    Beautiful art in a beautiful neighborhood!! Very small but packs a punch with the beautiful art that they have. If you're looking for pieces of history and culture this is the place. The artwork was phenomenal. Also got a chance to see the artist creating more beauty while there.

    I just adore Jennifer!! She supports local artists and curates each show to perfection.
    One of the best art galleries in Cape Town to visit. Also features a fantastic online website to purchase art.

    I've been to this gallery twice. Each time I've visited I was inspired by the beautiful art. It's very captivating and truly breathtaking. I have purchased two prints and I'm very pleased with what I have. I will continue to go back because what I've seen is worth my return. I'm so sorry but I can't think of the represent overs name. He is such a warm man and very personal. I would recognize him anywhere lol😀

    A delightful wee gallery crammed with ceramics, paintings, prints, embroideries, jewellery and all kinds of interesting and quirky bits and pieces. If you are looking for a unique handmade gift this is the place to come. Prices are incredibly reasonable and the quality is good. My eye was taken by gorgeous handembroidered cushion covers featuring all kinds of animals in bright colours. But I am sure that there is something for almost everyone in here. Just on the main street in Kalk Bay, it is very easy to find.

    Really awe-inspiring fine art! Very large oil paintings and a few sculptures. Such a lovely modern feel, very elegant and definitely on my wish list!

    This beautiful arts space hosted my Made For Women exhibition along with What Is Ubuntu. The physical space is beautiful and well run. There is a library downstairs and galleries upstairs. It is an active community thinking deeply about how to do good work in a complex environment.

    Situated in Church Street is this urban gallery. This gallery is full of artworks by some of South Africa's 'refined' street artists. The gallery is nice and intimate which makes the curation more precise and selective. You can find a Norman O'Flynn or a Dion Cupido here!

    I stumbled over Art du Cap when I was on a photo walk with a professional photographer.
    On most days you will have the opportunity to talk to the painter.
    When you are in Bo-Kaap you should have a look.

    The coffee shop and always interesting art gallery are now fully integrated and make an unusual and comfortable environment in which to enjoy a light (and good quality) meal. Worth a regular visit.

    So ive been popping in and out of this gallery, and i never fail to see new and exciting things! The shop always has a feeling of calm but at the same time excitement! The recent comic art I`ve seen was spectacular and that`s not even the best part!! They support LOCAL artists!!! something of a rare site and i have utmost respect for the owners for realising what`s important and trying to revitalise or recreate the way Captonians see the art of today!!! KEEP IT UP! You guys are legend!!!

    Excellent art gallery in the Portswood area of the Waterfront. Worth visiting frequently as exhibitions change often.

    Very nice gallery and gift store. They have upscale pieces not the traditional cheap African stuff. Some really neat stuff

    We brought a ceramic wine cooler shaped like a mask.
