Many artists have made the Overberg their home. Local art galleries are filled with local art and some artists display their work at local flea and craft markets.
The area does not only abound with painters, but also with writers, ceramicists, architects, sculptors and glass blowers. Women in Genadendal have revived the art of making Khoi pots based on architectural findings - because of the methods used each pot is unique. Hermanus has an active Art Society and the High School offers art as a school subject. Baardskeerdersbos, Stanford and Villiersdorp have Art Routes where you can go and watch artists at work in their studios.
