SA'S finest ceramics on display in FranschhoekThe Famous Idea Trading Company
The annual Art in Clay series of ceramics exhibitions in Franschhoek runs from 27 October to 16 November 2012.
Kicking off with a weekend of gallery launches, classical music, open gardens at their spring best and a potters’ market, the annual Art in Clay series of ceramics exhibitions in Franschhoek runs from 27 October to 16 November 2012.
Participating galleries include Artefact, The Ceramics Gallery, Ebony, The Gallery at Grande Provence, IS ART and the La Motte Museum. These galleries will all be hosting unique exhibitions and talks, with work on display by famous women potters from our past, Franschhoek artists and some of South Africa’s leading ceramicists.
Art In Clay is the brainchild of one of the doyens of SA porcelain, Franschhoek resident David Walters, who recently won the Merit Award at the Ceramics SA National Exhibition in Pretoria.
Over the opening weekend, 27-28 October, the Cape Craft and Design Institute will partner with the local Lions Club to host the potters’ market in front of the Franschhoek Town Hall, as part of the Lions Open Garden Festival. A fine variety of craft-art, functional ceramics and porcelain by Western Cape potters will be on sale to the public.
This weekend also hosts the Franschhoek Classic Music Festival in various venues around the town. The line-up includes lunch and dinner concerts featuring Daniele Pascal, Albie van Schalkwyk, Christopher Duigan, David Saleras, Maxine Matthews, Beverley Chiat, Federico Freschi, Zorada Temming, the Simunye Choir, Stanislav Angelov, Willie van Zyl, Guy Deacon and Charles Lazar.
