Snap impression of the Greyton Art Walk

What a well organised event. 70 artists around the village and we (me and my wife Yvonne) were in the center of it all; in the Art Hall.

THE Interview

Interview in GIGARTE (by previous Prado Madrid photography curator Georgeta Negraru)


It’s a rare occasion that I exhibits in galleries and art events BUT the Tulbagh Arts Festival and the Greyton Art Walk two of those exceptions. You will find me in the Town Hall 27-29 September in Tulbagh and in the weekend of 15 November in the DR-Church Hall in Greyton. Both towns are within an easy 2 hours drive from Cape Town.

Or you can visit the studios/gallery in Napier

On show this weekend

Photo-graphics and close-up wildlife photographs of Herman van Bon exhibition in Greyton

Some of my photo-graphics on show this weekend at the Greyton Art Walk next to some close-up wildlife pictures.

The DR-Church Hall in Greyton is, for the occasion, baptised into the Greyton Art Centre and that’s where you can find me.
OPEN: Friday from 1 to 5PM; Saturday from 10AM to 5PM and Sunday from 10AM to 1PM

You are welcome!

That was Greyton. Good morning

That was Greyton. Good Morning. With thanks to many such as John Williams and Calli Williams for their hospitality. The organisation of Greyton Art Walk for hosting me and Yvonne de Wit; Philip John and Brenda Parker from BBos for excellent company and Via’s for catering. Special thanks to visitors of our stalls for genuine interest and of course all those who acquired our works (from Greyton to New York and London in the UK). BTW I experienced since a long time the loopholes in negotiating with a London based art collector and his Polish wife 😉 That was really fun!

What a wonderful event.

This weekend me and Yvonne participated in the Greyton Art Walk. And we did well together with artists Philip John and Brenda Parker from Baardskeerdersbos. This year’s edition of the Greyton Art Walk had record sales. Known South African painter Gillian Hahn insisted on a picture of her with one of my canvas prints (120x80cm)

Later today more.

New book

Today my second book (limited edition of 50 + 1 for myself) is published. The first one (‘Landscapes in and around Napier’) was virtually sold out in the pre-order phase. This second one (‘landscapes in the Overberg’) is also running fast before published. Only 6 or 7 left but these I hope to sell during the ‘Greyton Art Walk’ this weekend.

Here a few of the pictures.

 

Earth Wind & Fire

I’m always experimenting with new photo-processing techniques from Black & White reduction to in-drawings/paintings to the application of (own) textures and whatever. In our Private Gallery Napier I show visitors individual examples of each technique.

In my imaginaries I combine the different techniques. The triptych ‘Earth Wind & Fire’ is a good example of it. Coming weekend, 16-18 November, this work (next to many landscapes) will be on display during the Greyton Art Walk in Greyton, South Africa; a 90 minutes rural drive from Cape Town.
