Frances Ademola - Ghana's pioneer art gallery owner


Breaking the silence I bring to you Ghana's pioneer art seller Frances Ademola. The 81 year-old lady has been running The Loom, Ghana's first private art gallery, since she returned home in 1969 after a 12 year sojourn in Nigeria. Being in Ghana these days, I have come to know her and enjoy the weekly visits to her gallery on Kwame Nkrumah Street in Accra where she shares a lot of insight with me on her life, work and Ghana and Nigeria of the past. It's always great learning for me.

Wondering why the site has not been updated? It's because I have had to move to work in Ghana. You can find my Ghana work on accracityphotos.blogspot.com
