Karimba gives crafters a platform

Peter Kiramba, owner of Munene Art Gallery in the Kamogelo Tourism Centre and patron of the arts, gives many local artists and crafters a platform to sell their creations.

He opened another gallery in the new Karongo House on Zandspruit Boulevard on June 1. “I have survived Covid-19 and have now assembled a big base of local artists, of which many can carve a living from selling their work in the galleries.”

He says it is fulfilling to experience the appreciation of tourists and residents knowing that every cent they spend goes back to the community. “I would like to thank the lodges that have chosen to buy our products and recommend their guests to visit our gallery for shopping.

“The product range at our new outlet includes original traditional African art, art prints, and more exclusive and bespoke décor pieces,” he adds. Kiramba invites artists and crafters to reach out to him. “There’s always space for one more.

Since we live in a conservation area, work created from recycled material is popular. “Our dream is to become renowned in the arts and crafts world and create a sustainable economic environment for everyone in the art industry,” he concludes.
