Galleries in South Africa
An art gallery or art museum is a
building or space for the exhibition of art, usually visual art. Museums can be
public or private, but what distinguishes a museum is the ownership of a
collection. Paintings are the most commonly displayed art objects; however,
sculpture, decorative arts, furniture, textiles, costume, drawings, pastels,
watercolours, collages, prints, artists' books, photographs, and installation
art are also regularly shown.
