Everard Read, the oldest commercial art gallery on the African continent, was established in 1913. Everard Read and its sister gallery Circa have two contemporary art galleries in Johannesburg and Cape Town respectively, and one in London.


Its sixth gallery, Everard Read Franschhoek, in partnership with Leeu Collection, is a considered space showing the best modern and contemporary artworks by southern African artists. Adjacent to Le Quartier Français, the gallery includes a sculpture garden for monumental works interspersed with herbs and vegetables, the first of its kind in South Africa. The fresh produce from the garden features on the menus of the Leeu Collection’s restaurants.

Address: 20 Huguenot Road, Franschhoek

Everard Read’s newest gallery at Leeu Estates in Franschhoek augments the existing gallery in the high street of Franschhoek, next to Le Quartier Français. The focus will be on showing monumental sculpture in the breathtaking fynbos and vineyards of Leeu Estates, as well as exhibiting important works by our artists in the purpose-built gallery on site. The Fynbosch quarter, where the new gallery is located on the farm, was designed by DHK architects, who also designed the Norval Foundation. The gallery benefits from their experience garnered there, with understated but immaculate finishes that show the art to its best advantage, while offering glimpses of the spectacular natural environment that surrounds Leeu Estates.

Wednesdays to Sundays 10h00 – 16h00, or by appointment.
