“Discerning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2014

This is a top notch gallery for contemporary African art. I especially like their collection of sculpture. The gallery is a cut above all other JoBurg gallery. The building itself is quite interesting and the staff very courteous and well informed. Definitely worth a visit.

“elegant always”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2013

This is one of the best and most renowned galleries in JHB and well worth a visit to get a 'pic' of local and international art flavor in SA.
Accross the road, Circa is a fabulous architectural piece and great function venue.

“Spaces of Light”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2013

This gallery is a lovely flow of light with gallery spaces being inside and outside in the gardens. It is such a joy to visit and the art is excellent. Keep looking out for the sculptures of Dylan Lewis, they are scattered throughout the gallery and they are marvelous.
