Display your art at Better

Looking for a place that will display your art? If you don’t have galleries beating down your door, its pretty tough. But Better might just be the place for you.

Better is a cowork space that hosts regular events. We are centrally located in Saxonwold in Johannesburg in an old house with a large garden. We have wall space, a flow of people, and parking; you have art. Let’s talk.

We offer three-month contracts to display up to three pieces of work. You get to advertise your price and contact details next to each work. We will also display your bio and business card and make them available to anyone interested in your art. If we make a direct sale, we get 15% commission. You will need to pay for packaging and shipping (if necessary) and insurance (if you want it).

Better is not a gallery, so we can’t promise gallery-like conditions. We do have white walls and reasonable lighting. It’s better in some places than in others. We will choose where to hang the works and try to be fair to everyone. So you may get one piece in a prime position and another in a less ideal position.

We are happy to display a wide range of genres, but we do want to see the work first. Better is a cowork environment and the vibe is light and happy so nothing too dark, violent or otherwise disturbing to the people who work here. We don’t have space for very large works or anything that requires complex installation or lighting.

Sneak previews of Better

We thought you might be interested to see something of Better, so here are a few pictures. Above is the facade of the building.

Better occupies the left side of the building with the reception, lounge, kitchen and studio on the ground floor.

On the top floor we have two rooms that we call the meeting room and the writing room, a bathroom, as well as the use of that lovely veranda.

But that’s not all! We also have the use of the garden, with space to enjoy your tea, hold a meeting or work under the trees.

Do come and visit to see the rest of Better. Click here for directions. We are open weekdays from 9am to 6pm and you can drop in any time for a tour. We have scheduled times to Meet the Dreamers when both Andrew and Judy will be around. We’d like to meet you in person to chat about our plans and yours.
