Painter to bring art to local book shop

| 14/04/2009

(CNS): With her work now donning the cover of New Art International, a compendium of contemporary art April Bending will be visiting Books & Books this weekend for an Evening of Art. The book which contains 348 colour plates from 95 individuals including Bending is described as an exhibition-between-covers of contemporary artistic impetus and achievement. During the even Bending will be talking about her career as an artist, signing copies of the book and showing some of her work.

Bending moved to Grand Cayman in 2001 and has worked hard to promote the arts throughout the local community. As well as teaching at the University College of the Cayman Islands, she introduced art classes at Northward Prison and developed courses for troubled teens. Her paintings have achieved international acclaim through a full schedule of exhibitions in the Cayman Islands, the USA, Canada, Europe and Japan. Recently, April’s painting, “Sunset on an Era”, won the cover award for New Art International. The event is free and open to the public and starts at 7pm on Saturday 18 April.
