Welcome to Thomarts Gallery

Thomarts Gallery is an artist owned visual, contemporary art gallery occupying a unique niche within the contemporary world of art. Thomarts Gallery provides a range of art activities within the sector from strategy development through art workshops that they provide across the rural and urban South Africa, to exhibition, art curating, art consultancy to new art collectors up to providing superior forms of art to an art collectors market.

Thomarts Gallery’s mandate in the business of art is to bring a fresh, artistic, contemporary, innovative and an art-investment service to its art audience. 

Our main goal is to exceed the expectations of every client by offering outstanding customer service,  a professional image, greater value,  a strategic development in re of an art commission with a client and a  career management of fine artists, thus optimizing professional functionality and improving operation efficiency.

We are distinguished by our functional and technical expertise combined with our hands-on experience, thereby ensuring that our clients receive the most effective and professional service. We also operate as agents to the artists we work with and selection of art works to be exhibited goes through stringent measures to cater for our market.

We run art workshops in both rural and urban locations to enhance the techniques of local artists and improve their business skills. In these art workshops we steer the artists to their full potential in the technique and style that they show their strengths in and help them with the following:

•Writing a professional artist’s resume’

•Writing a professional artist’s statement

•Presenting your portfolio professionally

•Using social media

•Doing an artist’s walkabout


As professional dealers in contemporary arts, Thomarts Gallery is involved in every stage upon the client’s needs for art, from implementation of their brief to completion, offering continual, functional, and technical support. Our extensive skills encompass all aspects of implementation and operation including business/art requirement definition, skill empowerment, museum-quality framing, development of specified Marquette and sketches for client approval, overseeing and customizing our products/services to fit specific client needs. We also host our monthly art tours in our gallery in forms of art walkabouts to promote and teach about the work of the artist(s) on show. Every artist wants an audience to admire and talk about their work. The desire for an audience is in fact the main incentive of creating, while the process of creation itself requires a receiver as a natural supplement. We are the bridge that links and connects these individuals and groups together.
