Quality African artifacts
Feb 2020
Don’t let the name put you off. Gallery Antenna was started 50 years by the current owner’s father who was a salesman for 3M throughout West Africa. He was self-trained and had an excellent eye . The collection is extensive, organized by country/tribe and each piece is documented with its provenance and history. Excellent prices too!

Also have paintings but they are new.

A haven for collectors - not bargain hunters
Apr 2019 • Business
This isn't a typical "tourist" shop. They have sculpture from all over Africa; high end textiles and paintings. A few lower-cost touristy items, but I think they cater to people who really know the art of the region and are looking for good and authentic examples.

Best African art in all of Africa
Mar 2019 • Couples
I have been in many shops in Africa selling masks, heads, doors etc. Never have I seen such an extensive collection. Very reasonable prices. They ship to US. Even if you do not buy you must visit. A real treasure.

VERY WONDERFUL STORE
Oct 2018 • Friends
This store is better than a museum for what it sells: Tribal wood carvings. Every thing is labelled as to age and tribe it came from and the quality is excellent. The stock includes masks, statues and everyday house hold articles. The coverage includes a very large number of tribes. And they ship! Which is important because commercial shippers are hard to get to here in Dakar. For serious collectors its worth the flights to Dakar and being there you can go to Goree Island and see where they got natives ready for shipment as slaves fpr the Western Hemisphere a grim thing but part of history.

Great cross section of pan African art
Jun 2016 • Couples
A very nice gallery of contemporary and antique art primarily from Mali, Cameroon, Ghana, and Nigeria. Some really nice finds from other places such as Congo and Niger as well. Very reasonable prices for such nice stuff. The staff was very welcoming and knowledgeable as well. Must see when you visit Dakar.

Bonjour. Permettez-nous de vous répondre sur votre avis. En effet en juillet 2015, nous étions dans une période très difficile car le fondateur de la Galerie, Monsieur Claude EVERLE venait juste de décéder. Excusez-nous pour notre manquement à votre égard. Merci. Au plaisir de vous revoir. JLC

Fantastic collection!
May 2015 • Solo
Galerie Antenna has a fantastic collection of African art -- mostly from western African countries. The staff is superbly knowledgeable in the objects and I learned a lot about African history of art from him during my visit. Nearly all items are for sale, so you can purchase them if interested.

Piece of art hidden in some street of Dakar
Mar 2014 • Solo
Near major hotels, I got this gallery by mistake as this located in one of the back streets in Dakar. The exhibition is very interesting and most pieces are from other parts of the African continent. Very well presentable and great art works.
