KOFIíS ART INSPIRES YOUNG ARTISTS AND ART LOVERS
Monday 7th December 2009

 



  Image collection presented by Alvin Kofi Ferris
 
Saturday, December, 05, 2009 – St. John’s, Antigua: Students from the Antigua State College, the Antigua Girls High School and the Mary E. Piggott School were just some of the visitors to the upstairs gallery of the Museum of Antigua and Barbuda, where they viewed the 26 images of the ‘Colour & Movement  – Images Past and Present’ collection presented by Alvin Kofi Ferris. 
 
Kofi is very happy with the public’s response to his first exhibition in Antigua: “The images have been very well received by the public and the feedback has been positive.
 
There have been many highlights during my stay here; however, one really stands out. I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting and working with young people and being able to share with them my knowledge of the arts. Their enthusiasm; there is a thirst, a desire to increase their understanding of the arts. This is great as it shows how important it will be to harness this energy and nurture it.”
 
He also had an opportunity to meet with fellow artists including Mark Brown and Heather Doram, as well as the Minister with Responsibility for Culture, the Hon. Eleston Adams and H.E. Chen Ligang, Ambassador People’s Republic of China to Antigua and Barbuda.
Kofi is very thankful for this opportunity to share his work here: “I have to thank God, my brother and his company SW17 Arts, Michele Henry and Claudia Papa and the staff of the Museum of Antigua and Barbuda, our public relations coordinator, Brenda Lee Browne and our sponsors – Mama Lolly’s Vegetarian Restaurant; A&F Manufacturing Co. Ltd; Williams & Associates Dental Clinic; Agenda Design Concepts; Kennedy’s Enterprise; Ken’s Club and Foresight Ventures International.”
 
Kofi returns to the UK to prepare for a series of practical workshops for artists looking at the fundamentals of selling art from sourcing materials to printing and publishing and the marketing of art.
