Reception Photos: Jambo, Tanzania

On Saturday, May 3, WPG member artist Marian Osher hosted the opening reception for her current exhibition, Jambo, Tanzania. Below, you will find several photos from the event.

During this reception, Osher gave a talk and demonstration – then presented a framed print to our special guest, Ambassador Liberata Mulamula of Tanzania. The print was a lioness and was titled Guardian Protector in English and in Swahili. Tanzanian Tourism Officer Mrs. Immaculata Diyamett accompanied Ambassador Mulamula. Marie Frei, Membership Service Associate for the African Wildlife Foundation, also attended the event.

During her presentation, Osher talked about her visit to Tanzania – the safari, the wildlife, and Tanzania’s role in protecting the wildlife. Ambassador Mulamula also addressed the crowd of more than 70 people who attended the event. It was a day that truly blended art, goodwill, wildlife protection and people from different cultures and walks of life.

    So enjoyed the fact that Marion (a friend and neighbor of mine) enjoyed such a good turnout for her presentation on Jambo, Tanzania. She is truly talented artist as well as a “goodwill ambassador” for wildlife preservation.
