Grenada Arts Council

The Grenada Arts Council, following the success of their Annual Open
Exhibition, decided to hold a juried show. News of this welcome
event arrived at short notice. I was trying to force a three painting
series, as stipulated in the rules,which resulted in a lot frustration,
an errant muse and a headache. Then I remembered these small
illustrations that I have been working on, with a view to submitting
them for use in the tourist, hospitality and agricultural sectors.
Nothing ventured etc.

Cocoa pods and beans drying on the galvanise
Acrylic on canvass 8"x8" Sold

Nutmeg tree Acrylic on Canvass 8"x8

'Saffron' (turmeric) Flower, stem and tubers
Acrylic on canvass 8"x8"

The show runs until the end of the month in the old Bain's sports shop in Young Street in St George's, where you will be able to see, and have the opportunity to purchase, an eclectic delight of work by local artists.
