ZimArt’s Rice Lake Gallery, African sculpture on display in the Kawartha landscape
Founded in 2000, the Rice lake Gallery is best described as museum in nature. Curator, Fran Fearnley, travels to Zimbabwean to select unique hand-carved stone sculpture directly from the artists. The sculptures, in a range of sizes, are installed over three acres in this natural setting and surrounded by stunning views. All the works are for sale.
Every year a visiting Zimbabwean artist offers stone sculpting workshops and demonstrations. The gallery also hosts a number of different events annually. Please visit the website’s Special Events page for more details.
The Gallery is open daily from June 1 to Thanksgiving, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is free. Picnic facilities are provided. The Gallery’s annual exhibition runs from the first Saturday in August to the first Sunday in September.
This is a perfect destination for art lovers of all ages. This is a great place to introduce children to art. Touching (carefully!) is part of the experience.
