The place is small, hard to find, harder to park. Nice art everywhere: on the steps, on the house, on the wall, everywhere! Good art by local artisans. A bit pricey.
I recently had a chance to stop to stop by. Some of the work is remarkable- really talented artists! It was a. It more pricey than I had budgeted for (between $100-$500 USD), but if I were an art collector that would be a great price for the quality.
Six local artists exhibit their art in this enjoyable centre. They also do workshops and teach (kids) classes in the small studio with the breathtaking view.
First of all this centre is open as at October 2016 - the website link on Trip Advisor shows that it has fallen out of use. Some art displayed with a number of paintings propped up against each other and no prices. We found this centre had the greatest variety of the three we visited

Its my hope the artists in Kigali continue to receive local support and international... 更多
