Following the successful launch last year, The Montserrat Arts Council, in association with the Montserrat National Trust, will host MAC4: A local Art Exhibition from Weds 7th December, 2016. This annual celebration of our visual artists will feature the following 4 creatives:

  • Garfield Browne, a gifted joiner who moves wood beyond function into the area of art.
  • Cecil Wade, a skilled leather craftsman, creating exciting pieces decorative and functional.
  • Nicole Duberry, a creative that moves effortlessly between media; she bends wood, wire, bamboo and fabric to create lovely keepsake pieces.
  • Kelvin “Tabu” Duberry is the consummate Caribbean mystic, a mixed media artist. His work reflects the mind of the ever searching. His offerings, at times linear, juxtaposed to the abstract.

One of the aims of the Arts Council is to stimulate creativity and generate an appreciation for the Visual Arts in youths. This year, alongside the 4 featured adult artists, young people will be included in the exhibition. On display will be pieces from students from Look Out Primary School, Lighthouse Community Academy, Brades Primary School, St. Augustine R.C. Primary School and the Montserrat Secondary School.

The exhibition opens on Wednesday 7th December at 4:30pm at the Montserrat National Trust in Salem and runs for the duration of Festival 2016. Tradewinds Real Estate is a major sponsor of this event.
