Sixty of the country’s top artists will descend on Harrington House in Hilton for the second edition of Harcourts Hilton-sponsored Art in the Country from May 25-28.
The success of last year’s event attracted more than 3 000 visitors, said founder and artist Kathy Jacob, adding that art worth R900 000 was sold, much to the delight of the artists.
Last year’s top seller, Simon Addy, is among the bevy of returning artists, and will be joined by artists from the KZN South Coast and North Coast and their peers from the Western Cape, Limpopo, Gauteng and Mozambique.
The magical ambience will be complemented by a bistro menu courtesy of celebrity chef Jackie Cameron and her crew from the Jackie Cameron School of Food and Wine. A full bar service will provide the liquid sustenance, while Congolese-born singer and songwriter René Tshiakanyi will bring pleasure to the ear.
Visitors also have the option of picnicking in the sumptuous Harrington House gardens with views over the Midlands.
