look look forward to a panel discussion, art talks and guided walks to artists' studios.

Anton Momberg Sculpture Exhibition

Riebeek West resident, Anton Momberg, has emerged as arguably South Africa’s finest realist in sculpture, focusing mainly on the female nude. He will exhibit historical and current sculptures alongside the exhibition of paintings by Anthony Harris.

Talks by Jacques Pauw

Jacques Pauw, author of the runaway bestseller The President’s Keepers, gives the inside story of ‘the Republic of Gupta’ and the prospects for South Africa’s recovery.

The Art of Wine

Come listen to Chris and Andrea Mullineux discuss the materials they work with and the boundaries they aim to push, and, through six different wines, taste the outcome of their creative process.

Ad Goedhart Portrait Photographer

Master portrait photographer Ad Goedhart will once again have a state-of-the-art studio set up where visitors can have their portraits taken.

Donker Jonker

Donker Jonker is the poet persona of a writer who’s been living in the Riebeek Valley for a decade. His stark and sometimes unsettling poetry finds further dimension in multimedia wall and installation works, as well as performance.

Solo Kitchens

A new addition to the 2019 event, and in line with the "Intimate Encounters" experience which has characterized Solo Studios since inception, Solo Kitchens invites the visitor into the personal realm of some of Riebeek Valley’s finest hosts.
