Welcome To Stonehouse Gallery
Welcome to our on-line gallery of talented Zimbabwean Artists. The site showcases their works to a world-wide audience who appreciate art and to those who are interested in purchasing originals, rather than copies or prints, to enhance your living space. The website does not take a percentage or commission from sales, therefore the prices listed are a true reflection of the value of the piece set by the artist.
Please take your time and enjoy the experience each artist has to offer you.
We are offering you a chance to view and purchase the wonderful array of inspirational and diverse artworks that are available in Zimbabwe. Art does not just encompass the traditional medium of oil or watercolour paintings, but includes all forms of creativity.
We will introduce you to a wide range of artists whose art tells their story, and reveal to you the collector, the vibrant and colourful charisma of these individuals.
The inspiration for the name of this website “Stonehouse Gallery” comes from Zimbabwe’s namesake - Great Zimbabwe.
Great Zimbabwe are ruins that are built entirely of stone and was once the capital of Zimbabwe between 1100 and 1400. The city was the royal palace for the various kings during this period and was the power base for these monarchs. Famous for its walls, of which some are over five metres high and constructed without mortar, the ruins at Great Zimbabwe are some of the oldest and largest structures in Southern Africa.
Zimbabwe derives from Dzimba-dza-mabwe, a Karanga dialect of Shona, as “large houses of stone”.
