The National Art Gallery of Zimbabwe in Bulawayo held an exhibition whose aim was to preach peace in the wake of recent disturbances witnessed in the country.

Arts play a pivotal role in the fight against social ills and shaping a community.

A group of artists representing different genres exhibited their works under the theme: ‘Pieces and Peace.’

Guest of honor at the exhibition, NUST Vice Chancellor, Professor Mqhele Dlodlo encouraged artists to continue pushing for the peace initiative.

“Artists through their works are able to speak out against violence and call on peace through visual art works,” he said.

Peace is a valuable commodity, central to the growth of families, communities and nations.
