Private Gallery Napier

“Art is when you hear a knocking from your soul — and you answer.” ~Terri Guillemets

Ready

Usually we are open ‘by appointment only’ and that works fine. We only get the really interested people in and  9 of 10 visits result in sales. This weekend however the village will be overcrowded during the Napier Patatfees. Reason to keep the gallery open between 9 and 5 Saturday and Sunday. And Yvonne has to do it in her own for Herman is hired to picture the different sport events such as MTB-race and half marathon.

Herman exhibits over 50 different photographs and imaginaries in prices ranging from R 200.00 to R 9000.00

Yvonne shows both of her jewellery collections. All items are made in limited editions and range in prices between R 350.00 and R 1250.00

We don’t except credit cards but we have Snapscan and EFT facilities. You are welcome.

‘Napier Patatfees’ opening times

Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 June (Napier Patatfees) open between 9 AM and 5 PM (other days by appointment).

The inspirational location

We are located in Napier, Western Cape, South Africa along the main road between Cape Town (90 minutes if no traffic jam) and Cape Agulhas (40 minutes with rural traffic jam). Tourists tend to rush pass our village on their way to their mainstream destination. But more and more explorers amongst those travellers are discovering this gem in the Overberg region. Many villagers work from the comfort of their own home. Garages became workshops and studios for the numerous artisans. There is ‘The Big Cheese’ for example; cheese straws that the privileged Capetonians and tourists buy at Giovannis in Cape Town, a militaria museum, a toy museum, diverse artists (some with name and fame), a miniature steam engine builder (exporting all over the globe); just to mention a few.  The village has the largest sundial in South Africa; the architecture of the church attracts architects and designers but most of all we like the rural surroundings with their farms and local wildlife; the ever changing sky colours, the earth colours (hence Yvonne’s jewellery) and the generous and genuine hospitality of the community. Well … why not discover it yourself

The choice

On behalf of a multinational (head office in Germany) a scouting organisation made an inventory of all the accommodation in a radius of 50 km around Arniston where the company wants to celebrate its anniversary this coming year. We were surprised; only 3 accommodations in Napier complied with their demands including our ‘Banana House‘. And what’s more? Private Gallery Napier is also on the top of the list of what to do in the area for the simple reason that visitors from abroad can buy truly original South African presents for family and friends.
