‘The Loom at 50’, celebrating the best of Ghanaian artists

The Loom Art Gallery, reputed as Ghana’s premier privately owned art gallery, located in Samlotte House, Kwame Nkrumah Avenue, Accra is celebrating its Golden Jubilee.

As part of the activities, The Loom is holding an exhibition of works of renowned Ghanaian Artists today, according to the gallery owner Mrs Frances Ademola.

The works of a renowned artist, Larry Otoo, Gabriel Eklou Adjei Sowah, Samuel Agbenyegah, Emmanuel Quartey-Papafio, Seth Clottey and Aubrey-Seth Attoh would be featured at the iconic art gallery.

Art lovers from all walks of life are expected to converge and patronise the works of the gifted Ghanaian artists.

The gallery started as a small art shop on the ground floor of an allegedly haunted house at Kwame Nkrumah Circle.

Incidentally, that “haunted house” is now the location of the GCB Bank, Circle Branch, Mrs Ademola said.

Samlotte House itself has a fittingly creative background. It was designed in the early 1970s by the famous architect, Kenneth Scott, and the interior too, attracts attention owing to its fascinating, artistic design.

The building houses the gallery and two floors of offices. SAMLOTTE is a combination of ‘Samuel’ and ‘Charlotte’, the first names of Mrs Ademola’s parents.

There are many more artists scheduled to have their works exhibited as part of the grand finale of the Golden Jubilee Anniversary.
