About Rust-en-Vrede Art Gallery

A visit to the Rust-en-Vrede Art Gallery in Durbanville is well worth the journey to see works of art by established and emerging South African artists.

The Rust-en-Vrede building built in the 1840s has quite a history and was originally used as a prison and police headquarters, then a magistrate’s court. The building was developed into four semi-detached houses in 1927, then the municipality purchased the property in 1978 and started restoring the building after which the council and cultural society began using Rust-en-Vrede as an arts and cultural centre. The gallery complex also houses a clay museum, various art studios and the Gallery café. The clay museum offers 90 small ceramic pieces by various potters, which may be bought by visitors as souvenirs.

Rest your wary legs in the Gallery café which specialises in light meals with a Mediterranean flair, served in the dappled shade of the courtyard during summer or in front of a log fire in winter. Meals are accompanied by wines from the Durbanville region, which may be tasted before purchase. Its best to book in advance as seating is limited.
