An affair of the art at Liguanea

An affair of the art at Liguanea

The annual Liguanea Art Festival, which celebrated its 8th staging on April 17 at its lifelong home at Liguanea Plaza, is a labour of love for its founders Tony and June Wong. It continues to be one the the premier calendar events on the local art scene, providing established and new painters, ceramists, sculptors, jewellers and photographers with an outlet to showcase their work.

The release of this post is almost as late as Pree Jamaica actual arrival at the festival. Racing against the fading Sunday evening light, two hours was hardly enough to fully satiate the senses in a world of outstanding creativity and beauty.  Nevertheless, it was enough to stir emotions and inspire. Among the festival favourites on show this year were Owen Beckford, Phillip Supersad, Franz Marzouca, Howard Moo Young and Alphanso Blake. This year’s crop of young artists featured Kamaal Manboard, Andranique Morgan, Atira Robinson and Jonathan Schmidt.
