Award-winning artist to stage landscape exhibition on Wednesday, November 13
Recipient of the Arts and Sports Promotion Fund, Alison Chapman-Andrews, will stage a visual arts exhibition entitled Landscape Revisited.
The official launch will be held on Wednesday, November 13, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., at the Punch Creative Arena, Morningside Gallery, Barbados Community College, Howell’s Cross Road, St. Michael.
The exhibition, which will run until Friday, November 29, will open Mondays to Fridays from 10:00 a.m. to 6:p.m. and on Saturday, November 23, from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m. The gallery will be closed on Sundays.
The artist, who was awarded the 2006 Lifetime Achievement Award and the first Governor’s Award for the Crop Over Show, explained that her upcoming exhibition compared landscapes she drew years ago to what they have evolved to in modern day.
“Often things have changed. Gullies and gardens are now overgrown and unrecognisable, farming methods have also changed the scene,” she said.
Mrs. Chapman-Andrews added that through the Arts and Sports Promotion Fund, she was also able to print an arts catalogue, which would be available for sale during the show. The catalogue essay, written by Therese Hadchity, is entitled Encounters and Borderlands.
Admission to the exhibition is free and the public is invited to attend.
The Arts and Sports Promotion Fund provides financing for programmes and activities related to the development of arts and sports in Barbados.
