Lize Art Gallery in Aberdeen Street is the 21st gallery to join the Hermanus First Fridays (HFF) Artwalk, just in time for the Night of a Thousand Drawings on Friday 6 December. Located in the traditional fisherman’s cottage in Aberdeen Street that is home to the Barefoot Cook Restaurant, this attractive gallery might be just the place to end off your Artwalk with a scrumptious meal, especially on a summer’s evening when you can sit outside in the delightful courtyard garden.
Local artist Lize Smit, who struck out on her own after leaving The Art Gallery last year, opened her new gallery in the Barefoot Cook in April and hasn’t looked back since. In fact, this collaboration with Anton Verhoogt, owner/chef of the Barefoot Cook, is working so well that Lize has also moved her studio to the premises. “I have sold out so much of my stock that I am now working round the clock to produce new works,” she says.
Lize Art Gallery is currently running a pre-season special of 25% off selected original artworks until 20 December, which will be the opening day of her new solo summer exhibition. You’ll find the gallery (and the Barefoot Cook) at 12 Aberdeen Street and the opening hours are Monday to Friday from 10:00 – 16:00 and Saturdays from 10:00 – 14:00. Lize can be contacted on 076 155 9015 and the Barefoot Cook on 028 312 4681.
