If you’re looking to discover South African art and artists, then you should get to know Carol Lee. Carol is somewhat of an art guru who lives in Parkview, close to all our Johannesburg Guesthouses, and hosts regular exhibitions nearby.
Carol has curated exhibitions of contemporary South African for the last fifteen years, focusing mostly on emerging artists. She showcases these artists alongside established and collectable names and over the years, many of these emerging artists have themselves become the collectable sought-after names.
So many of our overseas guests want to buy art when they are in South Africa. Carol’s gallery is an extraordinary place with so many genres of art that are still at accessible prices. One can find paintings here that are not only beautiful to look at, but become investments too.
It’s one of my favourite places!
Her ‘pop-up’ gallery, Upstairs@Bamboo, is a beautiful space with stunning views of Johannesburg. It’s an easy space where visitors can browse and enjoy the art in a relaxed atmosphere.
Her next exhibition, entitled PORTFOLIO, will be opening during Johannesburg’s September art week and will be on 12 to 20 September. It coincides with the FNB Art Fair, also opening this weekend.
Included in this current exhibition are artists are: Guy du Toit, Jaco Benade, Karin Lijnes, Cobus Haupt, Louis Olivier, Andrea Rolfes, Jurgen Meekel, Toni -Ann Ballenden, Heidi Fourie, Jenny Parsons and others.
Watch these names!
Details of the PORTFOLIO exhibition can be found at www.facebook.com/CarolLeeFineArt. It’s worth a visit. Get there. Buy some art. Spoil yourself.
