The African art gallery displays unique works in an original building, selling curiosities and a range of fabulous, eclectic collection of art, antiquities such as ritual masks, bronzes, textiles, Ashanti wooden stools from Ghana, West African jewellery and clothes.

The proprietor imports artwork from various African countries including Mali, Senegal, Nigeria and Ghana.

As you approach the arts complex the first sign of art is the building itself! This is a one-of-a-kind structure with the frontage featuring silver and ochre coloured tubular pillars and decorated black handrails that adorn the centre.

Aside from the divers art collection on display there is also a hairdressing salon and a restaurant called the the YOK Art Cafe.

If you are an African art connoisseur and wish to take home special souvenirs and antiques offering better long-term value than the usual tourist craft purchases from The Gambia, then the African Living Art Centre should be on of you first places to visit.

From the Fajara section of Kairaba Avenue take a right hand turn at the Sabena Junction and go up the Garba Jahumpa Road and go up for about 250 metres. The ALAC arts establishment is situated on the left hand side of the road.

Proprietor: Mr. Suelle Nachif
