Plett Arts Festival at The Plettenberg this June

Now in its third year, Plett ARTS Festival is morphing its identity into something quite unique, and has garnered a small, but growing following. Running from 21-28 June 2019, the festival has been timed to coincide with the Knysna Oyster Festival for those who would like to indulge in the best both festivals have to offer. As part of the 2019 Plett ARTS Festival programme, there will be seven ‘opening nights’ during the festival at various venues around Plettenberg Bay.

Phulani_Liebenberg-002The Plettenberg will be hosting the ‘Women of Art’ exhibition in partnership with Gallop Hill Gallery. The show features work by Elize Bezuidenhout, Phulani Liebenberg and Marieke Prinsloo Rowe,  and there will be an introduction of the mysterious artist, Olivier. The mystery around Olivier has caused a buzz in the art world. Having been an artist for many years, she never released any of her artwork to the public due to her connection to very influential people in the art industry.  The exhibition will be open to the public from 21 – 28 June 2019..
