National recognition for Guruve’s artists at NAMA yet again!

2nd December 2017

We are delighted that Rufaro Murenza was selected as a finalist in Zimbabwe’s prestigious National Arts Merit Awards. This is the fourth consecutive year that Rufaro has been shortlisted for the 3D visual arts category of NAMA.

A huge well done, Rufaro, and our commiserations on the controversial decision on the night!

Shona sculpture 'Single Sight' by Bernard Takawira - front

Bernard’s approach to sculpture was very typical of Shona sculpture as an art movement – he perceived the subject or form within the stone and, by removing the superfluous stone, he was able to liberate the sculpture within.
