Contemporary fine art gallery and art consultants, Lizamore & Associates, prides themselves in showcasing the very best contemporary art from emerging and established South African artists. The Lizamore & Associates team is lead by acclaimed gallerist, Teresa Lizamore.
Over the past 31 years, Lizamore has developed a sound career in the industry, as an art consultant, curator and gallerist. She served as the curator for the Sasol art collection between 1982 and 2009, building the collection to over 2000 pieces of contemporary South African art. This collection is recognised as one of the premier collections of contemporary South African art. Currently serving as advisor and curator to Rand Merchant Bank, she manages their collection of approximately 1500 works. During her career she has worked on several other corporate collections and projects including Telkom, Development Bank of South Africa, ATKV, The Brett Kebble Art Award, and McKinsey Incorporated.
Lizamore started Artspace Gallery, in Fairland in Johannesburg in 2001 and moved to the Rosebank Artstrip in 2008. In 2013, Artspace changed their name to Lizamore and Associates. Lizamore & Associates continues to promote the works of new and emerging artists whilst focusing on developing long-term relationships with these artists. The gallery takes the view that by showing a considered combination of exhibitions of the work of more established names, as well as carefully selected emerging new voices, the gallery can promote new prospects to collectors, while still serving the growing market of buyers who look for the sound investment opportunities presented by more known artists.
Artists who have exhibited with Lizamore in the past are amongst others: Richard Smith, Wilma Cruise, Mbongeni Buthelezi, Collen Maswanganyi, Johannes Maswanganyi, Benon Lutaaya, Susan Woolf, Colbert Mashile, Marco Cianfanelli, Stefanus Rademeyer, Lehlogonolo Mashaba, Karin Preller, Jaco Sieberhagen and Angus Taylor.
