Situated in the trendy and upmarket V&A Waterfront area, and with galleries in Johannesburg, London and Franschhoek as well, Everard Read and CIRCA Galleries run a rigorous exhibition programme of established and emerging artists throughout the year exhibiting the finest modern and contemporary art from South Africa and abroad.
The Everard Read Gallery, founded in 1996, is spread over two storeys and has a ‘classical’ feel, steering clear of the traditionally neutral white walls of other contemporary galleries. Current exhibitions are shown on the ground floor, while the first floor houses the permanent collection of works by prestigious artists such as John Meyer and Vusi Khumalo. The staff of the gallery are present, friendly and very helpful.
The CIRCA Gallery, unveiled in November 2016 across the road from the Everard Read Gallery, has added a further four exhibition spaces and an outside sculpture garden to the Everard Read/CIRCA group in the Waterfront.
Venue: 3 Portswood Rd, V&A Waterfront
Opening times: Mon – Fri 9am to 6pm | Sat 9am to 1pm | Or by appointment
