Getting started early, Fresh Paint gallery kicked off the weekend's events on Thursday evening with its opening of a special exhibition of work by Koos Bronkhorst and Willem Pretorius.
The gallery also displayed paintings by local artists Lynden Lund and Mbali Mfundo and photographs by gallery owner Greg May, who had his camera much in evidence during the opening.
Seen here, festival director Irene Swanepoel with Neil Jardine who was taking a break from keeping kids in order. But you'll see him in a completely different light on Friday at 16:00 in Bell's Chapel when he stars in the festival's first show, 'Headmaster! Headmaster!"
The exhibition will run for the duration of the Preview.
