Former Miss SA’s No 5 on Hudson

Open to the public from Friday, 15 June 2018, No 5 on Hudson is an elegant new art gallery based in the heart of Cape Town’s trendy De Waterkant. The gallery is founded by former Country Living SA owner, Sandy De Bruin.

Drawing on themes like women and art and shades of grey, the former Miss South Africa has used her platform to focus on the empowerment and upliftment of female artists in South Africa. When speaking of how she has selected the gallery’s featured artists, Sandy explains, ‘My focus is not only on beautiful and meaningful art but how art translates into our environment and how it fits into our aesthetic space.’

Sandy has selected pieces by renowned local artists, including Fiona Rowett, Nicole Pletts, and Lesley Charnock to name a few, setting a curated style synopsis from the outset.

‘South African artists are incredibly talented and inspirational. They often stand out on the international stage, as is a testament to the enormous number of art pieces sold overseas,’ notes Sandy. ‘I want visitors to No 5 on Hudson to be embraced in an experience that heightens the visual senses and appreciates art in a space contemplated by soul and design.’

No 5 on Hudson is located on 5 Hudson Street, De Waterkant. The gallery is open from 9 am – 5 pm Mondays to Fridays and 9 am– 1 pm on Saturdays.
