Discover Africa’s Culture and Cuisine

These stunning sculptures were created by artists from Zimbabwe. Working with extremely hard varieties of serpentine stone, carvers use hammers, chisels, rasps and finally sandpaper or river sand on rags for finishing.  Artists make their own tools, reshaping metal scrap and industrial blades.

Ten of these beautiful artworks will be featured at “Discover Africa’s Culture and Cuisine” on November 19. Kelowna Grandmothers for Africa and Okanagan Chefs Association are partnering to present this stimulating evening.  Professional chefs will work with junior chefs from the culinary arts program of Okanagan College to prepare and serve African-inspired dishes.  Performers from Nankama Drum and Dance Troup of Penticton will entertain with African drumming, audience participation being encouraged as the evening progresses.  Silent and live auctions will feature a stimulating selection, including sculptures such as these.
