“Montagu Youth Arts Fest art exhibition”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

The Montagu Museum reopened the Art Gallery in the KWV Building in Kohler Street's doors on Heritage Day -24th September 2103. There are also some fine remaining examples of historical industrial architecture in a rural area on permanent exhibit in the courtyard at back.

The KWV buildings, where the museum and gallery re housed, is c/o Long and Kohler Streets, and are fine remaining examples of historical industrial architecture in a rural area and were acquired by the Museum in the 1990’s.
The museum has been restoring the enormous façade in stages over the past years in an endeavour to restore it to its former glory.

I was there to see the exhibitions of children's art that forms part of the Montagu Youth Arts Festival that happens annually around this time of year. Children from schools in and around Montagu and from as far as Stellenbosch have created exceptional paintings and taken amazing photos this year. It's a beautiful, colourful display and well worth a visit.
