The second edition of the MAC4 art exhibition is another eclectic mix of art which highlights the diversity of Montserrat’s artisans.
The Local edition of MAC4 opened Wednesday, December 7, 2016 at the Montserrat National Trust in Salem.
Trust Director Sarita Francis said at the opening she and her team were again honoured to host the display and commended the Montserrat Arts Council for the initiative to showcase the island’s culture in this fashion.
Chadd Cumberbatch, director of MAC thanked his team for their energy and support in realising the exhibition and the new projects coming on stream to promote Montserrat’s culture. In the works he said, is a fashion competition called Madrastique to show off how designers are using the national madras.
The four artists featured in this year’s exhibition are: Tabu with his collection of paintings depicting aspects of island life as well as iconic locations; Nicole Duberry with a diverse display of work from engraved bamboo cups to carved wooden tables; Cecil Wade with an astounding leather collection of wearable goods and Garfield with several remarkable pieces of woodwork.
Also featured is artwork from students of the local primary schools and the secondary. This collection is also worth seeing as it shows the future of the island’s art scene is in good hands.
The exhibition will run through the festival season until January 4, 2016.
