CAMBA is proud to be one of the nation’s premiere purveyors of Shona Sculptures. Proceeds from our Annual Sale and Exhibition of Stone Sculptures from Zimbabwe directly support our programs and services. Zimbabwe, a southern African country whose name literally means “the house of stone”, is known for its remarkable stone sculptors. Semi-abstract works created by artists of the country’s largest ethnic group can be found in the collections of many of the world’s most discerning art collectors, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, the Musée Rodin in Paris, the Rockefellers, and Queen Elizabeth II of England. CAMBA’s Annual Sale and Exhibition of Stone Sculpture from Zimbabwe features works by many noted and established sculptors, as well as the offerings of emerging artists.
Our 1,500 square-foot gallery on the 4th floor of 19 Winthrop Street provides exhibition space for many Shona sculptures at one time, making it one of the most impressive collections in the United States.
Because of the deteriorating political climate in Zimbabwe and the resultant downturn in foreign tourism, there are few other venues for these artists to find a market for their work. CAMBA’s commitment to retaining a Shona gallery allows us both to offer these works at reasonable prices and to enable the sculptors to continue their artistic endeavors. These stone sculptures can be viewed and purchased by appointment, online and during our annual fall sale and exhibition. Forty percent of the purchase price of each sculpture is tax deductible. Proceeds from the sales benefit CAMBA and its programs.
