6-30 Nov 2009. Serpentine and African opal stone sculptures by Tanzania-based Dutch artist Mieke van Grinsven are on display in an exhibition titled Between Two Worlds. Born in the Netherlands in 1957, van Grinsven experimented with handicrafts, carpentry and leather production before committing herself to sculpture in stone. She has lived in Africa since the early 1980s, first in Zambia and now in Tanzania, where she is based in Arusha. However her art is inspired by the Shona sculpture of Zimbabwe, from where she procures her stone. In her work she strives to bridge the divide between her native and her adopted continents, as reflected by the title of the present exhibition. Van Grinsven has exhibited widely in Tanzania and this is her second show in Kenya. Daily 09.30-17.30.
