If you haven’t had a chance to visit the MAC4 Art Exhibit at the Montserrat National Trust you are in luck.
The Montserrat Arts Council announced today that the exhibit is being extended until this Friday, January 8, 2016.
MAC4: An Art Exhibition opened on December 18th, 2015 at the trust in Salem. The exhibition was due to close at the end of Festival 2015 but due to popular demand a week has been added.
“This inaugural event has paved the way for an annual celebration of our visual artists working on Montserrat and abroad,” a statement from the council read.
Featured this year are 4 artists working in diverse media:
- Franklyn Farrell “Franki”, who works with indigenous materials mined from the mountains of Montserrat.
- Hon. Premier Donaldson Romeo creates realistic renderings of people and vistas using charcoal.
- Everlyn White, an adroit hand with pin or needle, she works with fabric and threads to create decorative masterpieces to adorn or display.
- Vanastel Hussey “Eze Bongo” is a talented and creative wood whisperer. He works with premium woods (often scavenged from his back yard in New York) to create decorative and functional pieces of art.
Tradewinds Real Estate, Emerald City Shipping and Montserrat Shipping are the major sponsors of this event.
