Sculpture garden at Harare’s new Shona Sculpture Gallery

Guruve’s sister gallery, the Shona Sculpture Gallery, finally opened its gates to the public in March 2016 after three years of preparation. With a delightful sculpture garden and a Spanish-style verandah for smaller works, we are already getting great reviews on TripAdvisor. A much-needed positive development for the art movement and artists on the ground in Zimbabwe!

SSG is located at 20 Airport Road so it’s easy to find if you’re ever passing through Harare, Zimbabwe, and we look forward to welcoming you!

In response to harsh economic conditions, Newman returned to Chegutu in 2008 to become a farmer, and is making a successful living as part of ZANU’s policy of returning farmland to black Zimbabweans. We hope Newman will continue to find time to sculpt as well, as it would be a great shame to lose this tremendous talent.
