I read about the gallery in a travel book prior to going to Ethiopia, and I'm so glad that I took the time to visit. They have an absolutely beautiful collection of original art and antiques that are displayed in stunning fashion. The gallery is huge, and it's easy to spend a long time there just viewing all of the... More

Lovely items and well made but out of our price range. However it was nice to see high quality local items and some good art. Gave us some good ideas about what to look for in local items

i wish i was in need of the ethiopian traditional furniture created with modern touch and in high quality - this is the place! Also offers quite average paintings selection, has interesting pieces of semi-precious jewellry and great choice of smaller decor items (baskets, boxes, headstools, etc). At least worth a look as collection is put together with great taste!... More

My top two shopping recommendations in Addis are Salem's Ethiopia and St. George Gallery. Do try to hit both if you can. My husband especially enjoyed the solid and authentic furniture of the St. George Gallery. Everything is artfully displayed. While I enjoyed looking at the paintings, crosses and knick backs, I loved perusing the jewelry. I found the manager/owner... More

The Gallery is located close to the Sheraton Hotel. The artwork, crafts and textiles- cotton and silk- are all original and well priced. The staff is very warm especially the manager. The pieces of interior decoration are unique. I didn't find pieces like these anywhere else in Ethiopia. The gallery accepts credit cards

This is my favorite place in all of Ethiopia to visit to purchase crafts and textiles from while enjoying the amazing collection of art produced by some of Ethiopias most established artist. I found myself returning to the gallery several times during my stay in Ethiopia as I fell in love with the wide array of scarves and goat skin... More

This gallery is special. It has beautiful paintings, both classical Ethiopian style and modern, as well as textiles, framed crosses, items from the tribes... Definitely worth visiting. You might want to visit both before the rest of your trip and after to compare what you find on the trip. We didn't find most of the things anywhere else in Ethiopia.
