September 20-25, 11 - 4 PM
This September, Ukama Gallery brings together two leading lights of the international art world. Against the multicultural backdrop of Vancouver, this meeting will highlight collaboration between artists who are uniquely emblematic of the rich artistic traditions of Canada and Zimbabwe.
Together, Benhura and IceBear will explore themes common to their respective traditions, themes which are more than ever relevant to our increasingly global human experience: community and environment. The artists will share stories, techniques and traditions, with each other and with the eclectic community of visitors to Granville Island. Synthesizing this experience, in the context of their distinct indigenous traditions, the artists will combine their talents to create a “Mother Earth” sculpture - an expression of our joined global community through collective local creativity.
