The Baardskeerdersbos Art Route began as an initiative by the reclusive artists’ community to bring attention to their work. The Route itself takes place only twice a year and, among those who know, is very popular and singularly different. It’s a rare opportunity to meet the (normally reclusive) artists, and to understand the artistic process in a social setting.
The weekends draw between 200-300 visitors per day, with most starting at the B’bos Art Gallery on the Main Road, and then dispersing to the various artists on the route.
The works are diverse and definitely not run-of-the-mill, prompting anything from surprise and admiration at the provenance of the media used, to awe at the results and joy in their beauty.
