Earlier this week, I wrote about Ceramic Factory’s beautiful new shop situated on the Clairvaux wine estate in Robertson. The second new venture that has just launched on the estate is a contemporary sculpture garden curated by Teresa Lizamore of Lizamore & Associates. Forty sculptures in a natural setting with the idyllic scenery of Robertson as a backdrop, such a great concept.
Lizamore@Clairvaux will host sculptural exhibitions that will change each season. Visitors can expect to see works by acclaimed South African artists as well as upcoming new talent. From playful to serious, the sculptures aim to appeal to a wide audience and to introduce more contemporary sculpture to the Boland region. The garden is brand new, so in a few years time, when all the trees and plants have grown, one can imagine it will be quite magical.
So if you’re a fan of local art be sure to plan a trip out to Robertson soon.
