Saturday 17th

  • Watch artists in action at How Bazaar where Carey May will be painting.  Browse around, have a fabulous cup of coffee and the best toasties in the Western Cape while you watch him paint.  An artist who will also be in action is surrealist, Pieter van Tonder, who will paint in the courtyard at Grape De-Vine.  He paints in oils and starts the day with a blank canvass and sets himself the unenviable task of completing it in a single day. Watch the artist at work and enjoy a glass or two of local wine and conversation with locals and Pieter, himself. For More Information Contact McGregor Tourism on info@tourismmcgregor.co.za.
