Due to the Covid 19 lockdown, this long-awaited exhibition has been postponed to February 2021.
The Simon’s Town Art Group (STAG) was founded by artists Ryno Swart, Mike Munnik and Paul Andrew in 1998.
Artists from the far Southern Cape Peninsula formed the group. Their first exhibition took place in April 1998 at the Albertyn’s Stables in Simon’s Town – later the Stone Age Foundry.
Members now meet monthly on the third Thursday of each month in the STAG Studio, on the Simon’s Town Library premises, for demonstrations, discussions, videos and hands-on workshops from practising artists.
Current artists exhibit regularly at a variety of exhibitions in their personal capacity. There is also an Annual Member’s Exhibition in the Simon’s Town Library Hall. Income generated by way of membership fees, commission and donations improve STAG’S facilities and equipment and help support local charities and schools which focus on art.
This exciting MEMBER’S EXHIBITION at The Studio Art Gallery in May 2020 will be the first of its kind for STAG. Recent work created by members will enable the Group to showcase the diverse talents and dedication of the STAG artists.
