Reserving artworks for viewing

There’s no obligation to buy if you reserve something for viewing. We place reserves on pieces on a first-come first-served basis, so please be quick if there’s something you like, to make sure you’re at the front of the queue.

Feel free to express an interest in a piece that’s already been reserved – the viewer may not choose it and you might get it after all!

Pieces will become available for viewing in April and we will prioritise unpacking pieces that have been reserved.

Rotating images on web gallery

We are always seeking to stay one step ahead of our competitors!

Guruve are very excited to announce the launch of a fantastic new element to our online gallery of Shona sculpture…

Rotating sculptures for selected famous artists’ works

For a select few of the most significant artworks on our web gallery, viewers can now see the pieces photographed in studio conditions from every angle!

As the pieces load up, they spin round completely two times; after that, you can use your cursor to rotate in either direction allowing you to see every detail of the sculpture.

Currently, links to all eight rotating pieces are embedded in the banner on the homepage, so just click on the images to take you to the gallery pages.
