Time: 6pm

Exhibition Dates: October 5-7, 2012
Time: 10am-6.30pm
Contacts: 0722 521870 or

Peter Elungat needs little introduction. He is currently the one of the best selling artists domestically. In this exhibition, the canvases retain their charming medieval quality though the backgrounds have taken on a more pastel palette. As ever his canvases grow in size in tandem with the increasing appetite for them amongst the art buying public in Kenya.
