Cavalli Estate aims to encourage the local arts through its platforms of public sculpture spaces and a public art gallery. Established and upcoming South African artists are represented and supported by Equus Gallery through regular contemporary exhibitions and events.
The Equus Gallery at Cavalli Estate is a subterranean 600 square meter space with an innovative stretched backlit ceiling conceptualized to simulate daylight, (that has become quite a talking point and draw card to the estate). Apart from the regular contemporary exhibitions in the main Equus exhibition space at 6 -12 week intervals, three additional exhibition spaces showcase valuable permanent collections comprising of a collection of artworks by South African Masters (Pierneef, Stern, Laubser, Tretchikoff etc.), as well as an extensive collection of sport and entertainment Memorabilia that include some of the oldest references to the Springbok Rugby Team and various other local and international items.
The gallery presents a multi - disciplined environment that interfaces Fine Art with Performance, Dance, Industrial Design and Fashion through interactive events that span the exhibition program.
Adjacent to the gallery the Equus Boutique presents exclusive locally crafted items and Fashion products that further enhance the dedication of Cavalli to supporting artists and artisans by creating an outlet for locally crafted products that encourage high quality local production.
The Wine Tasting Center and Restaurant at Cavalli Estate also showcase artworks by various artists on a rotating basis as well as artworks and memorabilia from the Cavalli Private Collection to promote a greater South African Experience and our local artists within the Wine Tourism environment
