About the curator:
The Gallery at Grande Provence is considered to be one of the most highly regarded galleries in the Cape, with a reputation for showcasing some of South Africa’s finest established and emerging artists.
The Gallery is under the curatorial direction and management of Mr Trent Read, who recently celebrated 40 years as an art dealer this year. Mr. Trent Read, is the son of the late Mr Everard Read, who was the doyen of South African art dealers. Trent Read worked at Christie’s of London for some years and then ran the family business in Johannesburg, as well as living and running an art gallery in the USA.
I had long admired Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate as one of the most beautiful spaces in the country and I was honoured to have been invited to manage The Gallery.
Mr. Trent Read and Karla Benade (who is the curator at Grande Provence) carefully curate a dynamic programme of regular exhibitions throughout the year, showcasing the amazing talents of South Africa’s creative arts community.
The Gallery also offers advice to clients on collecting, conservation and restoration, as well as valuations for insurance and probate.
