The quirky hamlet of Baardskeerdersbos is nestled in a fertile valley between Gansbaai and Elim. The peaceful setting and beautiful surroundings have attracted a diverse cross-section of creative’s working in the mediums of painting, printmaking, illustrating, sculpting, photography, jewelry, functional art, craft, land-art, ceramics, textile art and more. The Baardskeerdersbos Art Route is an initiative started in 2008 by artists living in the area. It is a uniquely local event that grows from strength to strength in the calibre of the art on show and in the engagement with what is unique about the area. The art route is a special opportunity for art lovers, buyers, and collectors to visit normally reclusive artists and view exhibitions in their homes and studios that often includes works not shown anywhere else. You are offered a unique window into the artist’s life and what inspires them. Through personal engagement, not available at other times of the year, you can gain deep insights into each artist’s unique motivation and creativity. The art route takes place twice a year roughly in the autumn and springtime, marking these beautiful times of the year during the transitions of the seasons. Wander through country gardens, vegetable patches, come across farm animals, donkey carts, discover land art, strange installations, take part in workshops, demonstrations, linger on stoeps, connect with other art enthusiasts, be challenged, inspired and stimulated. The area of the Overberg is known for its exquisitely beautiful landscapes and golden light. The biodiversity is unique in the area with the wildness still preserved amongst the farming activity. Remote trigger cameras have recorded wild leopards roaming kloofs. Rich birdlife can be encountered in the B’bos valley from blue cranes to sunbirds. Pristine and rare species of Fynbos from the Cape Floral Kingdom cover the surrounding hills. And it is home to the endangered leopard toad. Visitors can take a gentle walk to artists exhibiting in the rustic village and a leisurely drive along rural roads to those who live on farms and smallholdings nearby. Experience the notorious B’bos hospitality and the celebratory and pioneering spirit of all who live there. Savour local cuisine, from artisan bread, hearty meat and vegetarian delights, complemented with local wines and the specialty of the village, fiery witblits
