“Mullers Gallery is the bridge between vision, eye care and art,” explains Peter Muller, “and was established in 2015 to celebrate Mullers 125 th Anniversary in Optometry.”
“Situated on the first floor, it serves a dual purpose as a waiting room area for patients to see our resident optometrist and as patrons of the ‘visual arts,’ we provide a gallery space for all artists, young up-coming and others to both exhibit and sell their work.”
The intention is that the Mullers Gallery makes a valuable contribution to the Cape Town art scene and grows as a popular gallery destination of the First Thursday experience in the City CBD. This is in line with the overall objective of uplifting the precinct of Church Square which is currently in development.
The Mullers Gallery has curated a number of exhibitions from painting, sculpture, illustration to photography. As patrons, this is done at a reduced gallery commission on sales to assist the artists.
The most notable being the SLAVE CALENDAR created by advertising agency Geometry Global in aid of the Iziko Slave Lodge which provides a voice for the descendants of the slaves to tell their remarkable stories.
Partnering with the Russian Embassy and Independent Media, the other is the exhibition of the finalists and winners of the ANDREI STENIN Global Photojournalism Exhibition in 2016, established in honour of Russian photo journalist who was tragically killed on an assignment in the Ukraine a couple of years ago.
The Gallery and our patrons are refreshed and sponsored by our good friends from Stellenbrau Beer and Robinson & Sinclair Wines.
