A tribute exhibition of paintings, graphics and three dimensional multimedia works for the late Friedbert Lutz themed “Way Finding” is running at Gallery Delta. The collaborative exhibition opened on Thursday last week. Some of the titles of pieces on display include “The Crucifix and the Embattled Institution”, “Tree of Light”, “Different Routes Different Destinations”, “Roadblocks” and “Monkey Wedding”.

Guest of honour at the event was the Ambassador of Germany, His Excellency Ulrich Kloeckner.

Gallery acting Chairman Harry Kantor said the late Lutz was an art lover, collector and a follower of the gallery activities.

“We have been pleased to organise and represent this exhibition in liaison with Lutz’s daughter Christina in tribute to him for his long standing interest in art and artists, and encouragement and support to the gallery,” he said.

Kantor said the exhibition theme described Lutz personality and thanked all the artists that participated.

“We thank the artists for their interpretations and works on theme “Way Finding”.

Lutz was a great problem-solver and he invariably found a way and believed that if one found path without obstacles it probably would lead nowhere.

“That is why this exhibition is entitled ‘Way Finding’,” he said.

Christina Lutz thanked the artists for their diverse and thought-provoking interpretations of the theme as they shared their personal way finding journeys.

More than 20 artists participated and some of them include Arthur Azevedo, Marjorie Wallace, Masimba Hwati, Option Nyahunzvi, Mercy Moyo and Terrence Musekiwa.

Lutz took part at the gallery’s inaugural exhibition on April 17, 1975 and he attended exhibitions regularly.

The artist, who was a trustee of the Gallery Delta Foundation for Art and the Humanities, was born on March 29, 1942 and died on July 17, 2013.
