Knysna Arts Festival

Knysna Arts Festival


We are very pleased to announce that Oakhill Prep students will be exhibiting their art at the upcoming Knysna Arts Festival which will be hosted from 1-9 October 2016 by Lew Geffen Sotheby’s International Realty.  This is the second consecutive year of the festival which is underpinned by the philosophy of stimulating locally-produced art whilst also supporting the greater Knysna community and numerous charitable organisations.

Our students’ exhibition will be on display during the course of the festival at Woodmill Walk … The HUB where much of the festival takes place.  If you would like more information on the festival, please visit: http://knysnaartsfestival.co.za/.

Festivities kick off on 1 October with an opening gala evening and continue through the week where visitors will be treated to a host of art displays, workshops, performances, talks and exhibitions – there will literally be something for everyone.

If you would like to attend the opening of the festival in which their art will also be on display, please see the details below.  Tickets for the opening evening are limited and are available at R100 each at Lew Geffen Sotheby’s offices or you can contact Owen Roberts directly on 079 876 6937.
