Specializing in original stone sculpture, Ukama Gallery on Granville Island represents hundreds of skilled emerging and world-renowned artists from Zimbabwe. Each unique work of art is personally selected with an eye towards capturing the remarkable variety of styles that flourish in an artistic community that ranges across the country, from well-established artist communities and co-operatives, to the many hard-to-reach rural areas. In this way, the Ukama Gallery collection is curated to convey a real sense of the important contribution that Zimbabwean sculptors are making to modern art. Complementing the sculpture are paintings and mixed media works from outstanding local Canadian artists. The combination of expressive and imaginative artwork adds colour and texture to the very tactile impression of the sculpture. Side by side, these complementary art forms have something to say about the essence of the human artistic instinct and experience.
