The annual Welgemeend Art Month 2022, hosted by Strauss & Co and collectors Frank and Lizelle Kilbourn, celebrates the visual arts with a month-long programme of events and a themed art exhibition, hosted in the historic manor house of Welgemeend in Cape Town. This year’s exhibition is titled “Homage: Erken/Verken” and pays homage to the founders of Die Kunskamer, a ground-breaking Cape Town art gallery established in 1971 by art market pioneer Louis Schachat and his wife Charlotte. Louis passed away in 2013.

Charlotte has kindly agreed to the collaboration for 2022 August Art Month and is playing an active role by lending key artworks to the exhibition and providing valuable information and archival material about Die Kunskamer and the artists it represented over the years.
