Omenka Art Gallery
Omenka Art Gallery is a small boutique gallery tucked away in a serene environment of old Ikoyi. It's definitely an art lovers paradise
This post is just for information and letting everyone know that there are other 'not so known' fabulous art galleries in Lagos. One of such art gallery is Omenka Gallery.
Omenka Gallery is a contemporary art gallery in Lagos. I found the space a little different from the others. There is a restaurant on site, facing the atlantic ocean and with views of banana Island.
The gallery was founded in 2003 by Nigerian artist,curator and art administrator Oliver Enwonwu, daughter of Ben Enwonwu who happens to be a renowned international artist.
Shockingly, the day I visited sometime in 2016, there was no light but the gallery manager took me round and explained that an exhibition had just ended. Anyways, while I am unable to bring you pictures of the inside, I am hoping the few below is sufficient to convince you to visit. I actually look forward to returning!.
