NGCI Host 2009 Art@Governors

Dubbed the "premier visual arts event in the Cayman Islands", Art@Governors is set to please everyone who partakes as a participant or spectator this Saturday 31st of January.

Each year the grounds of the Government House is opened to the public to present a spectrum of artists and works in all types of genres including jewellery making, painting, drawing, stained glass art, traditional thatch plaiting, quilting, sculpting and more.

This year and new to the event, is the addition of Street Art by "Jonty" Jean Van Iddekinge who is working with the National Gallery's Community Mural Programme.

Join more than 100 artists, illustrators, craft makers, sculptors and metal workers to name a few, in an afternoon of exploration of fine art, music, culture and fun art activities as well as one on one interaction with your favourite, upcoming or developing artist.

This year we have set the event to the theme of "Making a Difference" asking all those involved to reflect on what we do or can do to make positive changes in our daily lives and society.

Join sponsor Walkers, the National Gallery and His Excellency, Governor Stuart Jack and Mrs. Mariko Jack for the 2009 Art@Governors from 1pm to 5pm, Saturday 31st January 2009.
