Dr. Workman's African Art Collection

On Saturday July 9th a small group from the "Friends of South Africa" group visited with Dr. Workman. He showed us his vast collection of African art. He had some exquisite Shona pieces as well as artwork from central Africa. The vast majority of the sculptures were, however, from West Africa. This is understandable as the sculptural tradition from West Africa goes back a 1000 years. Most of the pieces were carved out of wood and many had been used in rituals and dances.

Dr. Workman started his collection when he was about seven years old and has primarily bought from traders. He has also visited Africa and showed us a portfolio of photos that he accompanied with fascinating stories that brought many of the sculptures and artworks to life.

"CALL OF THE WILD" Weekend Getaway for FoSa

Hallo Friends
I found a perfect spot for a weekend getaway for all of us. I'm testing the waters to see who would be interested in camping with us. There is a house with 15 bunk beds on the property, but also a beautiful area for pitching a tent.

We can roast a pig/lamb/ox...but I'll need helpers and volunteers.

We can "sokkie"/dance in the evening if someone can help me organize music.

I'm thinking Labor Day Weekend....let me know if you may be interested!!

Fees: $25 per adult, $15 per kid sleeping in the house. $40 per family sleeping in a tent. Space in the house is limited...first come first serve.

Or $10p/p if you just want to come and hang out for the day and not spend the night.
