Tambira Gallery, which is situated in Harare, houses contemporary Zimbabwean sculpture and painting, together with collections from African and Papua New Guinea tribal arts.

 

It also features works by young kids whose parents passed on because of HIV and Aids. In an interview with ZBC News, one of the founders and curator of the exhibition, Benhura, said all profits go to fund community programs for the care of orphaned children who are also taking part in the programme.

Co-founder of the gallery, Jill Atherstone, said she is proud to be associated with this project called Communities-Can-Do-It. The programme offers opportunities to talented young up and coming artists who are into painting, wood, stone and metal sculpture.

An exhibition of a large collection of contemporary works by leading Zimbabwean sculptors is also being curated.

 

The gallery is situated at the former home of the late Director of the National Gallery of Zimbabwe, Professor Cyril Rogers, and his late wife Betty.
