The Studio – Simon’s Town

The Studio – Simon’s Town

Situated in the new Harbour Centre, Simon’s Town, you will find a treasure-filled art gallery called The Studio Art Gallery filled with eclectic pieces, both painting and sculpture.

There’s a large variety of both – encompassing small and large pieces ranging from super realism to abstract. There are brightly coloured ones and muted ones. There are painted ones and scratch-boards, there are creations in resin and expressionistic and moody ones – there’s something in this art gallery that will appeal to everyone.

Here are a few works that caught the eye:
