Words meet Art in May at Grande Provence during Literary Festival

Friday, 15 May to Sunday, 17 May, The Gallery at Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate, Franschhoek

Adding an artistic twist to the annual Franschhoek Literary Festival, The Gallery at Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate is showcasing Fluit, fluit my storie is uit, an exhibition by artists Marinda du Toit and Aidon Westcott curated especially for the weekend of Friday, 15 May to Sunday, 17 May.

Inspired by stories from all over the world, Du Toit’s signature three dimensional assemblage sculptures, intertwined with mixed media collages by Westcott, provide a rich storybook tapestry and is a must on your festival itinerary.

Both artists have exhibited their works extensively in local art galleries. Westcott exhibits regularly at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown, and Du Toit featured specially designed sculpture characters as well as music compositions for the short animation film Little Bang.
