Art Club
About the Session

Strauss & Co’s monthly ART online sales have, over recent years, gained increasing popularity, with both first-time and established collectors recognising the value and the ease of collecting art online.

On Tuesday 7 May at Strauss & Co’s Cape Town offices, the May Art Club sees an expansion of the usual format to include a book launch and Q&A with artist and author Dominique Cheminais at 6pm. Paintings by Cheminais, which feature characters from her book, The Maze, will be on exhibition, and are available in the Art Club session as the first seven lots. Additional works will be available for immediate purchase.

Preceding this is a walkabout by Strauss & Co specialists at 5:30pm. Each specialist will highlight their favourite works from the auction.
