Caribbean on canvas
The importance of the protection of the region’s environment was depicted on canvas, clay and film during the week-long Caribbean Fine Art Fair.
The third-annual instalment of the arts show opened on March 13 and ended on March 17.
“One of the integral forces in Caribbean life is the turquoise sea for which the region is named… The approach by our regional officials to protecting the Caribbean sea, and harnessing its bounty will be an important factor in the region’s growth and development…,” director of CaFa, Anderson Pilgrim said in a message.
“Our artists as usual are in the forefront of addressing this issue, and … have tackled the subject of our environment and its importance to our economics.”
This year was the first time the show has been held at the Spirit Bond Mall in Bridgetown, and Pilgrim believed it was a “perfect” location for such events.
Forty artists from 13 countries were featured this year, showcasing mediums such as sculpture, painting, pencil drawing and multimedia. (LW)
