Enduring Nature Exhibition travels to the Brac

| 05/06/2009

(CNS): A photo exhibition of the natural beauty of Cayman Brac is traveling to the Sister Islands and opens tonight, 5 June, at the Heritage House in North East Bay, starting at 7:00pm, where the public is invited to view the works and meet with the artist. The photographs will be on display until Friday 12 June. The Enduring Nature Brac Exhibit  will then move to Little Cayman’s Trust House with the opening event scheduled 18th June at 6:00pm. Residents and visitors of Little Cayman can enjoy the display untilWednesday 1st July. Refreshments will be served at both events.

Canadian photographer, Robert Scott Michiel worked on Cayman Brac for 18 months prior to Hurricane Paloma. During this time he photographed the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape, focusing on roots and stone structures and the Brac’s majestic backdrop.

Michiel’s work on the tiny island resulted in the production of 35 dramatic black and white images that capture the uniqueness of the Brac in a way that few have seen before.

The National Gallery hosted Michiel’s work for the Enduring Nature exhibition held in Grand Cayman throughout the months of March, April and May; and now a selection of those works will be shown on both Cayman Brac and Little Cayman for the first time since leaving the dark room.

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to travel this exhibition to the Sister Islands and by doing so ‘bring them home’ as it were,” says National Gallery director Natalie Coleman. “Mr Michiel’s work offers a unique view of the Brac environment, one that will surprise, and inspire its residents.”

This travelling segment of the exhibition has been sponsored by Cayman Brac Power and Light Company Ltd. and Adco Power Ltd. with special thanks to Cayman Airways for the transport of the necessary materials to put the events together successfully. Thanks also go to the Heritage House and staff, Cayman Brac, and the Trust House and staff, in Little Cayman, for kindly hosting the event. All of the exhibited images will be for sale with part proceeds going to the Cayman Brac recovery fund.
