The annual American Express Winter Sculpture Fair is the destination of choice for Gauteng’s art, food and wine lovers – and the best way to spend Mother’s Day.

Over the weekend of 9 and 10 May, art enthusiasts will be treated to a breathtaking display of large-scale, outdoor sculptures at the 8th annual American Express Winter Sculpture Fair. The event serves as the launch of the 2020 Nirox sculpture exhibition, That Hidden Thread.

The show is focused on the African continent, its potential and its artistic wealth. Curated by acclaimed Spanish curator, Marta Moriarty, That Hidden Thread will see the work of established Moroccan and South African artists exhibited in dialogue with local creators and performers.

To complement the cultural experience, restaurants and wine producers from the renowned Franschhoek Wine Valley, as well as from Johannesburg, will be showcasing their finest culinary and wine offerings.

Visitors will be able to sample delicious foods and world-class wines as they admire the exquisite works of art and browse the beautifully landscaped gardens of the Nirox Sculpture Park.

Taking place, as it does, over the Mother’s Day weekend, from 9 to 10 May, this is the perfect outing for family and friends.

The Nirox Sculpture Park is situated on 15 hectares of landscaped gardens and waterways within an extensive private nature reserve in the heart of the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site. For more information and to book tickets, visit www.wintersculpturefair.co.za.
