Lizamore & Associates are thrilled to announce that they will be launching a sculpture garden in Robertson in the Western Cape, early in 2016. Through devotion to consistent excellence, Lizamore & Associates are exploring transformative possibilities through contemporary art and are now taking contemporary art to the Boland.
Finding it's home on the Clairvaux wine estate alongside the well-known Ceramic Factory, Lizamore@Clairvaux will host sculptural exhibitions with the idyllic scenery of Robertson as a backdrop. The Robertson Wine Valley is concentrated along the Breede River Valley and the foothills of the surrounding Langeberg and Riviersonderend mountains. Located in the wine valley, Clairvaux is a beautiful fifth-generation family farm in Robertson. The farmhouse is a well-known landmark in Robertson and features in many books including ‘Great Houses of the Western Cape’.
The combination between the scenic mountain range views, the beautiful Clairvaux estate and contemporary sculpture is an idyllic experience for any day visitor. Lizamore@Clairvaux aims to introduce contemporary sculpture to the Boland region and offer tourist and weekend visitors not only the opportunity to view pieces but also investment opportunities in contemporary South African sculpture. Teresa Lizamore, director and curator of Lizamore & Associates says "We are excited to extend the gallery's reach with the launch of our new sculpture garden at Clairvaux. This sculpture garden extends the gallery's market in the Cape and offers exposure to participating artists. We are confident that visitors to Clairvaux will enjoy the sculptural exhibitions."
The Lizamore at Clairvaux sculpture garden will be launched alongside a new Ceramic Factory shop on 27 February 2016. Visitors can expect to see works by acclaimed South Afircan artists, such as Strijdom van der Merwe, Hannelie Coetzee, Uwe Pfaff, Collen Maswanganyi and Ruhan Janse van Vuuren, amongst others, when they visit the estate.
