Art Gallery


Mel’s Place Art Gallery is dedicated to celebrating South Africa’s visual art scene. Staying true to our goal of honoring art in all it’s different forms, the environment is created for local and international art-lovers – and offers a special cultural experience in Plettenberg Bay.

The gallery showcases a variety of exceptional artworks by local artists, hosts art exhibitions, educational workshops, cultural events, as well as our soon-to-be-famous Market of The Arts on Saturday’s.

The Passion

The Art Gallery is directed and curated by three time international award winning artist, Tracey Mae.

She has long been an avid supporter the local art scene, is the chairperson of the Plettenberg Bay Arts Association, and an active driver of the team that works so hard to make the annual Plettenberg Bay Arts Festival a reality

Mel’s Place extends an open invitation to anyone interested in supporting and appreciating what South African Art has to offer. 

The Art Gallery

Hosting over 200 artworks, the gallery has the largest display of artwork in the area, and is now a fine art attraction not to be missed.

Restaurant seating is available throughout the gallery. The relaxing atmosphere offers the perfect setting for meetings, creative functions, high tea events, or coffee dates. 

In addition to this we also offer art lessons, demonstrations, as well as paint and sip evenings – which attract both local and international guests.

To Come...

In the future, we will continue to diversify and grow the art scene and -community in Plettenberg Bay.

The goal is to create a space for art lovers and artists alike, where art can be celebrated and appreciated together.

Our next project involves hosting an outdoor market with special focus on arts, crafts, and culture.  Thus far, “The Market of The Arts” will be held on twice a month on Saturday’s, and is guaranteed to become a major attraction and weekend activity for all.
