A must-visit art space! Incredible pieces and friendly, knowledgeable staff. I always enjoy the time spent here and love returning for the new exhibitions. Also a great activity to share with friends and family visiting from outside of Joburg!

The Melrose art gallery is a great destination for Pan African Contemporary Art. The exhibitions are well curated. The space is beautiful and there is a large variety to enjoy. Highly recommended if you are in Johannesburg or are looking to acquire art.I was assisted and expertly guided by a young man Tyron Redman - took his time with me and it was most informative

This is one of my favourite galleries in South Africa (and globally!). The Melrose Gallery has an incredible selection of art on rotation, and they regularly host beautiful exhibitions and events. This is the place to go if you’re interested in the Pan-African Contemporary art movement, or if you’re keen to find out more about it.

This gallery is an absolute must-see if you’re passionate about art. They always have new and interesting exhibitions; my favourite being Sculpt X - the largest sculpture fair in South Africa that usually runs in September of every year.
