Williston Gates (704)

By Donna McKellar, Williston Gates (704), artist print on canvas.

Williston was originally known as Amandelboom (literally “almond tree”) due to the presence of a large almond tree planted in 1768 by Johan Abraham Nel to honour his son’s birth. By the time a station was founded at the site by Rhenish mission under Johann Heinrich Lutz in 1845 the tree had grown into a significant landmark in the dry and largely treeless area. A town grew around the station and it was declared a municipality in 1881. It was renamed in 1919 after Colonel Hampden Willis, Colonial Secretary in 1883.

Donna Mckellar:

Donna is a South African fine artist living and painting in Cape Town. She is well known for her large scale South African landscapes.

She often paints enigmatic and peaceful paintings of the Karoo landscape and its remote buildings. Both of which include large amounts of fine detail and are very moving in nature. In addition, Donna’s works are centered on the idea of urban decay. The loss of beauty and strength, all relate to themes of the common man’s day to day life. Donna is also stirred by various aspects of her own life and insights as a painter. Therefore, she combines light and shadow, building and landscape, which are, first of all, recalled from her memory or feelings. A large range of Donna’s artworks can be viewed at The Studio Art Gallery, which is found at Imhoff Farm, Kommetjie, Cape Town.

Artist Prints: 

Many of Donna’s artworks are offered as fine art digital prints, which have been skilfully photographed and printed on large format inkjet printers. These prints are limited edition and numbered bottom left and signed bottom right. They are printed on the highest quality Van Gogh cotton canvas. The printing process has employed fade resistant, HP Vivera archival inks, which boast a 100+ year fade-proof promise.

These artist prints are offered in varying sizes. Also the prints on canvas can be provided stretched over a wooden frame or rolled in a core for easy shipping. Lastly, each canvas print is treated with a high quality scratch resistant matt art sealant.
