The APS Gallery showcases the work of students and graduates, as well as other APS-affiliated printmakers, by exhibiting and promoting prints and offering opportunities for emerging artists to market their work. The curators and gallery staff offer tours of the studio and the Gallery, enabling visitors to experience the vibrancy and energy of APS as well as to engage with a range of artists, teachers, and printmakers.
APS Gallery holds regular exhibitions and members of the public are always welcome. These may be solo or group exhibitions such as our opening one of 2009 showing work by several artists who have printed in the Pro-Print Studio and including two of our artist/print technicians, Pontsho Sikhosana and Motsamai Thabane.
A highlight of each year is our third-year student exhibition held annually in November to showcase the exceptional portfolios of our graduating students. An investment in emerging young artists today is both financially and socially rewarding. Collecting their prints helps to promote their careers in South Africa, and offers opportunities for collectors to obtain their work while it is still affordable and before they gain international recognition.
Works on paper can be purchased from our Gallery exhibitions and print drawers at affordable prices. Up-and-coming young artists are profiled on the APS website where examples of their work can be viewed.
The Gallery is open Tuesday to Friday, 9h00 to 16h00,
and Saturday, 10h00 to 15h00 and closed on Mondays for administrative purposes.
