Reflections of Africa Art Gallery in the quaint town of White River, South Africa, is quite contrarily, a warm and welcoming space.
Set in the eclectic Casterbridge Lifestyle Centre, the exposed beams and organic natural light complement the art on the walls to entice an instant love-affair for anyone intrigued by visual stimulation, and the vast windows ensure that the breath-taking outside is just an extension of the gallery space.
Owner, Coleen Williams, is a multifaceted artist and works from her in-gallery studio, pausing only to share her infectious passion for art with anyone who walks through the door.
The walls showcase a fine collection of Coleen’s own work, and the space is shared with pieces that Coleen personally hand-picks from a select few local artists. Each piece is created in miscellaneous mediums and of diverse subjects, yet they all share one common quality: sensational artworks that are in their very essence, reflections of her beautiful Africa.
We would love you to pop in personally to feel the space and breathe in the infinite gallery air.
The gallery space is sanitized regularly throughout the day and visitors to the gallery are requested to keep their masks on while browsing, so you stay safe, as do we!
Meet the Artists
Aside from loving bright colours and her four huskies, Coleen is also a keen photographer, graphic designer and quite the inventor! Her art portfolio graphically mirrors her myriad of interests.
In the spirit of love local, Coleen supports talented artists from around the area, which the Lowveld has in abundance. Alongside her own work on the walls, are art pieces she personally hand-picked. Like her own work, the art pieces are a wide selection of styles, subjects and mediums and all original artwork and prints are available both online and in studio.
FINE ART PRINTS
The print collection includes Archival Limited Edition Prints, Open Edition Prints and Photographic Prints from a select few local artists.
Reflections of Africa Art Gallery is not only an exquisite showcase of local art and working studio of owner and artist Coleen Williams, but also a place from where she pours her heart into growing the Art Supply Offering which is very limited in the area. As an experienced artist with a passion for every medium, from watercolour to pastel and pencils, she is able to offer valuable advice and support on art supplies. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, Coleen will find it for you.
Quality products from a variety of brands are available in the Gallery.

Coleen’s insatiable love for art and people inspired her to present art workshops. She now regularly hosts workshops of every kind – from fun art-for-dummies beginner classes in various mediums, to focused workshops for more advanced artists in specific skills or techniques. Workshops are interesting and interactive; being able and creative is entirely optional and inhibition is absolutely prohibited!
She has no problem sharing the stage and on occasion, invites another artist to co-host workshops with her.
