The true beauty of the arts within Crop-Over is the fusion that has become a part of the Visual Arts Exhibition on the calendar.
In addition to the Central Visual Arts Gala, the exhibition themed Heritage and the Arts, which was mounted this year at The Grande Salle of the Central Bank, at Queen’s Park Gallery at Pelican and at Harrison’s on Broad Street, saw another wonderful fusion of art, craft, dance, drama and music in the two hosted Evenings of Interpretation.
While the art and craft brought Barbados’ history, culture and the arts alive through canvas, wood and various other medium, the Evening of Interpretation gave young artists the chance to explore and personalise selected pieces and then perform them for an audience, who in turn got to engage the performing artists as well as some of the other visual artists about the meaning behind the pieces.
