Chinwe Russell Art Gallery will present two amazing art exhibitions across the United Kingdom (UK) once the lockdown occasioned by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is over.
According to a statement, the Exhibitions are “20 Historical Women Who Changed The World” and “Tribes of Africa Exhibition.”
The “20 Historical Women Who Changed The World Exhibition,” the statement said, “is a bold, colourful, educational and historically inspired body of works which gives an insight into the lives of some incredible women from around the world whose works in different sectors have had a massive impact on the contemporary world and continues to do so.
“ The collection contains some well known historical figures seen in a different light such as Marie Curie and Elizabeth the First, but most importantly, it also contains many lesser known women whose works continue shape our daily lives, such as Stephanie Kwolek, Dr. Mary Maynard Daly, Gerty Cori, Nwanyeruwa and many others.
“Carefully but cleverly selected from 100s of possible candidates, spanning from 1500 to this Century, this collection celebrates all that represents strength, courage, perseverance and determination.
“Aimed at the general public, this exhibition is ideal for museums and art galleries around the world as well as educational and corporate establishments.
“In her usual bold and colourful style, the artist seeks to remind us of the powerful powerhouse that women represent around the world.
“In her own words, the artist says, “I am a huge admirer of women, not from a feminist point of view, but from a sense of acknowledgement of these creatures, who inspite of many atrocities committed against them around the world, remain strong and steadfast in order to assure the next generation in perpetuity.”
Each piece in this collection of art works is 1.2m x 0.91m (Acrylic on canvas).
The “Tribes of Africa” exhibition, on the other hand, “takes you on an incredible journey through Africa where you will meet some of the most amazing indigenous tribes who call this continent home.
“From the more well known Maasai and Zulu tribes to the lesser known Nyakyusa and Ndebele tribes, passing through the Omo valley, home to the most incredible people on the planet.
“This is an unmissable exhibition, inspired by some of the most exotic cultures on the planet.
Each piece in this collection is approximately 1.5m x 1.1m (acrylic on canvas).
They are designed to be hung tapestry format, thereby making the rawness of the exhibition more powerful.
