NEWS: Overview of the Klein Karoo Kunsfees

Art world focus this week is on the small town of Oudsthoorn in the Karoo, where the Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees is attempting to shrug off its early beer-can throwing reputation with a line up of local and visiting performers and a whole range of specially curated art shows under the coordination of Clive van den Berg on offer. In News, Kathryn Smith picks 'Drawings in Light' and 'Self' as potential dazzlers. Will Oudsthoorn and the KKNK topple Grahamstown as the festival to go to? Read all about it in the April issue of ArtThrob.
