SOLO EXHIBITION | Kelly John Gough


24 September to 25 October 2017

Kelly explores the changed role of fine art at the beginning of the 21st century. Where visual arts had to create awareness and provoke critical thought during the 20th century, our senses are being raped by a merciless stream of information through mass media at present. People turn to the arts, specifically to the visual arts for aesthetics, relief and hope.



GROUP EXHIBITION | 01 Sept to 23 Sept 2017

Abstraction indicates a departure from reality in depiction of imagery in art. This departure from accurate representation can be slight, partial, or complete. Abstraction exists along a continuum. Even art that aims for verisimilitude of the highest degree can be said to be abstract, at least theoretically, since perfect representation is likely to be exceedingly elusive.

Toni-Ann Ballenden, Andrew Kayser, Chrisel van der Merwe, Johannes du Plessis



21 June to 20 August 2017


‘The winter solstice, the rebirth of the sun, is an important turning point, as it marks the shortest day, when the hours of daylight are at their least. One ancient definition of solstice is ‘standing still sun’. In a mad whirlwind,  half of 2017 has passed. The ‘Solstice’ group exhibition   presents an inspiring body of work  and hopes that the works on show will trigger a moment of ・standing still・ and reflection for the viewer.’

‘PAN AFRICA, series I, 01 March to 15 May 2017

Pan-Africanism, the idea that peoples of African descent have common interests and should be unified. Historically, Pan-Africanism has often taken the shape of a political or cultural movement. In the context of this series of visual art exhibitions, Pan-Africanism is the sentiment that ALL people that have chosen Africa as their homeland, essentially have a great deal in common within the extraordinary diversity of the continent – a fact that deserves notice and even CELEBRATION.

‘constructing imagination’

10 Sept to 29 Sept 2016


Janko’s sculptures are inspired by the natural shapes and textures of dried out bull kelp stems, collected on various beaches around South Africa. His sculptures are a unique mastery of motion, form and texture influenced by the perceipts of contemporary futurism in sculpting.

bronze sculpture exhibition

‘Stanislaw Trzebinski’

July / August 2016


The central theme of his work is the human connection – or rather disconnection – to a vanishing natural world. He heightens our sense for aesthetics, innate love for proportion, color and the beauty of the natural world. On a deeper level, he touches our sense of belonging and ultimately asks the viewer the eternal question: ‘Where are we from, where will we go?’
