The sculpture trails are in natural areas. Long pants and closed shoes or boots will provide the most comfortable viewing experience.

This year's exhibition features 12 early gemstone sculptures from the Simukai Collective, including unreleased pieces.

This will comprise the largest and most significant installation of Zimbabwean Gemstone Sculpture yet assembled in one place worldwide. Some pieces are amongst the earliest documented pieces in this breakout new medium.

At least 4 Simukai gemstone sculptures will be offered for sale. Others will be on loan from private collections.

We are also seeking to bring Simukai co-founding artist Stanley Mutanga (@wembizi) to join us as the visiting artist in Gunguo's first season. If he comes, Stan will bring a substantial selection of work from his personal collection for sale, including sculptures produced early during his training in the 1990s when he was working with his mentors Sam Mabeu and Charles Nembaware.

Stan will be available for two private commissions while he is in Canada.

Our Canadian summer is short and spots are limited. Pre-scheduling prevents crowding and helps jumpstart this black-owned exhibition space. Show your support by booking now.

Please also note that we offer free admission for artists and creatives who are curious about collaborating. Apply here.

Each scheduled viewing comes with free, limited-edition artworks. Owning these objects will be testament to your very early support for the gallery. Who knows? If our project succeeds, these unique objects could become collectible.

You will receive your artwork during your viewing, and learn about its future utility at that time.

Unfortunately, the gallery is probably NOT YET accessible for people with mobility challenges.

Our trails are mostly level grass and dirt paths. The indoor galleries occupy a 200-year-old farmhouse with some steps, stairs and uneven ground.

We will increase accessibility in the future.
