Private Gallery is getting shape

Towards the end of next month, a year after we moved in, we will open our Private Gallery in Napier, South Africa. At this very moment a new insulated ceiling is installed in the new studio of Yvonne and this weekend we hang storage shelves and place furniture and equipment. After that we start transforming the present studio into a ‘State-of-the-Art’ Gallery where I can present some of my Landscape/Street/etc., Haiku and Photo-Graphic pictures. On displays are Yvonne’s Retro/Steampunk and Down to Earth pieces; all own design and handmade.

We focus ourselves primary on those tourists (passing along to or from the Southernmost Tip of the African Continent) who have an eye for originally South African made gifts that are exclusive and suitcase sized landscape photo’s (on high quality paper) next to high end market art collectors for special customized jewellery orders and fine art photography.

Although no decision is made yet what exactly we will exhibit this photo-gallery will provide you with an idea:

Truth Coffee

Truth Coffee Cafe in Buitenkant Street in Cape Town is widely known for its retro (‘steampunk’) interior.  In the back (second picture(, where the coffee beans are burned and grounded for global shipment, the interior has a more industrial retro appearance.
