Crop-Over is a celebration of Barbados rich heritage and the works of arts exhibited at the Queen’s Park Gallery at Pelican bears testimony to this.
The Central Bank Crop-Over Visual Arts Festival, staged in association with Republic Bank, is ongoing at the Grand Salle and the Princess Alice venue.
The aim of the organisers is to create a culturally interesting product that would allow artists not only to showcase their work to the viewing public, but to actively market it to local, regional and international audiences”.
The theme of this year’s Festival is Heritage and the Arts and it has 119 participants, comprising 49 two-dimensional entries (paintings); 32 three-dimensional (sculptures) and 28 pieces in craft. (DS)
