Last week I joined a friend for an art show at the Circle Art Gallery in Lavington. Circle Art Gallery is an art space that showcases local artists from across East Africa. We saw Michael Soi’s show: The Women in My Life. The series is a response to criticism he received in the past as his work had been misconstrued as demeaning to women. It’s intended to celebrate the important women in his life.
Here are a couple pieces from the show.
Pardon the angles. These were taken with my iPhone, with a drink in the other hand.
The show runs from 24 August through 9 September. If you’re in Nairobi, you should pop in to see it. The gallery is open weekdays 10 am to 5pm and Saturdays 12 pm to 5 pm. It’s located at 910 James Gichuru Road in Lavington, not far from the Lavington Mall.
