The picturesque Mpumalanga town of Dullstroom might not be the first place that comes to mind when one speaks of fine art, but the town has a surprisingly well-established art scene that shouldn’t be missed during your stay. Here are some of our favourite art galleries in Dullstroom.
Arend Eloff Gallery
The Arend Eloff is one of the art galleries in Dullstroom known for its one of a kind sculptures. Eloff’s work is deeply influenced by the natural world and the relationship of man and beast. Some of his most famous pieces are equestrian inspired – so if you’re a lover of all things horse-related, this is the gallery for you.
Address: iCreate Centre, Naledi Drive Dullstroom
The Art@67 Art Gallery showcases a range of fine art by well-known South African artists. Featured artists include Karen Kieviet, Pera Schilling and Aly Kilbride. The gallery also exhibits ceramics by Karen Kieviet and Clementine van der Walt and unique hand-blown glassware by Guido van Besouw. A detailed list of the artists on show at Art@67 can be seen here.
Anything But Dull
Anything But Dull is an art studio situated along Dullstroom’s busy Naledi Drive. The studio features unique décor items and beautiful hand-painted pieces by local artists. What we love about Anything But Dull is that it offers a range of art classes and furniture workshops for all different skill levels. Classes can be customized to suit individuals, small groups and even team building exercises. You can contact Sharon at Sharon@anythingbutdull.co.za.
Robert Badenhorst Art Gallery
Robert Badenhorst Art Gallery showcases a mixture of established and emerging artists in Dullstroom. The gallery was established by Robert Badenhorst in 2011. The gallery features the works of Robert’s father as well as two complete paintings of important historical sites in the Transvaal, which Robert was able to finish before his passing. More information can be found here.
Dimitrov Art Gallery
The Dimitrov Art Gallery is probably the best known in Dullstroom, thanks to its charismatic and greatly talented owner, Branko Dimitrov. The Yugoslavian artist attracts crowds from all over the usually quiet town, by painting portraits on the verandah outside of his gallery. Inside you will also be able to see a striking collection of paintings.
