A team of artists from the Rwenzori region are showcasing their best cultural works at the Uganda Museum in an art exhibition that opened on 11th and is running to October 19th.

The team is specifically showcasing eye catching bronze art pieces of over 30 clans and totems of Uganda.

These include iconic species such as elephant, http://cstaab.com/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/includes/widgets/class-wc-widget-recently-viewed.php lion, http://centthor.com/wp-includes/registration.php buffalo, http://conceive.ca/wp-content/cache/wp-cache-7747aa5a11a791114082113787eba159.php colobus and hippo. They also include more elusive creatures like pangolin and the otter.

In the past, all the art pieces made of Bronze were well known to be imported. The team from Rwenzori Foundation Art Centre however, prides in the fact that all their work has been made here in Uganda

While addressing the media at the Uganda Museum, Emmanuel Basaza the foundation director said they are proud to showcase the first ever art pieces of bronze made in Uganda.

“l urge Ugandans to appreciate Ugandan art, come see what we can do and actually buy art pieces from Uganda not Europe. we have full potential of designing the best art pieces like you will come and witness at the Uganda Museum’’ he said

The artists are from Uganda and Europe and they include Emmanuel Basaza, David Bwambale, Jon Buck, Ann Christopher, Sue Freeborough, Jonathan Kingdon, Steve Mwesigwa, Eria Sane Nsubuga, Isaac Okwir and Peter Oloya.

All their works are an inspiration by the people, culture, wildlife and beauty of Uganda and make the perfect memento to mark an unforgettable journey for anyone who may visit the country and want something to always look at and remember.
