Kenya: Circle Art Agency Opening Cocktail

Circle Art Agency is the newest entrant into the Kenyan art scene. At an elaborate cocktail party on Thursday night held in Nairobi at Duck House, Lower Kabete, the agency was declared open.

Art lovers who included artists, art collectors and corporate leaders joined in the merrymaking and toasting.

Circle art agency director Danda Jaroljmek said that one of their services is to advise private clients who wish to make individual art purchases, value or disperse existing collections.

"It's quite hard to find art in this town. There is more to discover. We need to increase art collections and conversations with other artists. We are organising a lot of events to know talents that we cherish," she said.

The directors pledged to create avenues to help upcoming artists showcase their works. A Collectors Club will be set up so that artists, curators and art professionals can discuss their work and ideas with Kenyan collectors and enthusiasts.
