10 – 19 June 2022
The tenth anniversary offers the opportunity of looking back with thanks and gratitude, while at the same time, looking forward with confidence.
In 2014 seven artists were invited to install eight sculptures at Gearing’s Point. These eight installations launched Sculpture on the Cliffs. This outdoor, site-specific art exhibition is unique and is free-to-the-public. The sculptures placed along the cliff tops, against the spectacular backdrop of Walker Bay celebrate diversity and inclusivity. The exhibition remains in place
In celebration of FynArt10 a bumper exhibition will be installed by sixteen artists, all of whom have previously taken part in this exhibition against this spectacular setting. The participating artists are Dylan Lewis (2014), Jaco Sieberhagen (2015), Gavin Younge (2016), Wilma Cruise(2016), Brahm van Zyl (2017), Mark Chapman (2018), Haidee Nel (2018), Angus Taylor (2018), Frank van Reenen (2018), Sifisiso Mkhabela (2019), Right Mukore (2018), Ian Redelinghuys (2019), Izanne Wiid (2019), David Griessel (2020/2021), and Nanette Ranger (2020/2021).
