Ubuntu 5 – A gallery show by a collective of five artists from the North Okanagan begins on October 3rd and runs until November 15th.
Ubuntu is an ancient African term that describes our relationships with others and how those relationships shape who we are. It literally translates as “I am because we are.” This is the theme of our work. It is about community, our interdependence, our diversity. In the words of Desmond Tutu, “We belong in a bundle of life.” We are a group of 5 womn artists coming together to create a exhibition celebrating humanity. The variety of styles and media reflects our personal views of what it is to be human. Because we’ve found connection and community through our art, we call ourselves Ubuntu Five.
