Get your art fix at the Abe Opperman Gallery in Franschhoek
The gallery is open every day from 10am to 3pm
The Abe Opperman Gallery has recently expanded its Franschhoek location to make room for new art and new ideas. Opperman unveiled his third space, which is open every day from 10am to 3pm, in 2019 following the success of his galleries in De Waterkant and Johannesburg.
This location, although close to Cape Town, provides an alternative cultural context and expands the audience for Opperman’s original works, says curator of the galleries Ben Theron.
FROM FLOWERS TO PLAYFUL CHILDREN
Using mostly black and white, sometimes with possibly symbolic patches of colour, Opperman depicts the world through the eyes of his inner child, and recreates his unique encounters with the ordinary and extraordinary.
You will notice his love for certain things like flowers, trees, alluring landscapes, children at play and the complexity of human beings. “His longing to change our perspective back to child-like wonder is inherent within every piece of art,” says Theron.
