Missionvale: Legacy Art Project

06 December 2022 - 16 February 2023
Missionvale: Legacy Art Project

The Legacy Art Project was created in memory of the Missionvale Care Centre’s legendary founder, Sr Ethel Normoyle.  

The project aims to provide a creative outlet for youth to express themselves and to derive an income from the art in order to sustain the Care Centre’s wide range of activities.  The project theme for this year is Phila Uphilise which translates to Healing to Heal.  This theme is consistent with the Centre’s mission of serving through love, and to restore hope and dignity to those who need it most.  

The Centre was fortunate to partner with the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Art Museum, and 4 professional artists to bring this project to life!  The result was an exciting mix of painting, clay work, print making and beading. 

The project was funded by the Friends of the Art Museum.

Artists on show are:  
Abongile July, Fundiswa Katshe, Kamvelihle Tengile, Luhlumelo Makasi, Lukhanyo Keep, Lungiswa Mvambi, Mido Gqumiso, Owethu Swartbooi, Sinothando Gahe, Sinovuyo Gahe, Sisipho Mbane, Wongalethu Arris, Xolani Magquntulu, Xolela Mdingi, Yambesa Lamani.
