Art Karoo is one of my favourite art galleries in the area (Karoo and Garden Route). I love the bubbling water feature alongside the steps leading to the front door, and the peaceful quiet once inside. There is a diverse selection of very talented artists represented here, not least of Stephen le Roux Parsons (my new favourite, and I found... More

What a pleasant surprise to see the revamped Gallery, a job well done. ArtKaroo has always been a home for artists, and especially for local artists from the Klein Karoo. I have seen some of the most beautiful, and provocative works of art there. Also, some of the best parties are to be had there, with the opening of exhibitions,... More

The Karoo is a special place. There are so many species of fauna and flora that are found almost nowhere else. The mountains have a brooding quality that seems to change the quality of the air here and give the residents a fantastic sense of pride in where they reside. It therefore makes total sense that the artwork found in... More
