A great place to discover South African contemporary artists

The gallery celebrated its hundredth anniversary a few years ago. A great choice of contemporary south african artists and amazing sculptures. Playful and inspiring!

This gallery epitomises the Johannesburg art scene, they represent most of the upcoming , collectable artists and are situated slap bang in the middle of the art mile. There are a couple of fab places to have lunch across the road as well as to visit the CIRCA gallery. Worth visiting on a long leisurely saturday,

Everard Read is an inspiring space. Pity we missed the Matthew Hindley exhibit, but we were pleasantly suprised by the other pieces. On display was now Guy du Toit's whimsical Hare There and Everywhere series.

Everard Read is a local art institution that has promoted dozens of local artists, especially previously disadvantaged artists, into acclaim.

This is a beautiful, airy space with niche sculpture gardens hidden around. Michael McGarry exhibit on now is great. Highly recommended for contemporary southern African art.

It was actually my 15 year old grandson who suggested we visit the gallery while we had some time to waste in rosebank. The gallery never disappoints - the displays are good - a lovely way to while away an hour
