Hermanus Art Circle:
Looking back over 16 years since its inception:
""The VERMONT Art Circle was initiated by Leonie van Loggerenberg and Sue Erasmus, together with a few artists from Vermont and Onrus. In 2003 they started exhibiting in their privately owned "The Farmyard Art Gallery and Framers", with two Bid-n-Buy art sales annually.
The VAC established a respectable art circle with a firm Code of Ethics and proper Constitution resulting in artworks of a very high standard.
We arranged and attended regular workshops and demos by well known artists, visits to neighbouring art shows and galleries and artists studios, doing plein air painting when weather allowed.
After "The Farmyard"closed down, we had exhibitions at various wine cellars, the Old Station building, Hornbill, Kalfiefees, Food n Wine Fairs, and some local restaurants. Come what may, we never closed down!!
For a brief period, between 2011 and 2012, we occupied the smallest gallery in town, the "Little Gallery"in the East Cliff shopping centre.
Since 2013 the VAC exhibited as a pop-up gallery in the PicknPay Centre and the Village Square.
Since its inception, the VAC has expanded and had now numerous members from all over the Overberg, calling for a more inclusive name, which we then changed to The Hermanus Art Circle. (HAC)
The HAC currently exhibits every first week-end of the month in the Annex to the Whale Museum, participating also in "FynArts".
The HAC proudly offers the public excellent artwork from various artists in the area at most reasonable prices.
