Uwe Pfaff Solo Exhibition at Is Art
Is Art, South African contemporary art gallery, adjacent to us is hosting an Uwe Pfaff Solo Exhibition from 10 February to 15 March.
Uwe Pfaff boasts a long, illustrious career. He grew up in Germany and immigrated to South Africa in 1970 where he worked as a design draughtsman for an air-conditioning company. He soon went on to take art classes and thereby discovering his love for metal and sculpture work. It hasn’t always been an easy path for this determined artist, but he persevered and is now world famous for his innovative works.
This exhibition hosts all new work, and is not to be missed. The gallery opens at 10am and closes at 5pm. Make a day out of it and pop into The Common Room for breakfast or lunch beforehand.
The latest beauties at Is Art
These are some of the newest stunners at our contemporary fine art gallery, is art: below is a bronze sculpture from Cornelia Stoop, then, also in bronze, are chairs by Guy du Toit. Check out the red sculpture by Uwe Pfaff (we also have one in The Tasting Room), and lastly a little bit of love from Hartedief. Come for a browse and then pop in at The Common Room for a glass of bubbly.
Hop to it
We have some new friends in the sculpture garden, by artist Guy du Toit.
GUY DU TOIT was born in 1958 in Rustenburg in the North West Province. He has been consistently supported by private and public collectors, institutions, academics and fellow artists. He has been honoured with many awards and has in turn been invited to curate and adjudicate exhibitions.
The past few years have increasingly been spent on private and public commissions and in working closely with artists and businesses, especially those involved in design, communications, architecture, advertising and entertainment. Guy currently teaches part-time at the University of Pretoria and works full time from his new home and studio in Swavelpoort.

Eat with your eyes
The Cape Craft & Design Institute’s (CCDI) Handmade Collection 2012 is on display in our restaurant – a collection of the best handmade products from the Western Cape. The beautiful works range from ceramics and textiles to glassware and upcycled materials. From 264 entries the judging panel decided on 70 final, outstanding objects.
CCDI chairperson Bart Verveckken said this: ““The panel has always been looking for products that are not only very well made, but have a strong visual or conceptual appeal; objects with a wow factor.”
Come see for yourself, and feel free to browse with a glass of bubbly in-hand.
