“Serenity,” The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman gallery’s first show of 2016, opens on Tuesday. The exhibition’s title, according to the space’s director, Chris Christian, reflects the mood of the majority of the artwork on display. Tuesday’s opening will allow visitors to mingle with most of the artists involved and will be from 6-8 p.m.
With 45 artists participating, and close to 300 pieces on display and for sale, this exhibition promises to be a big draw. Covering the gamut of photography, sculpture, acrylic and canvas, watercolor on canvas, mixed media and resin, “Serenity” will hopefully have enough breadth to engage all visitors.
Scheduled to run until the middle of April, the show has attracted the participation of several emerging artists, which is always a healthy sign of a vibrant and ever-expanding arts community.
The exhibition features the work of some new artists including Tessa Hydes, Annikki Brown, Shilpa Tagalpallewar, Lana Gilyun, Janice Brown, Megan Irwin, Caribbean Stone Art and Janice Brown.
Work by returning artists such as Kerwin Ebanks, Gordon Solomon, Randy Chollette, Nasaria Suckoo, Patricia Nicholson, Yonie Powery, Hannah Cook, April Bending, Cathy Church and Avril Ward will also be displayed.
