Seven major Art Galleries in and around Franschhoek take part in Art in Clay Festival a month long feast of Ceramics. Each art gallery chooses their own stable of ceramic artists to display, so each venue is completely unique and the idea is to meander from gallery to gallery having a different experience at each one.
Galleries taking part this year are La Motte and Grande Provence wine estates, and in the village EBONY, IS Art, Art in the Yard, Kim Donaldson Gallery and David Walters at the Ceramics Gallery in Dirkie Uys Street.
The openings will be held on the 25th October 2014 and the exhibitions end 30th November 2014. Details from David Walters 021 8764304, firstname.lastname@example.org or www.davidwalters.co.za
