Art Galleries

Port Elizabeth is not only a picturesque coastal city with exciting attractions and thrilling activities, but a city that treasures art and culture. With three major art galleries to explore, visitors will be able to discover a world of beauty, through the eyes and imaginations of well known artists.

The Eastern Province Society of Arts and Crafts is often referred to as simply the 'EPSAC' and is a thriving community based gallery, where local artists from all around the Eastern Cape are actively promoted. Established as long ago as 1918, the Eastern Province Society of Arts and Crafts offers regular exhibitions of local South African arts and crafts, together with informative quarterly newsletters.


Formerly known as the King George VI Art Gallery, the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Art Museum was first opened in 1956. Its collections comprise examples of South African art and British art, as well as Oriental art and printmaking from all over the world. The King George VI Art Gallery is home to historical masterpieces that were created in the Eastern Cape and also includes a Gerard Sekoto collection.


The aviator, Ron Belling was one of South Africa's best aviation artists. His legacy includes a vast number of paintings, including 500-odd which have planes as their main subject matter. Many are displayed in this gallery, housed in a beautiful art deco building and designed by the famous South African architect, Gertruida Brinkman.
