Imbizo Gallery in Ballito, Umhlanga & Hoedspruit present a large selection of artworks from top S.A painters and sculptors. Imbizo Galleries also showcase selected glass, art, ceramics and individually handmade jewellery.
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 - Hoedspruit, 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.
It has been the dream of Isabel Roos, Imbizo’s owner, living in Westbrook - KZN, to establish a top end quality gallery on north coast.
Imbizo is the Zulu word for “gathering and coming together” and that is what I wanted the Imbizo gallery to be - 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.
Isabel, who holds a PhD in Phytobacteriology, spent her early years working in science but her heart has always belonged to the arts. “One of my earliest desires was to curate my own gallery, a space which I could fill with inspiring and innovative designs.” She did just that. After honing her knowledge in the industry at her first gallery in Stellenbosch, Isabel then moved and opened up Imbizo Gallery in Ballito Bay. Two sister braches followed, Imbizo Gallery Hoedspruit in the Kamogelo Tourism Centre and Imbizo Gallery in The Pearls of Umhlanga, 6 Lagoon Drive.
“I was born for this! ” She laughs, “I revel in the position of being able to provide quality, original artworks to private and corporate clients. I adore helping to place pieces which reflect the personal style, taste and ethos of the specific company or individual. I truly believe that art is an expression of ourselves.”
