Rita Knoetze Art Gallery

Contemporary Modern Art Gallery in Sedgefield,

Rita’s Story

I was born in the small town of Fochville, in the Northwest Province. My happy childhood memories are of chasing goggas under the streetlamps on summer nights, but in winter my nights were spent in front of the coal stove drawing and sketching.

Apart from painting classes, I have had no formal training in art, but have, since I can remember, the passion to draw, sketch, create and paint. I qualified as draughts person on the mine and it’s demand for precision and perfectionism, is reflected in all my early works. Abstract art was far beyond my comprehension and therefore, when I felt the need to explore this unknown field, I knew I had to listen to this small voice inside me calling to try the unknown! For the first time in my painting career, I arrived a at the total point of freedom and fulfillment and it felt so right!

I am excited about the direction my art is taking me. The abstract art has already proven to be very popular, with several paintings proudly hanging in homes both in SA and abroad.

I have always used oils as my main medium, but have found that acrylics and mixed media seem to work better with the abstracts. The larger sizes and bright colors of my paintings reflect my love for the big and the bold and I am not afraid to experiment and play with colors.

I now live in Sedgefield along the Garden Route .

Knysna Oyster Festival 2013

Knysna Oyster Festival 2013 - The Best 10 days of your Winter!

The annual Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival is one of South Africa’s most popular festivals with huge appeal for sports lovers, families and those in search of a great party!

More than 100 exciting events ranging from cycling, running and adventure races to wine and whisky tastings and gala evenings, are expected to draw about 65 000 people to the beautiful Garden Route town over the 10 days of the festival.

The festival’s two main sporting events, the Pick n Pay Cape Times Knysna Forest Marathon and the Pick n Pay Weekend Argus Rotary Knysna Cycle Tour, will give participants the unique opportunity to run and cycle through the ancient indigenous forests of Knysna and experience the scenic beauty of the area.

And if marathons are not your style, there’s a full programme of adventure and soft sports for the whole family to participate in, including paddling, golf, bowls, soccer, night biking and angling.

Oyster-related events include the annual oyster-shucking (opening) competition, the ever-popular oyster eating competition and the Pick n Pay Oyster & Wine Mardi Gras – a fabulous evening of oysters and wine tasting.

Oyster Hotspots will be selling oysters in a variety of tastes and flavours at give-away prices!

The South African Navy, which always plays a huge part in the success of the Festival, will once again be visiting Knysna, making a grand entrance through the Knysna Heads in their huge minesweepers. And the Navy’s internationally acclaimed band will entertain festival-goers during the street parade and live concert at the Waterfront.

There’s a great programme for kids too – the Pick n Pay Young Oyster Festival includes youth theatre, puppet shows, creative art workshops and cooking courses. The Knysna Sport School Sports Fair will give kids the opportunity to try their hand at a variety of sports, free of charge.

The Pick n Pay Oyster Festival Guide featuring the full programme and a list of all Hotspots, will be available soon from the Knysna and Sedgefield Tourism offices.
