The William Humphreys Art Gallery is located in Kimberley, the capital of South Africa's largest province, the Northern Cape, characterised by vast areas of semi-desert. Situated in Kimberley's Civic Centre, the Gallery was opened in 1952 and named after its principal benefactor, William Benbow Humphreys (1889 - 1965).

Its activities include temporary exhibitions, art workshops mainly for children, development stimulation classes for pre-school children, craft workshops for unemployed women, lectures, video shows and concerts. It also has an outreach programme which involves exhibitions that travel to small towns in the Northern Cape where learners are exposed to world of art.
