Waterkant Gallery is a contemporary art and retail space in the De Waterkant neighbourhood in Cape Town.
Exhibitions will feature the works of new and emerging African talent, as well as more established artists.
The gallery acts as a base from which owner and director Matthew White promotes African art, locally, across Africa and internationally.
Situated in the heart of the historic De Waterkant district, the area formed part of the original Malay Quarter and was formerly known as District 5.
De Waterkant became known for its bohemian setting and creative types who live and work nearby.
Books and cards
The gallery stocks a range of international and African art titles ranging from popular and well-known authors such as Irving Penn, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Annie Leibovitz to specialised books that focus exclusively on Africa, its people, landscapes and wildlife.
Additionally, an extensive range of cards, featuring iconic, internationally-known images to those capturing Cape Town life, as well as custom printed cards with images from current exhibitions are available from the gallery.
