OB artist to hold charitable art exhibition

OB Venetia Syms (Greenleaves 2009) has recently been travelling all over Zimbabwe discovering different types of stone and artists of astonishing craftmanship.

Whilst on their travels around Zimbabwe,Venetia and a friend collected over 200 pieces of sculpture. They also designed some of the sculptures and are now planning a wonderful exhibition in June to show off their collection. The SHAMVA Exhibition will be held at Lower Lye, East Knoyle, SP3 6AQ (by kind permission of Andrew and Belinda Scott) from Sunday 11 to Wednesday 14 June and can be viewed from 10am - 6pm daily.  

Venetia has also agreed for 15% of any proceeds to go to the Pause Charity, which Andrew and Belinda selected.  The charity works with women who are at risk of losing children from their care, giving them the opportunity to develop new skills and tackle destructive behaviour.

Some of you may recognise Venetia as an OB artist who was part of our art show in London last November, Bryanston Today. We wish Venetia all the best with the exhibition. More information can be found at
