Nel Gallery is centrally located on the corner of Long and Church Streets in Cape Town. It is owned and directed by artist Luan Nel alongside his partner and spouse Neil Pendock. The gallery usually has an ongoing group hang of mostly local artists, but also artists from the rest of the country and further afield. In addition to the group hang they host solo and two-person exhibitions at regular intervals throughout the year.
The gallery is open during regular gallery hours and adheres to COVID-19 regulations. Please wear a mask, sanitise your hands upon entry and always practice social distancing.
“I have made these sweet neon pink works for you as well as a neon pink tapestry because life is such a mess for all of us and I want to make it nice, to make things nice in Xhosa it is to Mandisa but nobody uses that word anymore. It’s also my cousins first name, who is basically my role model. Mandisa my cousin was born after my grandfather died. And was called that to make the household happy after the hero (father) died. All my life I looked up to her because as a little girl she seemed more protected than me. But it’s a paradox of hiding behind the bad for the good.”
Cheryl Traub-Adler's exhibition of recent painting ‘Elementals & Incidentals’ opens from 5pm, with Opera Bass singer Reuben Mbonambi singing an aria from The Magic Flute at 7pm. His voice should ring from Church Street, we welcome you to come into the gallery and hear him sing about the changing world's initiation.
