Jane Ashley Mapfuise says she is using her visual art exhibition to empower young school girls to venture into art and design.

“Young girls should use visual art exhibition as resource centres so that they can pursue art as a career option. Some people don’t know that they are many job opportunities in the art industries,” said Jane.

Some of Jane’s work that is being exhibited include art inform of a jig saw puzzle depicting women celebrating life.

“On the jigsaw puzzle I was trying to create a piece that is different, I did not want to create one simple art work which is a standalone piece, I decided to make a collage, the pieces are not straight, they are dimensional. The artwork itself is more of two women dancing and in my artwork I was promoting more of women in the arts industry,” said Jane.

Jane is a final year Bachelor of Science Degree in Visual Communication and Multi Media Design at Chinhoyi University of Technology. The exhibition which is running under the theme Time Capsule will close today at Moto Republic in Harare.
