Artist Reception: Thursday, October 25th, 2012, 6:00-9:00 pm

Three siblings from the internationally known sculpting Nyanhongo family from Zimbabwe: Agnes, the eldest, and the leading female sculptor in Africa, and her brothers Wellington and Moses will be exhibiting their latest stone sculpture at Bonner David Galleries. All three of these sculptors are children of Claud Nyanhongo, one of the first generation Shona sculptors. Having studied with a master, each of these artists has developed their own unique style and influences. Agnes is known for sculpting the role of women with her careful detail and feminine style. Wellington has become distinctive for the posture of his figures and their distinctive hands, feet and ears. Moses, as the youngest, has gone through the biggest evolution, working to cultivate his own flair while remaining true to the original movement. The native springstone, as well as opalstone, lepidolite and serpentine are sensual to the touch and beckon the viewer to participate in the rich stories these sculptures tell.
