This exhibition is curated by the President of the ASTT, Peter Sheppard and assisted by his team of Directors, Wendy Perreira-Aqui and Kirk Richmond and our beautiful Administrative Assistant Yia Lauren Gomez. The theme of the exhibition is, simply put, ME…a reflection of who we are. It was designed to bring out the best in each of us as we represent what Trinidad and Tobago has with all of its multi-ethnic heritage and rich cultural diversity.
As part of this exhibition, which runs in parallel to Carifesta itself, the ASTT also has several events during the next two weeks. On each Saturday (17th and 24th) there will be an artists’ talk at 4pm , followed by our popular Life Drawing Studio. On Sunday 18th August we have our POTTERS’ THROWDOWN led by master potter, Bunty O’Connor. Also Scheduled for Sunday 18th is the Gallery Hop from Carifesta’s Streets of the Caribbean. The highlight of our other events is our movie night when we will be screening the locally made film Bazodee, featuring Machel Montano. We have created a “Chit-Chat” lounge at the gallery and invite all visiting artists and art lovers to sit and chat, informally about the Visual Arts, thereby learning from other cultures and traditions. All of these extra events require a reservation, as space is limited .
