Showcase for painters

-

A record 50 painters are set to grace this year’s edition of the Verandah Gallery Annual Charity Show which starts this Sunday.
The show’s co-ordinator, Anna Fleming, said the one-day annual art exhibition, founded in 1992, will see 25% commission from all the paintings that will be sold going to the Emerald Hill Children’s Home and the Emerald Hill School for the Deaf.
“The exhibition will feature mainly paintings but there will also be a small selection of Shona stone sculptures on sale from The National Gallery. Detema Jazz Band will be providing the entertainment while Vabatsiri Soroptimist Club will provide refreshments and there will also be a wine bar,” she said.
The gallery, which also publishes postcards and calendars, has also provided a platform for many artistes to garner recognition from the art lovers.
Daryl Nero, a prolific Zimbabwean painter whose works are regularly exhibited at the gallery, said the event was very essential and a good platform for artists around the country to be known while they contributed to the charity initiative of the gallery.
“It is unfortunate I will not be able to attend the exhibition this year as I will be in Cape Town but I have already sent my work there (the verandah gallery) to be exhibited in my absence,” said Nero.
