I visited the gallery while I were in Oudtshoorn during the KKNK. A beautiful tree was standing outside the gallery, with some local artists decorating it. The exhibit itself was the best on the festival. Really worth a visit.

So glad that we came to this art gallery. It's worth going if you have a love for art and you happen to be in Oudtshoorn. The art was lovely and some very interesting sculptures. The young man Wilhelm, was so welcoming and wonderful to talk to about the various pieces and the artist. You must go and check it... More

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,...
