Art is important because it brings meaning to life and connects people together. It is infact one of the greatest joys in the world. Art is typically defined through expression and applying human creative skill and imagination.
On Wednesday evening, One off Contemporary art Gallery, Rosslyn Riviera Mall, celebrated 25 years of its existence in an evening that saw many artists and art lovers gather to toast and celebrate with them at their gallery.
Under the leadership of Carol Lees, Director and Curator, the gallery aims to represent some of the most established artists in Kenya, many of who they represent exclusively, along with associate artists from Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Sudan and Rwanda.
Over time—25 years, to be exact—she has organized various exhibitions, developing an influential platform for artists at the Gallery.
The celebratory Wednesday show featured works by various artists. “Some of our long-time gallery artists are represented along with some newer names, whose work we hope you will enjoy. More than anything we want to celebrate our artists and our collectors, all those who have supported us through good times and sometimes difficult times. Without you, we would not have grown and flourished. We offer you all our heartfelt thanks and hope we can continue to discover and appreciate great art together, for many more years,” Carol Lees. The exhibition closes 16 June 2019 and its free to attend.
Art reflects humanity and provides a means to process unspeakable joy and unbearable pain. It is an avenue to express what words can’t convey.
