Gallery Delta110 Livingstone Ave, Harare, Zimbabwe
Gallery Delta was established by Derek Huggins and Helen Lieros in three small rooms at Strachan’s’ building in Manica Road, and opened on the 17th April 1975, a time of sanctions, conflict and war. The intention from the outset was to provide an exhibition space for contemporary paintings, graphics, textiles and ceramics of the highest standard possible as an alternative to ‘Shona Sculpture’ which, led by the National Gallery, dominated the art scene in the city. Within a year or two the gallery occupied seven rooms around the atrium of the premises, and three on the first floor. The gallery was run on a voluntary, part time basis, and exhibitions were held regularly at a rate of about ten or twelve a year. The courtyard served as a space and setting for other events, such as multiracial theatre and jazz performances.
