“truly, a breath of fresh air”

Omen Art Gallery-Art Shop
Ranked #46 of 82 things to do in Chania Town
Attraction details
Reviewed 24 March 2014

The gallery is a must visit for anyone interested in arts and culture. The owners, besides selling some beautiful artwork by local artists, also are experts on the art and cultural scene of Chania. They are both very knowledgeable and true gentlemen. This place, besides the beauty of its art, can provide you with an insight to the soul and spirit of this historic and unforgettable town.

In an otherwise gorgeous old town infested with tourist traps, kitschy souvenir shops, and "arts & crafts" of at questionable taste and authenticity, this unassuming and welcoming art gallery stands out. Too bad I didn't discover it earlier on during my visit! The owners have really not cut any corners—this is art by some of the finest contemporary Greek artists, expertly curated, properly exhibited, and available for sale at (mostly) very reasonable (and sometimes surprisingly low) prices. They also ship worldwide and, I must say, know how to package fragile objects *well* (obsessively well, actually, but I shouldn't complain about packaging if they err on the side of caution). Well worth an extended visit—be sure to chat with the charming and knowledgeable owners.

Located in one of the most vivid roads of the old town of Chania - Crete, Omen Art Gallery has a unique taste in contemporary art items, including paintings, ceramics, sculptures and many many more! It hosts many modern Greek artists' work, carefully and tastefully selected by its fully art-specialized and most friendly owners, Nikos and Fotis, always willing to guide you through and offer you an uplifting shot of raki!!!
The interesting thing about this gallery is that is a shop in the same time, meaning a visitor can also acquire any of the exhibits! The prices are very reasonable and can vary depending on how much one is willing to pay for an exceptional art item, ranging from pocket to large size.
Either for a present, a souvenir, for avid art collectors or just for an aesthetic satisfaction, Omen Art Gallery is a must visit spot in your roundabouts in the beautiful old town of Chania...

Situated next to the harbor. A different atmosphere comparing to other that is situated in town. Open till late night as many people walk around at the harbor.
