Visual arts growing

cropover2013thisisartThe Central Bank Crop-Over Visual Arts Festival is growing. And this year in association with Republic Bank, the National Cultural Foundation has spread the exhibition, which now includes fine art and craft, as well as performances, across locations for the public to enjoy.

The main exhibit is mounted at the Grand Salle of the Central Bank, with other sections available for viewing at #1 Broad Street, the location of the old Harrison store in the City and Queens Park Gallery at Pelican.

With the event expanded in this fourth year of the rebranded festival, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Culture, Ruth Blackman noted at the opening that it has now become a festival “complete with prestigious prize incentives, evenings of interpretation and a spread of three venues, thanks to our sponsors”.

The exhibits are now open for viewing by the general public, under the theme Heritage and the Arts. (LB)
