Good Journey Development Foundation invites you to the wonders of Zulu Basket Weaving featuring the artistry of Beauty Ngxongo and her daughter Thulile Ngxongo.

When South African Beauty Ngxongo creates a basket, it is more than a beautiful work of art; it is an expression of the Zulu culture.

Beauty Ngxongo is an exceptional artist from KwaZulu Natal in South Africa and winner of the South African National Best Artist award. Her works are published in books, magazines and part of permanent collections of museums and art galleries, including the Smithsonian in Washington D.C.

The Ngxongo Basket Weaving Exhibit will be displayed at the Exodus Gallery, 5075 Delmar Ave from July 6th thru July 20th, 2017. An opening reception to welcome Beauty and Thulile Ngxongo to St. Louis is at the Exodus Gallery on Thursday, July 6, 2017, 6:00-8:00 pm. Over their two weeks in the metro area, the Ngxongo mother and daughter team will be involved in basket making classes and a community dialogue.
