Spier Artists Patronage Programme

Supporting exceptional artists

Berco Wilsenach's The Blind Astronomer, the artistic culmination of a four year-long research project.


Through the Spier Artists Patronage Programme we offer support over an extended period (of four to five years) to artists we consider to be exceptional and who we believe will benefit significantly from the freedom provided by a supportive patron.

Artists Wim Botha, Paul Emmanuel, Tamlin Blake, Berco Wilsenach and Liza Grobler have all been particpants of the programme.
