January 2019

We are pleased to see the second exhibition in 2019 titled, Pieces for Peace, a group exhibition spreading the message for peace in these unsettled times open. The exhibition comes at a time that the nation faces economic challenges, hence the National Gallery in Bulawayo, artists and other local business and institutions are calling for all the pieces to come together for peace.

In this context, the exhibition title refers to parts, portions or shares a fragment or part of anything separated from the whole, in any manner as by cutting, splitting, breaking or tearing in pieces. A piece can be applied to a person as being of a certain nature or quality, the original attributes of every soul are those of *Peace, Purity and Silence. The ecstasy of unlimited warmth gentle waves of light comes from the realms of the spiritual and if the mind is not at *Peace *then all of us will be in broken *Pieces.

Peace, it does not mean to be in a place where there‚Äôs no noise, trouble or hard work.  It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.  The Supreme Being the giver of vibrations of Peace, Love and Happiness. Peaceful vibrations can be practised by every soul when dealing with others or when walking past others on the street. All human souls are born into the cycle of birth and death, and each goes through its own stages of *pure *through to *impure. * When the mind and the intellect are filled with *Purity *no impurity can merge or dominate.

The exhibition will be officially opened by Prof. Mqhele E. Dlodlo, Vice Chancellor National University of Science and Technology on Thursday 31 January 2019, at 1730hrs.
