NAIROBI ART GALLERIES

Explore the local talent with a visit to some of Nairobi’s acclaimed art galleries. Kenya’s capital is a hub for artisanal creativity, from traditional crafts to cutting edge technological innovations.

MATBRONZE ART GALLERY & FOUNDRY

Matbronze Art Gallery & Foundry features a display of over 600 hand cast bronze sculptures by wildlife artist Denis Mathews. From tiny lion cub paw prints to life sized crocodiles, the sculptures are impressive and fascinating to look at in their accurate representation of a diverse range of Kenya’s wildlife. There is also an art gallery exhibiting a selection of local artists and a delightful garden café serving delicious homemade snacks and meals.

CIRCLE ART GALLERY

African art is hitting the global art scene in a big way. The Circle Art Agency is Nairobi’s premier modern art gallery and offers a fantastic outing for collectors and enthusiasts alike. We recommend pre-booking your visit. Avid art enthusiasts can also book a private appointment to visit the gallery if the opening times are unsuitable, although this must be booked in advance and is subject to availability.

GoDOWN ARTS CENTRE

A fun art studio to visit exhibiting a range of artwork in different media from local artists, including fine arts, block print, etching and palette knife painting. There are currently five artists in residence who you can meet, each of whom create, exhibit and sell their work from here. If there is a particular artist you would like to meet, then we recommend you call ahead of time to ensure they’re available during your visit.

TIP

Matbronze Art Gallery is very close to the manor so makes an ideal mid-morning or after-lunch outing when the giraffes are off browsing in the sanctuary. If you are visiting Circle Art Gallery or the GoDown Arts Centre, leave after breakfast to ensure you don’t miss out on any long-legged encounters.
