There’s a refreshing and salutary train of thought passing through the narrow blue corridor which perfectly houses the exhibition Marvellous World: it’s playfulness. Powered by poetry and a subtle sensualism which snakes its way (literally) around the deep blue stairwell walls, bronze and mixed media works by four artist friends – all men – bring a new beauty to the Prince Albert Gallery.
Prince Albert is a historic village with a strong sense of place, an oasis situated at the bottom of the Swartberg Mountains on a small floodplain in the Great Karoo in South Africa. The vast landscape appeals to our senses directly, and fills us with a sense of wellbeing. However, this dry landscape is vulnerable and increasingly threatened by climate change and the exploitation of its water and other resources. Check back soon to see what is next in stall for our gallery, which is situated in the scenic and historic town of Prince Albert in the Great Karoo. If you have any queries or want to exhibit feel free to contact us.
PArt – Art Festival 2014
The second Prince Albert art festival took place on 18 – 24 September 2014. During this festival our aim was to take more art out of the gallery into public spaces where local people gather. This was done in an effort to welcome visitors and showcase our creativity.
We believe that an art festival generates cultural exchange. Artists and audiences can relate across social barriers.
In 2012, the works (more than 1000) of over 100 artists went on show at 17 venues in Prince Albert. Visitors and our local community supported exhibitions, workshops, talks and films about art.
