NATURAL FORMS: NEW WORK FROM 5 ARTISTS
The Waving Art Gallery is excited to have new work by Rhennel Joseph, LaVanda Mireles, Ingrid Newman, Julia Gubenkova, and Farihah Khan. While this show may be one of our most diverse groups as far as national origins, what is compelling is how the environment in Grenada seeps into each of these artists’ work. In curating these works we were looking for artists who were working with botanical/natural forms and faces and figures. This led to a beautiful convergence of artists who are originally from Grenada, United States, South Africa, Russia, Trinidad respectively. This exhibit marks 40 artists that have shown in the Waving Art Gallery since September 2017 and also happens to be the Waving Art Gallery’s first all women exhibit. It seems appropriate to have such a diverse exhibit of work fundamentally affected by Grenada as an island, here at Maurice Bishop International Airport.
Grenada Arts Council is focused on the development, promotion and education of our visual artists in Grenada. The Arts Council is appreciative to Grenada Airport Authority for providing a space where Grenada’s artists can have the important step of showing their work and getting feedback. If you would like to contact any of the artists you can reach them through Grenada Arts Council at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can further help support the promotion of our artists by crediting them and using hashtags if you post any pictures of their work! Hashtags like #wavingartgallery #artgrenada and #grenadaartisland allows their work to be more easily found online. You can also visit our facebook pages: Waving Art Gallery and Grenada Arts Council and let us know what you thought of the exhibit!
