Women artists in Lusaka visited the Lechwe Trust Art Gallery to see the celebratory art exhibition Cynthia at 90years. Among the artists were Mulenga J Mulenga, Mwamba Chikwemba (CZYAA 2020 First prize award winner), Nukwase Tembo, Emily Kasongo, Felistus Mumbi, Gift Nondo, Yande Yombwe and Nyangwalanda Mwanza.
The women artists presented a gift of an artistically carved wooden picture frame with 90th birthday wishes to Lechwe Trust chairperson, Mrs Cynthia Zukas MBE. The artwork was made by Felistus Mumbi. Cynthia Zukas is – and continues to be – an inspiration to many women artists, especially with the multiple roles that women play.
Everyone was excited and happy to see the exhibition in the company of the exhibiting artist and wished her well in her 90th year. It remains one of the rare moments that women in art celebrate one with another.
Cynthia at 90years is running until 20th May, 2021.
