added about 60, Gordon FROUD is a multi talented artist, who works as well with glass, plastic, photography, cardboard or charcoal and pastel drawings. His reflexion about the impact of geometry on human life makes a stunning spiritual and soul reaching exhibition

The Standard Bank building complex is imposing and warrants respect for not having moved away in difficult times. The main Bank building houses art and also the first gold mine entrance of Gold City 'Egola'. A must for history lovers

The current Henri Matisse exhibition is well worth visiting. I was there on a Saturday morning and it was crowded, perhaps too much so. Although I purposely timed my visit for 11am for a guided tour, the only tour I could see was by a...More
