African Art Centre, supporting local artists
An organisation of excellence which changes the lives of artists and crafters by empowering them through innovative skills training, development and promotion
For over 50 years the African Art Centre has provided the means for artists to make a living out of their talents. Artists are assisted to tap into domestic, provincial, national and international markets. The Centre currently supports more than 600 artists.
The exhibition programme ensures that you can visit often throughout the year and always find something new. You will find bead-work and artefacts, telephone wire products, Ilala Palm Baskets, handmade ceramics, paintings, works on paper, sculpture and embroidery. You can purchase artwork at the shop or order corporate gifts.
A comprehensive library of art books assists learners and teachers with research.
