The Hannarie Wenhold Botanical Art Gallery Day Visit


Activity Description

Visit the home of the recently launched Grootbos Florilegium. The Hannarie Wenhold Botanical Art Gallery built on Grootbos Nature Reserve is an innovative space dedicated to the Florilegium’s fine botanical artworks and is a celebration of the hard work of all involved over the last five years.
The Grootbos Florilegium is the first contemporary African florilegium. Its intention is to celebrate and honor the Cape fynbos and the Cape Floral Kingdom in the southern Overberg, as a valuable botanical heritage of South Africa and as a record of the many rare, endemic and endangered plants of the region. The Florilegium is a global collaboration, featuring carefully selected botanical artists. 35 celebrated artists from South Africa, Zimbabwe, Reunion and the United Kingdom have lent their talent and expertise to the collaboration. A further 9 come from countries including the Netherlands, Brazil, the USA, Japan, Germany, South Korea and Italy.
The Grootbos Florilegium is representing nothing less than the best of the international botanical arts community.

Customer Reviews

Most enjoyable experience in a world class facility. Thank you to all - Susan

A deeply interesting and uplifting experience, from beginning to end. The remarkable upliftment & empowerment work being done in the local community, to all the work and depth of interest in the biosphere, truly astonishing. As a beginner in Botanical Art drawing, as well as a very keen gardener, only with plants indigenous to the Cape Floral Kingdom, I was mesmerized and enchanted by the works in the art gallery. 2 hours was barely enough time to immerse myself in the work of every artist. Both the hosts were warm, generous with themselves and delightful. Huge appreciation of all the amazing work you do! - Diane

It was the second time that I have have been to the Hannarie Wenhold art gallery during the past three months. I just had to take more people to see the magnificent exhibition. Will be coming again quite soon. - Coreen

What a surprise to find this world class facility right on Hermamus' doorstep. I found the talks so informative and was really impressed by the knowledge and enthusiasm of every staff member that we had contact with. The beauty of the works im the Florilegium was almost too much to take in In one visit. I will certainly be back with any visitors that I might have in the future. Well done on following through on the dreams of the original founders. - Antoinette

We really enjoyed every aspect of the tour. It was also very interesting and informative. - Francois
