Caymanian artists on display at National Gallery thanks to Culture Ministry donation

Four works of national significance are now on display in the National Gallery as of Thursday (21 February) and it is all thanks to a donation by the Ministry of Culture.

The works form part of the National Art Collection.

And they are all created by Caymanian artists: Chris Christian, Gordon Solomon, Al Ebanks and Shane “Dready” Aquart.

During a reception at the National Gallery, the Culture Minister explained why supporting local artists is so important.

“I think, now more than ever, we have a vibrant artisan community and I think we need to continue growing this, we can never think it’s at a safe place and we need to continue to encourage the youth and inspire them and try to bring them along,” Hon. Dwayne Seymour said.

The cost of acquiring the artworks was not provided.
