The gallery is a bit challenging to reach, located in a village outside of the Gigiri area of Nairobi. The main exhibition area is fairly well done, but the remainder of the paintings are stacked like wood in the back and hard to browse. Prices are high, but generally in line with other galleries in the city.

Very much worth a visit for those interested in contemporary art of Kenya, especially painting. This visit is worth combining with beautiful area of tea plantations, just 10 km further out of town, and a tea or meal in the traditional Kentmere Club, with old colonial interiors, fine food and service and very special gardens.

A quaint art gallery that displays some great works of art. They organise regular exhibitions. It makes for a nice day out and taking a drive after the gallery makes a very scenic and worth while experience.

Banana Hill is a great art gallery to the North of the City. It is about 10 minutes away from the Village Market. I first visited this gallery in 2006. I highly recommend it for finding both established and developing Kenyan and other East African artists. This gallery is for those who appreciate contemporary art.
