Way forward for Caymanian arts

| 08/10/2008

(CNS): As part of an ongoing discussion relating to the development of arts and culture in our islands, the National Gallery is holding a discussion session entitled ‘Art as a Product? The commercial arts vs. art for arts sake’, which will take place at 6:00pm on Tuesday, 14 October, at the National Gallery Harbour Place location on South Church Street.

The first in this series of discussions resulted in enthusiastic dialogue from both the invited panel and the audience, with some extremely interesting points raised. The next session is set to be just as informative.

“Following directly on from points raised in the last discussion, this session will look at the different ways artists approach the creation of their work and the various commercial opportunities available for artists in the Cayman Islands,” explains Event Coordinator and National Gallery Deputy Director Natalie Coleman. “It is a forum through which artists can put their own questions to the invited panel and we encourage all to attend.”

Admission is free with complementary refreshments. To RSVP please e-mail communications.ng@candw.ky or call 945 8111.
