About
There is no better person than Margaretta to bear witness to the exponential growth in the credibility and the creativity of Kenyan visual artists, from the first post-independent art gallery (PaayaPaa) to the current networks of high value Kenyan artists.

In this exhibition, Margaretta brings together a selection of artists from different art networks who have contributed to the evolution of Kenyan visual arts and who continue to display the characteristics of Kenyan entrepreneurial spirit: innovative, adaptable, inventive and original, playing their part in the effervescence of the Kenyan visual arts sector.

Artists include: Ancent Soi, Jak Katarikawe, Mary Collis, Kioko Mwitiki, Shine Tani, Patrick Mukabi, Maggie Otieno, Gakunju Kaigwa, Dennis Muragori, Cyrus Nganga, Nani Croze and other.
