After six memorable years at 14 West Quay Road, The Donald Greig Gallery will soon be gracing exciting new premises at 1 Coode Crescent, Port Of Cape Town
The gallery is proud that it will be in close proximity to the V&A Waterfront’s new cultural institution – the highly anticipated Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa; honoured to soon be in the vicinity of both the Historical Grain Silos and in the Ocean Liner Terminal.
The newfound premises will include:
– The Harbour Gallery: Displaying a wide collection of artwork, focusing on sculpture.
– 3D Echo Tech: A company that uses cutting edge technology to accurately scan and scale sculptures; concentrating on large monumental pieces for the African continent. Their biggest sculpture to date is the 9 metre Mandela sculpture overlooking the Union Building Terraces.
– The Bronze Age Foundry: Sculpture Casting Services, owned by the Knight Brothers, will be joining forces with Otto du Plessis’ Bronze Age Foundry, thus making their combined industry the largest bronze-pouring foundry group in Africa – spanning an enormous 1,600 metres squared. Besides casting in bronze, the foundry group will be casting in stainless steel and possibly in various other ferrous metals.
– The Donald Greig Gallery: In a converted ‘Old Port Building’, a state-of-the-art, contemporary New York-style warehouse has been built set up to showcase Donald Greig’s work.
His sculptures range from small to life-size bronzes. To celebrate the opening of the new premises, Donald Greig will be launching some of his latest pieces.
Donald Greig and his team look forward to welcoming you to their momentous new space.
