The line-up of Bermudian visual artists who will have their work on display at Carifesta in Barbados next month has been unveiled.
Those selected are Meredith Andrews, Robert Bassett, April Dawn Branco, James Cooper, Rhona Emmerson, Alan Smith, Edwin Smith and Charles Zuill.
Additionally, Bermuda crafts by Ronnie Chameau, Stratton Hatfield, Milton Hill, Jeremy Johnson, Donna Pink and Nahtasha Smith will be showcased.
Heather Whalen, with the Department of Community and Cultural Affairs, said: “Carifesta is an opportunity for local artists and performers to showcase their talents as well as their good and services to the world.”
The theme of this year’s event is “Asserting Our Culture, Celebrating Ourselves”.
“This theme speaks to the connectivity of the Caribbean region brought about by our common history and heritage,” Mrs Whalen said.
Works by the selected artists will be on display for the duration of the event, which runs from August 17 to August 27.
