An exhibition of sculpture showcasing Zimbabwean Shona artistic talent is on display at Newby Hall during August and September.


The exhibition is curated by Orlando Compton together with Zimbabwean sculptors Dudzai Mushawepwere and Matthew Nakhawale who are artists in residence at Newby until September.



Featuring the work of renowned and emerging artists from all over Zimbabwe, the sculptures by solo artists, community workshops and co-operatives are all available to purchase.


As well as being able to watch Dudzai and Matthew demonstrate how the sculptures are created, visitors can get hands-on and join a workshop to learn sculpting skills under the watchful eye of the experts.



Now in its 16th year of residency at Newby Hall, the Matombo outdoor sculpture exhibition will be on display in the award-winning gardens and open to the public until 30 September or by appointment.




Newby Hall and gardens is open seven days a week 11am-5.30pm during North Yorkshire school holidays. Adults £18.00, children (4-15 years) £15.00, children (2-3 years) £5. Children under 2 are free. The admission price includes entry into the sculpture exhibition and to the gardens, including the adventure playground, Dollshouse exhibition and Gyles Brandreth’s Teddy Bear Collection in the Bear House.
