I collect "Tabora" Hawaiian art. Last time I went into his studio, I bought three pieces of art, but wanted personalized sayings on the back of the canvas. He drove in from home to fulfill my wishes. Great guy!
Yah. There's an annual week long exhibition in a waterfront park in my town http://www.zimart.ca/beaconfield.html. They fill the place up with sculptures and have visiting artists from Zimbabwe working on new ones there. Those sculptors are really nice guys and it's amazing to watch a piece of rock be transformed into something beatiful using only hand tools and elbow grease.
This is one of the sculptors who was there a couple of years ago.
