Over the last 17 years, Gallery 2 (previously known as Gallery on the Square) has established itself as one of South Africaâ€™s leading fine art galleries. Built on a strong affection for the arts, it strives to promote a cross-section of both established and emerging contemporary South African artists across a variety of disciplines, as well as supporting various local development projects.
In May 2010, the gallery relocated to what has become known as the â€śArt Stripâ€ť on Jan Smuts avenue in Parkwood, Johannesburg. Rebranded as Gallery 2, it continues to draw on the ever-present talent and energy of South Africaâ€™s visual artists, finding its niche within the South African art market, as well as providing an environment that is enjoyed and supported by artists, private and corporate patrons alike.
Gallery 2 looks to mediate between formalist ideals and the theoretical artistic discourse of contemporary art. It is our goal to promote a re-appreciation of not only the aesthetic but also a return to the essence of production in art as well as any conceptual discourse that the work may signify.
