Most artists draw inspiration from their surroundings. It is no wonder then that the beautiful, peaceful surroundings of Stanford provide the perfect palette for some of the Overberg’s best loved artists. From opulent oils to the finest line drawings, ceramics, sculpture, wrought iron work, mixed media pieces and shack art. The Art Route takes you into the studios of these artists, where you can talk to them about their work and get a little insight into their creative process. Private viewings may be booked by contacting the artists or alternatively see the list of open days which will be held on a number of weekends throughout the year.
