Owner description: Nike Art Centre, Lagos, is one of Nigeria's hidden treasures. Located in Lekki, Lagos, the four-story building compromises of an art gallery and textile museum featuring over 7,000 pieces and soon to have Coffee shop. The Centre has a diverse collection of art by a multitude of artists, celebrating Nigeria's talent, offering visitors an insight into all cultures of Nigeria through the medium of art. It can take up to a full day to discover all the Nike Art Centre has to offer. Fortunately, the gallery is open 7 days a week often holding art exhibitions, workshops and cultural days. If you're feeling creative you can take an art course with Nike or go on one of her week-long retreats outside of Lagos in Osun state (Osogbo), Kogi state (Ogidi) and Abuja, all of which you can visit with 'Nike Tours'. The tours offer overnight accommodation at her guesthouses, and partake in creating traditional African crafts such as adire, batik, indigo, beadwork, painting, or carving. Nike Art Centre is an impressive gallery and a must for art lovers.

The gallery is full of beautiful paintings, photos, woodwork, furniture, jewelry, etc. I visited twice and still did not see everything! All of the work is beautiful, but my favorite artist is Joseph Eze. Check out his work and you may undertand my fascination.

The people are amazing, too; especially my new Auntie Nike! They are all friendly and knowlegable, and they do not hover as you enjoy the art. I was fortunate enough to visit while Nigeria was playing (and won) a World Cup match and Auntie Nike allowed us to join her to watch. It really felt like I was visiting her at home.

I highly recommend that you visit this gallery and I encourage you to visit the gift shop as it has many beautiful treasures. If you plan ahead of time, arts and crafts can be arranged for you and your group, too.

If you are not convinced yet, then maybe I should let you know that admission is free. The planned arts and crafts costs a nominal fee, but vieiwng the marvelous artwork only costs you a smile. Why not stop by and see what I am raving about? I know that I will go back when I visit Lagos again.

The relationship of the owners with visitors makes the visitors feel at home. The subject of the art collections are vast. It is a cultural place you will like to bring your guests to again and again.
