A visit to the One Off Gallery

A visit to the One Off Gallery

Last week my good friend and Art Curator, Azza Satti took me to the One Off Gallery in Rosslyn. We drove through a well manicured compound and turned onto a thickly forested road covered by a beautiful canopy of trees that led to the front gate. The askari opened the gate, we parked the car and walked down a stone pathway, passing horses and geese until we arrived at the gallery where we were greeted by the owner Carol Lees and her friendly pack of dogs. Carol, a delightful lady with a deep appreciation for and knowledge of Kenyan art, treated us to tea and illuminated the history of the Kenyan art scene over the last 20 years. Most of the work below is currently on exhibit at the gallery which is open to the public  Tues. – Sun: 11:00 am – 5:00 pm. I’m told that it’s great to visit on saturday when Carol treats guests to tea and snacks. Visit the site for details.
