We attended their exhibition and we got introduced to some very good local wine from Calitzdorp, if you love art and sculptures this is a must visit.

Some interesting art. Need to be into the abstract art especially to enjoy the beauty of the art. Coffee shop is quite nice and the outdoor sitting area is very nice to sit and relax and enjoy the beautiful SA air.

I was astound to find a local woman sitting in the gallery's reception area breastfeeding in front of any one that visits. Maybe this is art ? Or maybe, as a white South African I were raised to conservative, but I felt instantly uncomfortable. The actual art pieces was less than I expected and, in my opinion, not that well... More

Art Karoo is one of my favourite art galleries in the area (Karoo and Garden Route). I love the bubbling water feature alongside the steps leading to the front door, and the peaceful quiet once inside. There is a diverse selection of very talented artists represented here, not least of Stephen le Roux Parsons (my new favourite, and I found... More

Having lived and worked abroad for most of my adult life, I do not easily [with reason] praise South African art establishments. Art Karoo deserves much praise. The gallery-cum-cafe that I loved in Europe, Barcelona particularly works extremely well. The standard of art excellent as is [this is where other art galleries in S Africa fail] the use of space,...

What a pleasant surprise to see the revamped Gallery, a job well done. ArtKaroo has always been a home for artists, and especially for local artists from the Klein Karoo. I have seen some of the most beautiful, and provocative works of art there. Also, some of the best parties are to be had there, with the opening of exhibitions,... More
