William Humphreys Art Gallery, Kimberley
Situated in the Diamond City's Civic Centre, the WHAG is considered one of the finest art museums in South Africa.
Our art collection varies from Old Master Drawings and Prints and 17th century paintings to contemporary works of art in all mediums. We have a great ceramics collection, sculptures, works of art on paper and many paintings. At present the Art Gallery concentrates on collecting South African works of art. Apart from its primary function as a museum of art, this Gallery serves the community as an educational and cultural centre. Its activities include temporary exhibitions, art workshops mainly for children, development stimulation classes for pre-school children, craft workshops for unemployed women, lectures, video shows and concerts.
We also have a successful outreach programme in which we take graphic exhibitions to the small towns of the Northern Cape province where learners are exposed to world of art. Guided tours are arranged on request.
