ART GALLERY

What better way to showcase Namibian arts and crafts, then by exhibiting it in an accommodation establishment?
– Prof. Aldo Behrens, Co-ordinator:
Bank Windhoek Arts Festival.

In response to the launch-initiative of the guesthouse art gallery idea, Prof. Behrens applauded this initiative and during February 2007, Guesthouse Terra Africa became the first Namibian guest house to continually host Namibian and African art as part of the permanent décor, as well as regular art exhibitions and sales, in an effort to create a new platform for art in the country.

Exhibited throughout the Terra Africa House are art pieces from Namibia, South Africa, Uganda, Mozambique, Ethiopia, Egypt and Nigeria. Two paintings, a gift from Germany by guest & artist Ramona Faltin, are proudly displayed in our foyer. Gracing us with her presence is a Sergiev Possad-style Matryoshka Doll – a gift by Michael & Larisa Lyakhova from Moscow, Russia, during their two week stay with us.

Be on the lookout for works by permanent exhibiting artist, Helena Brandt, who is well-known in local and international art circles. Helena boasts a testimonial of successful local and international exhibitions spanning over 30 years. She has been lecturer at various prominent fine arts academies across the globe and has played an active role in the development of fine arts in Namibia.

Kizito Maria Kasule (dr.) of Uganda is a graduate of his local Makerere University, and has been professionally involved in the fine arts since obtaining his Bachelor’s in Fine Arts in 1993. In 2003 he obtained a PhD in Fine Arts and ever since he has dedicated himself to the development of the arts in Uganda. Art pieces by Kasule have made their home in Germany, Kenya, Canada, Kampala, South Africa, Entebbe, Denmark and recently Namibia, in the Terra Africa House.

Purchasable art pieces are clearly labelled and placed throughout the guest house in our guest rooms, lounge, dinning room, corridors and even in the gardens surrounding the guest house. Per visit, guests can look forward to no less than 40 original masterpieces in formats such as paintings, crafts and jewellery, to remember their visit to Namibia and in particular, Guesthouse Terra Africa.
