We exhibited for 4 very enjoyable years at the RBG in Burlington, Ontario in Canada.
With over 100 sculptures on display in the Hendrie Gardens we had thousands of visitors over the exhibition period with 5000 visitors in our opening weekend, launching the latest works from Zimbabwe’s best talent. Some who just enjoyed and others who purchased. Thank you to everyone for making us feel welcome and for supporting us every year.
They receive no public funding and rely exclusively on sculpture sales to keep the business moving forward. There’s a strong sense of pride and excitement when she speaks of how the company started and how they travel worldwide showcasing these beautiful pieces.
Welcome to the new world of African art. Artists and dealers no longer wait for audiences to seek them out at museums or galleries, and instead travel for exhibits and art festivals around the globe.
We were thrilled when the RBG announced earlier this year that ZimSculpt would be returning to the gardens this year. When this beautiful exhibit was here a few years ago I recall spending an enjoyable late summer evening wandering through the gardens and admiring the magnificent pieces of sculpture. These works of art seemed to fit in so easily with the beautiful backdrop of the flowers and plants and I dreamed of having one in my own garden.
Mining the richness of Zimbabwe’s geology, featured artists will create powerful works of art that depict the stories of the natural world and the culture and traditions of their home land.
Once again art and garden lovers alike will be graced with the award-winning Zimbabwean stone sculpture exhibit, ZimSculpt as it has returned to Royal Botanical Gardens.
