Growth is the second exhibition presented by Thru Contemporary Arts. It opens at the Caribbean Museum Center for the Arts in St. Croix and follows a recent, inaugural exhibition in Cologne, Germany. Growth is intended to expand conversation about the nature and boundaries of art in the Caribbean by exposing the public to a variety of approaches to creating contemporary art. It features a specially selected collection of contemporary art by present-day artists from countries around the world. From mixed media art to photography, embroidery, and digital works of art – all are represented in this exhibition, which is part of Thru Contemporary Arts’ permanent public collection.
Thru Contemporary Arts is a project of GETTHRU, a non-profit arts organization based in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago: www.getthru.org

This year Karen produced a wide range of acrylic paintings of varying subject matter. With scenes such as lush, green forests, colourful dancers, serene beaches and bright lilies on the water’s surface, Karen has expertly captured the beauty she sees in her environment.
Kristy is better known for painting Portraits that are privately commissioned; however, she also paints flowers, seascapes and more recently, landscapes and houses/ buildings. And, as with the variety of subjects, Kristy explores many artist mediums of oil, acrylic, watercolour/ gouache and pastels.
