Knysna Art Route

The Knysna Art Route is the first stage in the process of reviving the festival
started by Dale and Janny Elliott under the auspices of the Knysna Arts
Society in the 90's.
This year will be a celebration of the visual fine arts with potters, painters,
woodworkers, photographers, and framers, all sharing their creativity. Special
trips to the townships, added to the exhibitions, demonstrations and other
happenings, make for a diverse and balanced program.
Investec Wealth & Investment have made this all possible. Not only have they
provided the financial backing for the entire project, but their staff have also
assisted in the planning and implementation. Their involvement and support
has given the event and the Art Society a much needed boost. We also thank
the Knysna Municipality and Tourism who have given us logistical support,
encouragement and advice.
As you journey on this art route, we invite you to share the creative enjoyment of
our many talented local artists. We trust you will enjoy their works as much as
they did in producing them.

There is something about solid wood furniture that appeals beyond the aesthetic. Combining functionality with unique grains, natural warmth and sturdy steadfastness, pieces like these are timeless and special.

Whether old and elegant, or new and contemporary, Fine Furniture in Knysna understands the allure of solid wood furniture and offers the option of both. Its elegant showroom not only boasts classic antiques, original art and collectors' items but also the Simply Pierre range of solid wood furniture from acclaimed Cape Town-based designer Pierre Cronjé.

Owned by indigenous timber merchants George and Jim Parkes, Fine Furniture represents the culmination of an industry in which they and their ancestors have been intricately a part for more than a century.
