Craving a bit of culture this winter? Cape Town’s art galleries offer a great selection of work by local and international artists.
The Association for Visual Arts (AVA) Gallery is a non-profit venture which aims to promote South African and particularly Western Cape artists. The gallery has a partnership with the Spier wine estate, which supports a variety of arts initiatives and has bought the building in which the AVA is housed – 35 Church Street, in the city centre.
There is more artwork to be seen at the Kalk Bay Gallery, in Main Road, Kalk Bay. Established in 1995, this reputable gallery has over 3 000 items of contemporary South African art. International buyers are specially catered for.
Visit Fine Art Portfolio for more information about the galleries.
