Located inside Kempinski Hotel, Gallery 1957 and at the Galleria Mall across from the Hotel, Gallery 1957 hosts works of contemporary artists. Oliver Okolo had his pieces at the Hotel and Afia Prempeh at the Mall. It is definitely a place to visit

A gem in Accra. A very contemporary gallery with some of the best African artists displaying their work for us all to see. Keep up the great work, Ghana needs more of this.

The gallery is wonderful but really the entire hotel is a gallery. Peter kindly allowed our art and music students from Glendale California to stay for quite a while viewing and discussing art. We will definitely be back. Thank you for providing this wonderful space for W. African art.

if you are in luck, there will be an exhibition in the Gallery and it is worth getting an invitation for first class art from across the continent.
