The KZNSA is an independent member-based society where members elect the governing body, that is, the Council, in our AGM. Council is comprised of up to 12 members who contribute to the governance, strategies, and vision of the organisation. The Exhibition Sub-Committee, along with the Gallery Director, oversee the exhibition and education programme and the selection of exhibitions in the gallery. Council members for 2021/2022 are Marc Kalina (President), Vulane Mthembu (Vice-President), Bruce Robertson (Treasurer), Andile Madondo (Secretary), Jo Voysey (Chair Exhibition Sub-Committee), Nhlanhla Khuluse, Mayo Ndlovu, Greer Valley, Steve Kotze, Dane Knudsen and Menzi Mhlongo.

The operations team is headed by Angela Shaw as Executive Director. Shaw oversees the direction of the organisation and the management of the Gallery and Shop. Of the three trading divisions – Gallery, Shop, and Café - turnover generated in the Cafe and Shop contribute to the overheads of the Gallery. When funding is accessible, the Gallery implements artist support and art education projects.
