The Artisan Gallery is based in Florida Road, the epicentre of Durban’s social scene. The address and trendy neighbours, including Vida E Café, are only two of the many reasons to visit the gallery. Situated in a converted 1926 house, the light-filled space acts as a canvas for an array of items ranging from contemporary fine art to jewellery and cutlery. They also represent many of our country’s award-winning ceramicists, and with the current ceramics trend you are sure to find something new to add to your collection. Ingrid Smith, the owner has a teaching background, but now finds herself living her artistic dream. Her strong curatorial instincts are at home in her gallery where she hosts exhibitions and stocks a range of artworks that have a distinct local theme. The Artisan offers both the art collector and art enthusiasts a space to browse or find their next investment piece.
