This gallery has a variety of beautiful work in different mediums. Niko is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about Greek art and typifies the regions hospitality. It was just wonderful getting to know him and learning from him. We ended up getting a couple of pieces including a sculpture of an olive tree that we treasure. Euxaristoume Niko!

Beautiful Art, lovely well-lit space in a good location and run by Nikos, a very very nice man, who gave time to talk about the art.

When we came in to ask a question, got great help from man behind desk who I assume is the owner. Loved the art quirk of the collection. Near to the market, give it a whirl!

The gallery is a must visit for anyone interested in arts and culture. The owners, besides selling some beautiful artwork by local artists, also are experts on the art and cultural scene of Chania. They are both very knowledgeable and true gentlemen. This place, besides the beauty of its art, can provide you with an insight to the soul and... More

In an otherwise gorgeous old town infested with tourist traps, kitschy souvenir shops, and "arts & crafts" of at questionable taste and authenticity, this unassuming and welcoming art gallery stands out. Too bad I didn't discover it earlier on during my visit! The owners have really not cut any corners—this is art by some of the finest contemporary Greek artists,... More

Located in one of the most vivid roads of the old town of Chania - Crete, Omen Art Gallery has a unique taste in contemporary art items, including paintings, ceramics, sculptures and many many more! It hosts many modern Greek artists' work, carefully and tastefully selected by its fully art-specialized and most friendly owners, Nikos and Fotis, always willing to... More

Situated next to the harbor. A different atmosphere comparing to other that is situated in town. Open till late night as many people walk around at the harbor.
