Bitou Art is situated in the quaint village of Storms River in the beautiful Tsitsikamma region of South Africa.

The gallery evolved from a display of art in Rafters Restaurant which is part of Armagh Country Lodge in the Village. Now a fully-fledged gallery in conjunction with Bitou Art Studio, it hosts the work of local artists Marion E, Elzette Bester, Susan Kemp and Johan Brink. Participating artists create in a variety of mediums: watercolour, acrylics, oils, decoupage, papier mache and whatever else takes their fancy!

An exciting, new initiative was recently launched ... Art – 4 – All. Affordable, high quality, small paintings, professionally framed and boxed and ready to mail anywhere or to pop into a suitcase - see the website

Many paintings from Bitou Art Gallery have found their way into both local and international collections. All works displayed on this webpage are for sale and can be mailed or couriered to destinations both locally and overseas. Please enquire about rates.
