August House is affectionately known as "the artists playground" by local artists. That's because this exclusive art building in New Doornfontein provides independent artists with a unique platform. Not only can they exhibit their work, but they are able to make a profit too! As a bonus, August House has a 15 year history on the Joburg art scene. This five storey, classic 1940's industrial building houses in private studios the largest community of pan African fine artists under one roof.
Historically at August House, ‘Open Studio’ exhibitions have provided a platform for art followers and buyers to meet and get to know artists up close and personally in their private art studio spaces. These events also give art lovers the opportunity to buy art directly from the artists at affordable prices – a great opportunity for locals to collect and invest in local contemporary art. So, come and join August House for their September Open Studio edition. This event promises to be a highlight on the fringe Joburg art scene, part of the greater Joburg art week.
August House Open Studios will be hosting over 50 artists selling their art from their private studio's. Come and get up close and personal with artists and their work. Sushi, drinks and coffee will be on sale to keep you refreshed throughout the event.

What Is It?
August House is once again hosting its popular Fringe Art Affair event. The event forms a part of Joburg Art Week, and not only sees 60+ August House artists opening up their private studio spaces to the public, but also provides visitors with the opportunity to discuss the artworks with the artists and even purchase them directly. These Open Studio days happen two to three times a year, and are a fun social event with live performances, music, food and wine.
August House is a legendary artist's hub with a 12 year history in the art world. It incubates, stimulates and supports emerging contemporary African fine artists. It has established itself as an independent art house that accommodates more than 50 independent pan-African artists all under one roof in private art studios. Together these artists collaborate, mentor and incubate other young artists in what is possibly the largest community of pan-African fine artists, all housed in one place, in the country.
