Bringing together a group of individuals with an accumulated 50 years experience in the auction industry, Omni Fine Art Auctioneers opened its doors to the public in 2017. Situated in the leafy suburb of Newlands, Cape Town; Gary, Karen and Shona look forward to welcoming both established and aspiring collectors to this exciting venture.
This newly created enterprise consists of passionate, enthusiastic and experienced individuals who look forward to engaging with clients on a one to one basis within a warm and welcoming environment. Covering a wide range of departments including paintings, decorative arts, ceramics, carpets, jewellery and objects d’art, their specialists aim to utilise their skills to facilitate the auction process as well as offer valuations, advice and private treaty sales.
A derivative of the Latin omnis, meaning ‘all encompassing’, Omni aims to provide a space where all are welcome. Their ambition is to grow into a prime institution that provides both buyers and sellers with a platform from which to access the exhilarating realms of decorative and fine arts through the channels of auctioneering. The energetic team will be offering catalogued auctions monthly that will provide clients the opportunity to sell goods timeously. This will also allow buyers, collectors, interior designers and investors to access top quality items frequently. Added to this will be a seasonal quarterly premium catalogue auction, which will include a variety of higher end items from different genres, derived from all four corners of the world. These premium auctions will be the highlights on the Omni annual calendar. All auctions will be available live, on-line for ease of bidding and provide an alternative to the traditional methods.
Omni does not intend to solely be a traditional auction house but as their name implies, they will be offering a variety of services such as a permanent gallery on site, which will host exhibitions of both established and new artists, from both local and abroad. Added to this will be an array of lectures and events, both educational as well as entertaining.
Omni aims to provide Cape Town and the rest of South Africa with a unique and vibrant establishment and to become a vital component of Cape Town’s event calendar.
