After arriving in Uganda on Sunday evening, we arranged a meeting in the Wakiso district of Uganda, outside of Kampala, with one of the artists that will be traveling to Masaka with us, Ivan Yakuze. Ivan will be displaying several of his barkcloth pieces in the Traveling Exhibition that will be shown in Masaka and later in Texas. It was a wonderful experience to see his work first hand and get to hear him discuss the different techniques and imagery he uses. Here are several images from the visit, Enjoy!
