The fifth Annual FynArts Festival draws to a close in Hermanus and it has, as in previous years, been a huge success, thanks in no small part to the unstinting work of its organiser, Mary Faure. Unless one attends, it is hard to imagine the sheer volume of art available in this small coastal town. Already endowed with a considerable artistic talent of its own, the festival brings so much more at every level, especially musically.
There are concerts and recitals every day, workshops on every aspect of sketching, painting, sculpture, photography, birding, quilting, cooking, writing, wine, decorating, and many other topics. The list and the opportunities are endless. It is without a doubt the best place to be for the ten days of its duration.
