Passion for art and an enthusiastic nature inspired Isabel Roos to move from retail art in Stellenbosch to opening up her own gallery, Imbizo, in Ballito. Her undeniable love for all things South African and adoration for simply helping place pieces which reflect personal styles, tastes and ethos are the qualities that have made not only Isabel, but her galleries – Ballito and uMhlanga (The Pearls) – such successes.

The name Imbizo derives from the Zulu word for “gathering and coming together” and that is exactly what Isabel wanted – “a place for people to meet and be part of a community, where they can come and enjoy South African art, a place where they can feed their soul”.

Imbizo not only displays a large selection of works from top S.A. painters and sculptors but also hosts solo and group exhibitions regularly displaying both well-known and emerging artists.

From corporates to individuals, Imbizo Gallery provides a client friendly ambiance and offers a complete experience ranging from rental, sourcing, commissioning, framing, hanging and shipping to all destinations.

Imbizo also works closely with a few selected interior decorators, who acknowledge and understand the importance and influence of art in the daily lives of their clients.

Art Advisory

Imbizo Gallery is pleased to offer art advisory services to both individual and corporate clients. Site visits to homes and offices can be arranged, and the gallery is happy to work with clients to provide art which reflects personal style and taste or captures the ethos of a company or business.

With over 19 years experience and with contacts throughout the art world, the gallery is able to source a wide range of art for every situation. Representing both established and emerging artists, advice can also be given on current market trends.
