Titled Green Shots, the exhibition which opened on Thursday night is a display of remarkable artwork in different mediums including metal and stone sculptor, oil canvas, photography and mixed media.

The exhibitions are all done by first and second year students among them Alfred Masunda, Tawanda Mufambe, Kreshia Mukwazhi and Option Nyahunzvi.

NGZ director Doreen Sibanda said she was impressed by the work the students came up with.

“As the National Gallery we are proud of the caliber of students we are attracting and what they turn out to be. The artwork on exhibition can speak for itself on how talented and creative these students are,” she said.

“This place is usually reserved for the crème de la crème, but our Curator for Education Thandazani Dhlakama felt these art pieces deserve to be here other than the corners they are usually put and I agree with her I don’t see any difference with the work we usually have in here.”

Dhlakama said the title Green Shots goes hand in hand with the season in which flora emerges as well as the students trying to forge their own identities.

Meanwhile, Minister of Sports, Art and Culture Andrew Langa applauded the NGZ training programme for nurturing young artists.

In a speech read on his behalf by the ministry’s principal director Paul Dhamasane, Langa said the training programme was a step towards contributing to the country’s development, creating employment and boosting social development, social integration and nation building.
