BOSCHENDAL NORVAL ART GALLERY

The Manor House doors have been opened to welcome an exciting and meaningful partnership with the Norval Foundation. This new satellite gallery will feature the best of South African and African art with rotating exhibitions. 

Work has been completed on a sensitive renovation and restoration of the historic Manor House. In consultation with specialists from Cape Heritage, Boschendal and its architect partners have made temporary changes to the Manor House’s interior because we want to accommodate the art displays and an anticipated increased footfall from visitors excited to see the Norval satellite art exhibitions at the farm.

Visit the gallery shop after your visit to take home print, momentos and curated gift items. 

CURRENT EXHIBITION

Horizon: Selections from the Sanlam Art Collection

 This winter the Boschendal Norval Gallery will present Horizon, a group exhibition showing a century of landscape art selected from the Sanlam Art Collection.

The exhibition will include over 30 works, dating back to the early 20th Century through to recent work by contemporary artists, including significant works by the likes of Maggie Laubser, Jacobus Hendrik Pierneef, David Goldblatt and Nita Spilhaus. Landscape, as a theme, is dense with tension, memory, and knowledge. Landscape, as a physical space has unavoidable political and economic stresses but also many possibilities, entangled in a history that continues to be debated. Many debates around land, the landscape, and our ties to it have been present in artistic discourse for many years, particularly in the South African context.


This exhibition explores the genre of landscape art through different mediums, resulting in work as diverse and varied as the natural biomes seen across South Africa. In this selection of works from the Sanlam Art Collection, themes, tension, hesitation, and experimentation are foregrounded. Horizon puzzles the duality of interactions that have occurred across different landscapes by different people.

Dream Press

The commercial gallery at Boschendal in collaboration welcomes a new exhibition Dream press.  Having a fierce love for vibrant, tactile, Risograph printing, Dream Press collaborates with independent publishers and creates unique handbound publications- some of which are for sale.

 

Visitors can always expect be welcomed by a contemporary collection of art that contrasts with the Manor House’s rich history, providing a nuanced experience for art lovers.

The first year’s programming will be drawn from Norval Foundation’s Homestead Collection, which features artists from across Africa, but with a strong Southern Africa representation. Exhibitions rotate every three to four months and admission is free.
