ArtKaroo features art of the Karoo,
created by artists in the Karoo,
inspired by the Karoo.

If art and the Karoo appeal to you, this should too.

The essence of the Karoo- clear skies, illuminating expansive plains, and towering mountain ranges, wreathed in the miasmas of geological time, draws many artists from further afield. Many settle, finding inspiration and clarity of thinking here. Over the years, ArtKaroo evolved here, it’s origin being from an artists’ collective, The Artists of Oudtshoorn. It has remained as a hub of creativity for artists of the Karoo and as a physical and virtual exhibition space.

ArtKaroo hosts work of internationally acclaimed and established artists, to younger and emerging artists . Fine art, authentically expressed is the thread that runs through the work, with an avoidance of commercial repetition. Work not available elsewhere can often be viewed here.

A participant of the Klein Karoo Klassique and the Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees, the gallery also holds exhibitions throughout the year , as well as workshops, en plein air outings
(ArtKaroo Outdoors),figurative sketching sessions and Film and Bookclub nights.
