Creative collaborations come in many varieties, and in the art world, some the most ground breaking artistic works have resulted when artists with knowledge and experience from a variety of genres and forms, collide and spark new ideas.
This years’ Solo Studios exhibition in the Riebeek Valley, is not only a celebration of artistic practice in the area, but also an exercise in collaboration between artists. With this in mind, exhibiting artists were requested to put their own contemporary spin onto classic paintings and sculptures which stand in art museums around the world.
Most of these artists are relatively private, and once a year, they open their studios to a limited number of visitors, and showcase their work. All the artists that are participating, are based in the Riebeek Valley, and there are really some popular and known names among them: Tamlin Blake, Solly Smook, Gordon Williams, Riaan van Zyl, Greta Mc Mahon, Garth Meyer, Claudia Gurwitz, Jenny Parsons, Emma Willemse and Philip Barlow ... to name only a few!
