THE SPIER ART COLLECTION
The Spier Art Collection is one of the largest contemporary South African art collections. Artworks are given the context they deserve: displayed in our meticulously restored Cape Dutch buildings, meeting rooms and spaces inside the Spier Hotel. Each venue is treated as an exhibition space, showing works by both emerging and established artists.
Works created on corrugated iron from shacks destroyed by fire, by artists such as Willie Bester, Lindile Magunya and Ernest Fulani. Expressing the devastation caused by these frequent crises in shanty towns.
These works by Tamlin Blake, often produced in collaboration with the Qubeka Bead Studio, are created from discarded trash.
In addition to acquiring works from artists’ studios, galleries and art auctions, Spier also regularly commissions large-scale works. Paul Emanuel’s ‘Transitions’ was seen by 2 500 Spier visitors before it went on to be exhibited internationally.

Ancient History. New Life.
Going since 1692, Spier is one of South Africa’s oldest wine farms, with a fascinating history and a legacy that the owners never take for granted. Today the farm has a modern, conscious energy. Focused on art and good farming, Spier is about farm-to-table food and accoladed wines. Its people are committed to living and working in ways that bring positive change to our environment and community. The Spier Hotel and conference team invite you to do business in an inspiring atmosphere.
