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.

The artist further indicated that on Wednesday, November 20, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. the exhibition would feature a tour and an artist talk-back session.
