Meet The World-Famous Pigcasso On This Art Weekend In Franschhoek

Art Franschhoek opens private art collections, plus see the painting pig

The little Western Cape town of Franschhoek has a high concentration of both artists and galleries, and over Art Franschhoek, art enthusiasts can keep going from one exhibition to another one entire weekend long (stopping for wine breaks along the way, of course). A particular treat is that you’ll be able to see some never-seen-before art which will be on loan from private collections for this weekend only.

Art Franschhoek takes place in the town of Friday 25 to Sunday 27 October 2019.

PRIVATE MASTERPIECES GET PUBLIC VIEWING FOR FIRST TIME
Art Franschhoek has curated an exhibition of exquisite works on loan from private owners for the weekend, entitled ‘Masterpieces from Franschhoek Private Collections’. The exhibition will include rarely seen works by the likes of world-renowned artists William Kentridge, Alexis Preller, Dumile Feni, Robert Hodgins, Maud Sumner and others. The works will be on view to the public at Ebony/Curated’s Bordeaux House Gallery.

The entire area’s galleries are participating, so you can see other exhibitions at Grand Provence and La Motte, and La Bri Estate will be hosting its very first art exhibition during the weekend, too, the estate also has a selection of decadent wine pairings including chocolate, biltong and Turkish delight for afterwards. 

GARDENS CAN BE ART, TOO (+ MEET PIGCASSO)
Leeu Estates will also be hosting garden and art tours of the five-star getaway’s landscaped grounds, manicured vineyards and indigenous fynbos, which is interspersed with artworks. Tours vary and include picnics, tastings, afternoon tea and scones, and cost from R170pp to R330pp. 

Then there’s also the chance to meet the pig who’s been featured on SKY, BBC and CNN. She will be showcasing her work at OINK the GALLERY at Farm Sanctuary SA. Pigcasso first became known for her signature abstract expressionist collection in 2017. The exhibition will be touring Europe later this year, so take the chance to see her work right here at home. 

The weekend will offer so much more at Franschhoek’s various galleries and destinations. To see what you can do, including booking information and costs, see the full Art Franschhoek Programme
