Molla’s Art Gallery Molla’s Art Gallery in Rustenburg is owned by Mollie Moolman and opened its doors in March 2008 in Rustenburg, North West, also known as the “Platinum City”. The area oﬀers great cultural and economic diversity from the wildlife and bushveld of the Marico to the largest Platinum mines in the World. Molla’s Art Gallery is proud to be the custodian and mentor of many local artists work, including members of the Rustenburg Visual Arts Association (RAVA). This body is aﬃliated to the South African Association of Visual Arts (SANAVA) and draws its membership from far and wide, enfolding artist from The Marico to the borders of
Botswana. In this way artists can interact locally and internationally. The art reference books owned by the gallery also serve as a library for scholars and artists alike. Molla’s Art Gallery does not only stage exhibitions of local and national artist works, but also hosts weekly workshops in various media and art disciplines. The art shop stock a wide array of art materials and canvasses. Other services are art valuations for various purposes, interior decorating and procurement advice, commissions of art works and portraits, monthly ﬂea market, full time coﬀee shop and small function venue. These provide the gallery with a steady source of income.
Art is very much alive in Rustenburg, here we call it “The creative imperative”. Don’t drive through Rustenburg without making the art stop!

Derek Zietsman Tel: +27 011- 453 - 4908 Cell : 082 787 4707 Email: email@example.com www.art.co.za/derekzietsman The uncertainty and ambiguity of ‘reality’ underpins most of what currently interests me in art making. This work, for example, can be seen as a comment on ‘strong’ taking advantage of the innocent, but can also simply be a grand-dad with his grand-daughter at a Springbok Nude Girls gig? “Truth” is a concept constructed by our opinions, perceptions, parental hegemony, etc - and never simple.

Portrait commissions in Oil
Jonel Scholtz. (left) Sunday Afternoon, (right) Sun through the leaves. My paintings come from a simple life as a mother and wife and develop into all the complicated aspects that make up a soul.
I believe that the canvas does not lie and will be true to what you are and to the making of the true artist. My interiors create domestic scenes in hues conveying intensely subjective and evocative spaces. My figurative work depicts the fragility and femininity of the female form. Painting gives me solace, reason and energy. Together with the ones I love my life is an amazing complete experience. Cel: 0828538621 www.jonelscholtz.co.za
