Art Experiences

Outsider art abounds in the Karoo Heartland

There is no place like the Karoo Heartland, and our artists tend to dream as large as our big sky above. From the delightfully quirky Walter Battiss – creator of the iconic Fook Island – to beloved Helen Martin’s Owl House in Nieu-Bethesda, each Karoo art experience is unique. There must be something inspiring about our golden Karoo air because the ancient Khoikhoi would use a cave wall to express their creativity in the form of paintings even in ancient times! This is an inspiring and thought-provoking experience for all art lovers.
