By Nathan Kiwere WHEN Mr Paul Lubowa and Ms Amanda Tumusiime decided on holding a joint Art Exhibition at Nommo Gallery, the two had quite divergent ideals. They finally settled for the Double Heritage ideology. This theme is symbolic of the Baganda and Bakiga cultures from where the two artists hail respectively. The exhibition, ended last week, August 10. Though the environment is different, the activities are pretty much related, thus the double heritage. According to Amanda, “A society without art is a dead one.” She adds that art speaks and communicates to and about society by affording insight into aspirations and achievements of society. She uses the drawing and painting of a woman to appreciate her contribution as a mother, a taxpayer and a farmer. Lubowa strives to draw inspiration from the past and the present in a bid to make a visual record of his interpretation of nature. Ends
