“A wonderful gallery with an abundance of local artists exhibiting”
Reviewed 10 June 2011

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 this area is unique with a sense of warmth and depth that is seldom found in commercial galleries. I visit Art Karoo every few weeks as they regularly rotate works and are friendly, helpful and vibrant. Open late into the evenings, and situated on the main street (Baron van Reede), close to many of the best restaurants, it is certainly well-worth leaving a little earlier for your dinner and swinging by the gallery. Works are well-priced and I know they will wrap for travel and remove artworks from frames if required. I am lucky enough to live just down the road, so I just walk home with my purchases. If the owner, Janet, is there when you visit, be sure to have a chat. Lovely lovely lady. Thanks Art Karoo for keeping it current and a breath of fresh air from the other stagnant art galleries in town.
