This location is under the covered walkway of the Ethiopian National Theatre and about a hundred meter away from the National Café & Restaurant. The Gallery does not provide for a permanent exhibition, it is rather a place, which can be rented by groups and/or entities for a period of time, say, weeks or months. When I went there, I was lucky to meet the architecture students of the ‘Unity University’, who opened for their annual ‘Architectural Exhibition’ from 18-21 October 2018. The ‘Unity University’ is the first privately owned institute of higher learning to be awarded full-fledged university status in Ethiopia by the Ministry of Education founded 1991 by Dr. Fisseha Eshetu. It is also the first private university in the country to offer postgraduate programs leading to master’s degree in business administration (MBA) and development economics. The architecture students from 1st-5th grade have displayed several of their project designs, both individual building complex' and urban planning designs, as well as drawings and paintings. Two [2] of the young students who were present, in this case two female students, have masterfully explained their project designs and their thinking behind, very impressive indeed. There is hope that some of these students make their professional journey to become mindful professionals, e.g. to assist the authorities in an improved Addis Ababa City Urban planning and upgrade of the great number of ongoing seemingly haphazard building and infrastructure design and construction. However, visitors may get information from the respective sources to find out in advance about specific events and/or exhibitions within the premises of the 'National Art Gallery'.

Visited the National Theatre Art Gallery in downtown Addis Ababa during my recent trip. Worth visiting when there is an exhibition going on.

Hi please don't consider this as art gallery. It is a place where some artists rent temporarily may be for a week to exhibit their canvas drawing. Because it is very small, the stairs that goes to up floor seems a pole. check the upstairs after you finish the first floor ....you may be unlucky to see drawings as some times upstairs is empty floor. They should make it advertised. because of its proximity to the Ras hotel and main city center you may be benefited if you exhibit your arts there also.
