HOODWINX aims to be a platform for South African independently published and produced books, poetry, film, documentaries, music and art and fashion. As well as a platform for information sharing on relevant issues, the raising of consciousness and self awareness.
The Gallery: Currently showcasing SA artists. The gallery is rotated on a monthly basis. The exhibiting artists are Megs Reefer – illustrator, Jason De Villiers – illustrator, Sara Gamerschlag – Fine artist and Hannah Parmanandam – photographer.
In September we are holding a vintage exhibition, showcaseing Tarryn Gordons collection of vintage inspired fine art,see pics below The venue is being decorated by vintage décor expert Lojanka De Wet.
Hoodwinx is always looking to make contact with artist wishing to exhibit as well as musicians and writers. The book library in Hoodwinx contains only self published South African literature and is growing all the time. The venue itself has a beautiful bar and wrap around balcony for the neighbourhood to meet and enjoy the breath taking view of the mountain and harbour.
Launching soon is the coffee shop where locally produced SA music can be heard while reading SA literature and sipping great coffee.
Hoodwinx is created as a home for artists and creative south Africans to express their unique creative voice. It is a space for the public to take ownership of and make it our art society.
The space aims to attract book clubs, dinner clubs, performances, conscious discussions and talks. It is set up to be used for book launches, art exhibitions, CD launches, showcasing fashion, films and poetry evenings.
