“Wide selection”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

This is the original art shop in Franschhoek. It is much bigger than it looks from the outside. We've bought a number of pictures here over the last 15 years or so - particularly by Rosita Manser who has a lovely style and captures the local scenery very well. No pressure from sales people which is refreshing!

“No rubbish here”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

I have known Rosita for about 10 years. She is spiritually motivated when she herself works and also feels that she has a duty to offer good quality products in the shop.

It is the sort of place where you can go and chat. The affable Derek was there when we turned up on the off chance of seeing Rosita. I have been four or five times to this outlet and each time has seen something new and different.

By the way when you park outside you will be approached by people wanting to look after your car or begging under various pretexts. This is part of South African life and you can just gently say no thank you. In larger cities I do give people R10 or so for looking after my car especially after dark but not during the day.

“Landscapes and cityscapes and portrait work”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

Rosita and Derek show the work of local and Cape artists who are actively painting now. Easy to park outside and open at the weekends. I have some of my landscapes here so am biased. Elinor Carleton-Smith

“Lovely original art and jewellery”
Reviewed 7 April 2013

The proprietors are an English-Dutch couple who choose the art themselves and they have some really beautiful, unusual, reasonably-priced artwork. This is really one of the nicer art galleries we visited.

“Have to see”
Reviewed 13 January 2013 via mobile

If you like art,this is a must. Rosita has her own unique work and other artwork too. Her studio is also in the gallery. Derrick and Rosita always go out of their way to help people. Even if you not keen on art go and see.
