Rust-en-Vrede Art Gallery and Clay Museum
The Rust-en-Vrede is an Art Gallery that hosts works of art by established and emerging artists, as well as a clay museum.
Originally built as a prison and police headquarters, the building is run as an Arts and Culture centre by the Durbanville Cultural Society.
The Rust-en-rede art gallery has three exhibition spaces with the main gallery consisting of two rooms - Salon A and Salon B. Salon C is in the entrance room, which is a more informal space used for small exhibitions.
The Clay museum contains a collection of South African ceramics representing the various techniques of making, decorating and firing.
The exhibition changes frequently and includes the Oude Meester Collection, Linn ware and ethnic pottery.
