UGANDA, Africa (eTN) – The Uganda-based GeoLodges, formerly known as Inns of Uganda, has recently started to promote local artists and art pieces through their “Art on Safari” initiative. Presently about 90 art pieces are on display in the group’s four lodges – Nile Safari Lodge just outside Murchisons Falls National Park, the award-winning RainForest Lodge in Mabira forests (between Kampala and Jinja), Jacana Safari Lodge on Lake Nyamusingire/Queen Elizabeth National Park, and the Silverback Lodge just outside Bwindi Impenetrable Forest “Gorilla” National Park.

It is understood that the 5 chosen artists were involved in selecting their respective works to fit the particular location where they are now on display and a specially-designed catalogue will give visitors to those lodges an idea what is on offer.

Guests staying at the lodges can purchase the art pieces, which are then packed and taken to Kampala before tourists take them home as lasting souvenirs, in the process supporting the promotion of local arts.

The exhibition will initially run until the end of September but may, depending on the success, become a regular feature.
