The Art Gallery, Hermanus

Artist Tracy Algar outside The Art Gallery, Hermanus.

Six months ago I moved from Stanford to Hermanus and I’ve been tremendously fortunate to have had some wonderful opportunities to exhibit my work and meet lots of artists and art collectors in my new town.

I really do feel at home.

Now, six months in, I’ve been invited to join four fantastic artists in their all women collective at The Art Gallery, Hermanus.

My first official event will be the new season’s Hermanus First Friday Artwalk, and I’ll be showing some of my new abstract landscape work on the night.

It’s always lots of fun at the artwalk, so I hope you’ll come along and say hello and take a look at the beautiful artworks available for sale. We’re at number 14.

Hermanus: from the edge

Introducing a series of abstract landscapes inspired by sketches made en-plein air on the Cliff Path and at the New Harbour in Hermanus, South Africa.

It is an expanding series as I continue to explore and examine the landscape on my doorstep.

Cliff Path 1 & Hermanus New Harbour can be viewed at Sumaridge Wine Estate in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley.

Please enquire about the availability of these artworks by email or via my contact page.

I ship worldwide with a tracking number.

Abstract Landscape Collage

One night last week we went down to Hermanus New Harbour just before sunset for me to do some sketching and for Arthur (the reason I’ve got so into outdoor painting lately) to take some photographs.

Next time I go to the New Harbour to sketch, I’m going to take a fold-up chair along, because as you can see in the photographs above the bench is rather grotty and looks like it’s been used extensively as a chopping board for bait.

I brought home five little sketches that I created standing up with a little clipboard as my drawing board.

I ripped these sketches up to create the two collages below in my sketchbook. Watch the video above to see the process.
