Maun Artists

A stunning  painting of a Kudu ,by a local young artist Mr Moruakgoma.

The recently formed Okavango Artist Association held an Exhibition  a couple of weeks ago, showcasing Maun Artists , and which can still be enjoyed,at our Local Museum.Some of the artists were exhibiting for the first time ,others were more experienced .I thought I might display a little of that talent .



A painting of baskets 

A photo of a sleepy lion by Stuart

Stuart James Arnold is a fine art photographer ,and he displayed a number of his works.Found out today that he is also on blogspot kalaharistuart.blogspot.com also visit his website kalahariimages.com

This painting was done as a wall hanging,by a young new artist who was exhibiting for the first time.

Generally the northern part of Botswana which includes Maun is famous for its baskets.Visit Botswana Craft Gallery to see more examples of Botswanas Baskets and the intricate designs they carry.

We also have a local sculptress, Christiane Stolhofer who creates stunning abstract art work out of beautiful woods. Visit her website bushmemoryart.com or view her online gallery at bush memory art gallery

Great sketch. I've toyed with the idea of painting baobabs and have a couple of pictures of them against a setting sun. I must give it a try. Thanks for the kind comment on my blog.
