An oasis of tranquility on Harare’s busy Airport Road, the green walls of 20 Airport Road hide a glorious sculpture garden bursting with verdant plants and shaded by mature trees. Over 60 large sculptures on display include works by some of the most famous and collectable names in Zimbabwe’s world-renowned ‘Shona sculpture’ movement, alongside astonishing pieces by the stars of the contemporary generation.
Moving onto the Spanish-inspired verandah, with graceful white arches and a cool tiled floor, the display of Zimbabwe’s best sculpture continues, with a selection of superb smaller works including pieces small enough to fit in hand luggage.A labour of love, many years in the making, the Shona Sculpture Gallery is the work of expert collectors, dealers and promoters Guruve – who have moved from online gallery space www.guruve.com in the UK to this second separate project located in Harare, Zimbabwe.
Taking a long-term view of Zimbabwe’s prospects, much care and attention have been invested in creating this beautiful exhibition space. As Zimbabwe emerges back onto the world scene, the experts in the Shona sculpture movement are already on hand, on the ground, to promote the very best sculpture Zimbabwe has to offer.
We look forward to welcoming you to our gallery in the future!
