The Kim Sacks Gallery was established in 1986. It moved in 1998 to it’s present home in Parkwood. The building has been designed and built in traditional “Adobe” style. What is available at the gallery within a contemporary context is a mixture of rural creativity, fine-craft, cutting edge urban design and folk art.
Kim works with and represents a multitude of Southern African rural and urban crafts people. People who exhibit internationally and who are defined as “Designers” as well as people who make Contemporary products using traditional techniques. For Kim, what matters is their creativity, what emerges from recycling, constructing and redefining form and function, and also what it means to be living in Africa at the current time. All this is what inspires Kim.
