The art gallery is next to the restaurant. The building, one of the oldest on Nacht Wacht, dates back to the early 1700s. It still boasts the original floor and doors, and even the feeding cribs are still in tact. Here you’ll find art painted by NachtWacht owner Melanie Albertyn – paintings of the dunes surrounding Arniston, Giverngy’s waterlillies, the Overberg landscapes, nudes, and much more.

Today Melanie’s paintings are showcased around the world – from America, across Europe, to Australasia, many in the homes of some of the world famous visitors to the Overberg.

“A house without a painting is like a body without a soul. Just after I got married, we had no money for art in our own home. My husband suggested I paint, to fill the walls. So I did – even though I had no formal training. Now I attend weekly art classes, to hone my technique. Recently I tried my hand at nudes. I find it wonderful to work with the human body.”
