Feast of fine art

Topics: Art & Photography

Patrons braved the oppressive heat and satisfied their thirst for eclectic photography, drawings, paintings, sculptural pieces, ceramics and jewellery at the seventh annual Liguanea Art Festival, which was staged on Sunday, April 25 at Liguanea Plaza.

Connoisseurs of the fine arts, and even persons with only a passing interest, enjoyed the various art activities and exhibits throughout the day, as the Festival solidly staked its claim as one of the premier art shows of the year. The brainchild of June and Tony Wong, the event featured a healthy mix of fresh talent and accomplished artists. Over 80 exhibitors registered for the event this year, which was more that the number recorded last year.

Patrons had the opportunity to directly interface with the artists, many of whom enjoyed moderate to very good sales. Even as the shadows lengthened across the tents in the late evening, many persons were still feasting their eyes on the works if some of Jamaica’s best ceramists, sculptors, artists and photographers.
