ANTIGUA SAILING WEEK MARINE ART & PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION
Thursday 15th March 2012
Sailing by Felicia Atanasiu
For the first time ever, Antigua Sailing Week will be holding an art exhibition at the opening of the week in 2012, in conjunction with Art At The Ridge. 

The exhibition will showcase the best in marine art and photography by well-known Antiguan artists and photographers.
 
Art At The Ridge supports and promotes local art and crafts, and Antiguan artists and craftspeople. 

Owner Joy James, who has worked in an art gallery in London (UK), is thrilled to be involved in this joint venture. Since opening up a small flagship art gallery at Sugar Ridge Village last year (in the west of the island), James is keen to highlight and promote the island’s artistic talent as part of Antigua & Barbuda’s overall appeal.

 “This event will highlight even further the emergence of Antigua & Barbuda as a visual arts hot spot in the Caribbean. For years Antigua & Barbuda has been the home of a large and growing art community, whether locally-born or Antigua-based. 

We have an amazing wealth of creative talent on this small island - the diversity and range of artwork is extremely impressive, and is perhaps a reflection of our richly multicultural and multiracial society.”
 
The Marine Art & Photography 2012 exhibition will be held on Sunday 29 April 2012 as Antigua Sailing Week opens, from 3.00pm to 10.00pm, at the Copper & Lumber Store Hotel in Nelson’s Dockyard. It will feature artwork and photography by well-known Antiguan artists and photographers, including Jan Farara, Gilly Gobinet, Naydene Gonnella, Alexis Andrews and Lucy Tulloch.
