ELIZABETH GORDON GALLERY The Elizabeth Gordon Gallery situated in an old Ewardian house in Florida Road is one of KZN’s leading commercial galleries. The Gallery is well stocked with original works by eminent SA artists and is constantly seeking out interesting emerging artists. The Gallery is well known for offering high quality conservation framing and specializes in an exclusive range of custom made hand gilded frames. Restoration of art works by highly trained and experienced restorers is also a speciality.

The Islamic Propagation Centre International (IPCI) was founded in 1957 by the Late Shaikh Ahmed Deedat. He had dedicated more than 40 years of his life presenting Islam, mainly to non-Muslims across the world. He had published over 20 books and distributed millions of copies of these free of charge. Several thousand people have come into the fold of Islam through Allah’s Grace and as a result of these efforts. In a fitting tribute to this achievement, he was awarded the King Faisal International award in 1986, a prestigious recognition of the value of his Dawah efforts in the world of Islam.
