June Feature Artist

Gallery IS, is pleased to announce its next upcoming solo exhibit by Edmonton sculptor Shumba Ash. "Freedom" is a collection of stone and metal sculptures in Shumba's unique style. This style is influenced by his home country of Zimbabwe, and his new home of Canada, to create his Afro-Canadian experience. We are also very excited that Shumba's life sized wire sculpture of a motocycle will be included in this show.

"Freedom, do we know it, do we appriciate it and after fighting for it do we loose it again; to fight for it again."

Freedom of expression is what many have died for and are fighting for, how blessed am I to have this artistic freedom. Am I, are we taking full advantage of it?


"Freedom" will be on display at Gallery IS from June 2nd - June 28th. The opening reception will be friday June 6th, 6-8pm.
