The Cynthia Zukas

Young Artist Award

Emerging Artist Award Competition 2021


The Lechwe Trust Art Gallery is exhibiting the 2nd CZYAA exhibition featuring 52 young artists from all over Zambia. On display we have over 150 artworks ranging from digital art, wooden & scrap metal sculptures, ceramics, crafts, installations, paintings, drawings and photography.

We can happily note that the young artists have greatly improved on presentation and standard of artworks. The official opening and prize giving of the CZYAA 2021 Exhibition saw the four youngest artists, aged 17 and 18 years, receiving ‘special mention’ prizes.

Of the winners Kangwa Yombwe’s “Woman with sugarcane”, 2021 received the CZYAA 2021 1st Prize;
Mwape Fundanga’s “Nsolo”, 2021 got 2nd prize and
Mwaba Chandia’s Patterns 8 & patterns 9 2021 got 3rd prize.

We encourage collectors and patrons to support young emerging talent during the exhibition, as all artworks are for sale.
The CZYAA exhibition will close at the end of March 2022.
