NCF: Will you won’t you join The Dance? Cricket Culture Village now Art Supermarket (Shameless Plug)

Remember when we said the NCF was hosting a cricketing Culture Village? Then we said “NO” they’re not? Like Alice In Wonderland‘s characters, now they are, AGAIN –

The exciting ART SUPERMARKET returns to QPG for Cricket World Cup!! The exhibition opens on Monday, April 2nd 2007 at 6.30pm. Gallery opening hours are Monday to Saturday 10am – 6pm. There is a special ceiling on prices this time around: no single item exceeds B’dos $1,000.

There is more photography than in previous exhibitions, with work by such luminaries as Carl Dottin, Bob Kiss and Eric Belgrave. Painting and mixed-media work is in greater abundance.

Some of the artists are Alison Chapman-Andrews, Norma Talma, Clairmonte Mapp and Heidi Berger. For unique fine craft, this is the show to see. We have work by Annalee Davis, Andrea Wells, Michael Alkins, Martine Pile, Angela Went and others. There is sculpture by Jason Hope and Juliana Inniss and amazing masks by Nakazzi Hutchinson. The beauty of Barbadian woods (tamarind, cordia and mahogany) is celebrated in the bowls and furniture of Cy Hutchinson.

An array of hand-crafted chairs by some of Barbados’ best designers and artists, including Dr Lance Bannister, Ashanti Trotman and Graphic Designer Shelly Mayers. The exhibition changes daily with work being sold and removed and new work replacing it, so you’ll have to make several visits if you’re not to miss out on the fabulous work appearing daily. This feast of Barbadian creativity comes to an end on April 28th.
