First Friday at Global Fayre

First Friday will be here very soon – and we can’t wait!

We always look forward to First Friday Art Walk; it’s great having so many people downtown, everyone having a good time, all the galleries full to the brim. But this time we’re more excited than usual.

Why?

It started last week – we took delivery of a consignment of fantastic Zulu baskets. Some are traditional weave, others are a wonderful combination of the old and the new – baskets woven traditionally but using telephone wire. Vibrant colors, wonderful shapes and patterns – just outstanding. They were so wonderful that we couldn’t resist putting them out on show ahead of time (well, some of them – you have to hold something back for First Friday, right?!).

But these baskets are not the only reason for our excitement. We have live music again this month, this time from someone who has been a friend to Global Fayre pretty much since we first opened. Alexander Kofi (of Jah Kings) will be playing acoustic guitar and Djimbe drum. We’re really thrilled to have our friend here on Friday – it’s going to be an awesome evening!

We’re excited to be having live music again, with Billy Goodman, and you can see what all the galleries are doing at the First Friday web site.

First Friday – May 2, 2008

This month we are featuring the work of Jack Chikeya.

Jack is an artist based in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. He has found a vocation in creating wonders from the scrap metal that has started to litter the landscape as his country dives deeper into political upheaval and financial trouble.

 

Jack is not into politics. He just wishes to feed and clothe his family and to encourage other artists to work alongside him to better their already difficult situation.

 

Each piece uses ordinary welding machines, scrap metal, and sheet metal and takes around 4 hours to make.

 

These wonderfully sculptures are great for the home or the garden. They will instantly bring a smile to your face with their uniquely quirky character.
