Kim Sacks Gallery

Danish-trained ceramist Kim Sacks stocks collectable ceramic pieces, produced through artistic collaborations, in her Moorish-styled gallery conveniently located along Parkwood's Art Gallery Row.  Here you'll also find African woven baskets, wood carvings, furniture, textiles and beadwork (look out specifically for irresistible Marigold Beads), items from tribal art to contemporary museum-quality handmade objects that span rural and urban makers.

Kim Sacks, whose has run this extraordinary gallery for close to 30 years, is a local expert on all things African craft and handmade. This is not a store at which to find curios, it is place to encounter the breadth and depth of African artistry and craftsmanship and to discover a world of beautiful objects that carry great traditional significance as well as contemporary pieces such as exquisite and fine porcelain vessels.

Each object carries a history and Kim Sacks and her team are more like tour guides than shopping assistants. The interior of the store is dramatic, and will leave any visitor impressed by its careful curation – an ever-changing display of beautiful things.
