Langkloof Gallery and Sculpture Garden

Western Cape, Uniondale

Zimbabwean born Sheena Ridley, a leading South African contemporary artist, has opened her Langkloof Gallery and Sculpture Garden.
Sheena moved to the area five years ago from Elgin Valley/Grabouw, where her sculpture garden, Oudebrug Gallery, annually attracted hundreds during the Elgin Open Gardens.
The Langkloof Gallery invites you to meet the artist, learn about the mediums in which she works, and see where her inspiration comes from.
Sheena’s paintings, pastels and sculptures focus on movement and stance, influenced by local settings. Her modernistic figures display clever use of light and shade, inferred movement and often a touch of delightful humour. These are exhibited in the newly renovated barn (a marvel in itself) to which her workshop is attached. This allows the visitor to see her works in progress, first hand.
Situated In a beautiful rural setting, you are encouraged to spend a day, or a weekend, not too far from home. The sculpture garden is a young, informal, mainly indigenous and water-wise ensemble of plants, and has spectacular views down the valley. Landscaping, being one of her passions, compliments her sculptural environment. Teas and light lunches are available by prior arrangement, and you are welcome to bring a picnic. Children are welcome. There are dogs and other farm animals on site, so please, no dogs.
The gallery is wheelchair friendly, the garden is a bit uneven and most can be navigated.
Ferro cement and ceramic sculpture workshops, with accommodation on site, are offered by contacting Sheena directly.
