Zimbabwean born Sheena Ridley is a leading South African contemporary artist. The Langkloof Gallery invites you to meet the artist, learn about the mediums in which she works, and see where her inspiration comes from.
Sheena’s paintings, pastels and sculptures focus on movement and stance, influenced by local settings. Her modernistic figures display clever use of light and shade, inferred movement and often a touch of delightful humour.
Sheena also offers sculpture workshops which are five days in duration, with accommodation on site.
Situated on a beautiful Karoo sheep farm, you are encouraged to spend a day, or a weekend enjoying the Langkloof countryside.
You will find the gallery in the Bo-Langkloof, 30km before Uniondale on the N9/R62 and 80km from George, Plettenberg Bay & Knysna(Prince Alfred's Pass).
The Langkloof Gallery also offers itself as an artists' retreat, or artists' residence, where artists can have peace, use of studio space, a beautiful environment to create in.
The Langkloof Gallery also offers dinner, bed and breakfast on this beautiful working farm in the Langkloof, Klein Karoo.
