TO ENTER AN ARTIST’S GARDEN IS TO VISIT ANOTHER WORLD
Eight years in the making, the Artists Garden in Stellenbosch is a place of expansive vistas, scents and the sounds of nature, with tranquil groves, hidden paths and lush indigenous vegetation. The project began serendipitous in 2009 when Lewis hired an excavator on a whim and began shaping the contours of what would become the seven-hectare sculpture garden. Today, the artist continues to explore themes integral to his work in this serene landscape on the slopes of the Stellenbosch Mountain looking out over vineyards towards the ocean.
Over 60 sculptures constituting a comprehensive record of Lewis’s full artistic development thus far interact with the surrounds and its visitors, expressing the notion of the untamed wilderness within the human psyche: the human form, shamanic gures, monumental abstracted fragments and his iconic great cats. Focused on indigenous species, particularly fynbos, the garden has been planted to give year- round colour.

As the Sculpture Garden is an exceptionally exclusive space, the number of Weddings and Events held in the Garden are kept to a limited amount each year. Once the Garden is booked, guests have exclusive access to the entire garden, ensuring complete privacy for the duration of their event.
In order to experience all that is the An Artists Garden in Stellenbosch in person, we would love to invite you to a site visit and allow the 2iC Team to show you around this incredible, multifaceted space. Please contact us directly to set up a suitable date and time.
