Exhibit of art by indigenous Africans ongoing at Goshen College

GOSHEN — The “Indigenous Arts of Africa” exhibit is underway at the Goshen College Music Center’s Hershberger Art Gallery. The showcase runs through Sept. 22.

A reception is planned on the last day of the exhibit from 2 to 3:30 p.m. A “Topics and Issues” lecture is scheduled after the reception, according to GC staff.

The exhibition of 21st-century African art is a sampling of the collection of Ann and Keith Graber Miller, owners of Found, an art gallery in downtown Goshen.

Collected from the Graber Millers’ travels in Kenya and Ethiopia, as well as their acquisition of the West African collections of several others, the exhibition includes: a beaded chieftan’s coat from Nigeria, antique woven vegetal and leather baskets from the Orono people of Ethiopia, fabrics from Ghana and Congo, bronze statues from Cameroon and Benin, large ceremonial masks from the Bobo people of Burkina Faso, stone Shona sculptures from Zimbabwe and Ethiopian Orthodox icons.

The collection is a combination of ceremonial objects as well as artifacts from daily life. Many of the pieces were inspired by high religious feeling and linked to ancestor worship, GC staff reported.

Keith Graber Miller is professor of religion in Goshen College’s Bible and Religion Department .and Ann Graber Miller is an interior design consultant.

Gallery hours

The Hershberger Art Gallery is located in the Music Center and is open during the summer from 10 a.m. to noon on weekends and 1 to 3 p.m. on weekdays.
