KykNet Fiëstas 2015…

Art portfolio- my work, Studio news/blog

Wednesday just before midnight we (my husband and I) arrived at the President Protea Hotel which was to become our ‘home’ for 2 nights.

Upon arrival we found these lovely chocolates in our room:

Thursday morning all the nominees had a chance to practise their speech…just in case; and each one received a beautiful etching done by Diane Victor:

Afterwards we were treated to a lovely breakfast:

Benoemdes ontbytWe had the afternoon free…so we decided to explore Seapoint and I found some cool vintage clothing and goggles.

Eventually it was time to get ready for the evening:

croppedI made a rubber bow-tie for my husband…that is how far he will go when it comes to dressing up 😉 and I decided to wear the “Marie-Antoinette” wig with face paint and my rubber dress.  Apparently Marie-Antoinette is famous for the line: “Let them eat cake”…..but in this case: “Let them eat rubber”!

As it turns out I wasn’t the only one that likes dressing up!:

These lovely people greeted the guests arriving on the blue carpet at the Artscape Theatre.  Inside we were greeted by a lady with a table as a dress, serving us some sparkling wine!

It was the first time I experienced an Art Fair….I enjoyed every moment at the Cape Town Art Fair 2015 and am at loss for words- so I thought I’ll just share the experience in pictures with you!

Thank you to all the photographers who captured the moment x
