Barbadians, as well as visitors to the island, will get the opportunity to see and purchase art, just in time for the holiday season, when the Community Development Department (CDD) mounts an exhibition in Noman Centre, The City.
Programme Officer at the CDD, Bridgette Marshall-Griffith, explained that the exhibition would run from November 24, to December 2, in the heart of Bridgetown to ensure that the display was accessible to everyone.
She said she hopes the exhibition would inspire aspiring artists or persons who might have a passion for art to come and view the display, and hopefully sign up for the Community Art Career programme. She added that it would allow persons who visit the exhibition to realise that there are several career options available to persons in the field of art.
Mrs. Marshall-Griffith also disclosed that all of the art was created by graduates or current students of the Community Art Career programme, which is held annually by the CDD.
She said the art pieces would also be available for purchase at “very reasonable prices”, to ensure that everyone could own a piece of art.
This exhibition will be the second of its kind. The last one was held in 2011 at the PomMarine Hotel.
