"We believe Art feeds the soul, Art helps us connect with others, and helps makes you feel in relation to the world."
Our aim is to connect artists and collectors in an authentic way, regardless of whether they are new to collecting, experienced, or simply enthusiastic. At VRG we believe Art feeds the soul, Art helps us connect with others and helps makes you feel in relation to the world. Beulah van Rensburg - Founder ”I have been an artist from a young age so I’ve always had an appreciation for other artists work also. I know what it takes to get to the soul of the work. This crossed over to understanding and loving telling the artist’s story. I love to see peoples honest reaction to an artist’s work. The process in which I get to witness people approach an art work I find to be important. It’s in those first moments that the magic happens. There is a silent dialogue that occurs, they get drawn in deeper and deeper. I try not to get in the way as the possibility of someone falling in love with an artwork. It’s very personal and in these moments I am a matchmaker and the chemistry needs to do the work. Frankly, I think we should all have more art and love in our life.” Sarah Thomas - ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR ”I have a background in interiors and hospitality so I come at everything from this perspective. Let us have a good chat, a glass of something and find out what you like. I am a good mixture of creativity and a people person. So people feel very at home with me in the gallery. We are really down to earth people and want to make sure people find what they are looking for or simply enjoy a visual feast when they come to visit us.” Van Rensburg Galleries was founded on the enterprising spirit of founder Beulah van Rensburg. Frustrated by the constrictive hoops you need to jump through in the art industry that restrict access to the art world for artists, enthusiasts, and would-be collectors. Beulah opened a small gallery space in Hong Kong and started exhibiting in the Affordable Art Fair a growing art scene in 2012, which then began to grow locally and internationally into New York art fairs and a semi permanent pop up space in Nolita, then to a second gallery in Milton, Australia where she found the perfect match in Sarah Thomas the Associate Director. Today we share the mission of supporting what we think is some of the world's most exciting artists. Globally emerging and emerged artists, making their work accessible to the widest possible audience via online, art fairs and our galleries. Ultimately making art a more practical and valuable aspect of our everyday life.Show more Show Less
