It has been our dream for years to start something socially involved and culturally rich – an interactive studio space that is also an art classroom and gallery. As our new venue, Meerendal Wine Estate offers our art students and patrons an inspiring and scenic environment in which to enjoy art, wine, music, food and nature. The move to Meerendal has been challenging but so exciting! We are looking forward to a new year with great opportunities.
As a member of the newly formed LNS Art Group (which will manage the gallery at Meerendal), I have set up a studio space in the Meerendal chapel – which we are calling The Chapel Gallery – where visitors will be able to see art being created and curated in front of their eyes and interact with the artists and students while in process.
LNS Art Group is also transforming Meerendal’s cellar into a permanent exhibition space. So far, we have procured over 20 established artists and over 100 works for this commercial gallery. LifeArt School students will automatically be included in the selection process for exhibited works, as we believe in elevating students into professionals through excellent teaching and practical experience.
LifeArt School classes will take place on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays at The Chapel Gallery starting the 16th of January. There is special parking space for seniors in front of The Chapel (take the first left at the Meerendal entrance).
