Four days of Art at Junction mall

Gaborone Arts Festival (GAF) hosted a four-day art exhibition at Airport Junction Mall for local and international artists to showcase their creativity.

The event started on Thursday to Saturday and the public got an opportunity to witness both local and international talent and buy some of the gorgeous pieces displayed. Though most artists said that business was slow, they expressed their gratitude to the organisers saying that this was a way of educating and showcasing the beauty of art to ordinary people.

The founder of GAF Ouma Rammidi and her co-art advocate Lesedi Jerrette coordinated the magnificent event. Rammidi said the event served as a platform for Botswana artists to showcase their talent, network and grow to earn a living. She said that the big picture for the platform is to introduce, promote and brand Botswana art and craft in local and international markets. Being an artist herself, Rammidi said that she strongly believes and trusts that through education, support and nurturing, local artists can compete and supply their products in the global markets.
