NEW EXHIBITION PLANNED BY THE AFRICAN ART CENTRE

ENCHANTING CREATURES OF THE FOREST
 Opening Saturday 8 August 2020 plus virtual tour

Timothy Mlambo, Themba Khumalo, Widus Mtshali, Sibusiso Gumede,

have been working together for many years, being part of a family group plus friends and neighbours in the forest at Mangusi in Northern KwaZulu-Natal.

Imagination runs riot in hand-carved indigenous wood.  Some sculptures are decorated with paint, with Timothy Mlambo and Themba Khumalo being experts. 

Other designs are burnt in with hot iron wire (pyrography), to create patterns which enhance the forms. Widus Mtshali and Sibusiso Gumede are masters of this technique.
