A superb gallery with its own sandy beach! Great art, so much to look at and choose from. A very stylish cafe-bar. Friendly staff. Some proceeds support a children's charity. Definitely worth visiting. Free to view but donations accepted and worth making.
David, the proprietor, is friendly and engaging. The gallery showcases dozens of pieces in varying styles and price points and pledges to donate 40% toward a good cause. You can also enjoy the cafe in front and a beachy scene in back!
Such a lovely gallery with unique paintings. I like how donations are been made from sales. Entry is completely free. This is a must visit while in Rwanda
Entry at Niyo Arts Gallery is FREE. Every purchase you make some percentage goes back to support the 120 need children in a program by the Gallery Founder. There are also some very nice art work. I bought myself some. You can actually contact the gallery from their socials or website in case you need to know something. I also believe they have the traditional dance happening on either from Thursday. In case I go there again I will confirm this and update accordingly. When in Kigali don't fail to go to this place. Taking of photos is allowed.
It’s got a different vibe from other art galleries. There’s such a clean feeling with the paintings. The entrance is designed with paint on the walls and floor. It’s just beautiful to step into a different world of art
