Award-winning Artist Nike Davies-Okundaye launches The Power Of One Woman

Harmless Dream
Harmless Dream, Nike Davies-Okundaye, 2006

Exciting news!

The Gallery of African Art (GAFRA) will be presenting The Power of One Woman, an exhibition of works by Nigerian artist Chief Nike Davies-Okundaye, featuring pen and ink works, watercolours, jewellery and "Adire" textiles.

The exhibition will provide a body of work from over 40 years of consistent and dedicated practice.

The exhibition is taking place from 10th December 2015 to 6th February 2016.

It will also showcase photographs by Joanna Lipper, whose aim is to reveal dimensions of Nike's multi-faceted identity as a Yoruba Chief, daughter, mother, wife, artist, teacher, and social entrepreneur.

These events always inspire and encourage so I'm looking forward to going. A must for art lovers!
