The Shona Sculpture Gallery: An Oasis of African Modern Art
Located just minutes from the airport, the Shona Sculpture Gallery is a calm oasis specializing in the finest Shona sculpture. The gallery is set in a beautiful garden, showcasing works by contemporary African sculptors along with well-known names in the African Modern Art movement.
In Harare, the Shona Sculpture Gallery houses one of the best selections of modern African art sculptures, with works from both modern and first-generation sculptors. While the prices might be higher compared to roadside stalls or the sculptors' own homes/workshops, the gallery provides the unique opportunity to appreciate high-quality works from multiple top sculptors in one location. The pieces are beautifully displayed in a serene garden and indoor gallery, enhancing the viewing experience.
The Shona Sculpture Gallery is the result of many years of dedication and is the brainchild of expert collectors, dealers, and promoters Guruve. Initially operating the online gallery space www.guruve.com based in Europe, they ventured into this second project in Harare, Zimbabwe. Despite the country's past as an international pariah, the experts at Guruve have taken a long-term view of Zimbabwe’s prospects, investing significant time, care, and money into creating this beautiful exhibition space. As Zimbabwe re-emerges onto the global scene, they are already on the ground, ready to promote the very best sculpture Zimbabwe has to offer.
The gallery is a tranquil haven not too far from the airport. Works from some of the leading Zimbabwean stone sculpture modern African artists are elegantly displayed throughout the beautiful gardens, with smaller sculptures exhibited indoors. The staff are extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and while there is no pressure to make a purchase, the exquisite works of art might leave you sorely tempted.
