Gallery Groundbreaking

Artist's rendition of the Cayman Islands National Gallery's future home

This week (Monday, 21 February) GIS Spotlight reviews plans for the new National Gallery, visits veteran farmer Errol Watler and takes a look at glaucoma.

Our first stop is the National Gallery where we speak to Director Natalie Urquhart about the gallery's new home. Hear why it is important for a country to have a place for its art treasures. Plus find out how the National Gallery is nurturing the next generation of artists.

Then, join us for a drive to the east where we call on life-long farmer Errol Watler. He tells how he started, how to get support from the Agriculture Department and most importantly, how he solved the fresh water conundrum - for good.

Left unchecked, glaucoma can lead to blindness, which is why the disease's increasing incidence in Cayman has doctors at the Lion's Eye Clinic worried. We visit to find out what causes it, who is most at risk and what people can do about it.

Produced by Government Information Services, GIS Spotlight highlights government's services and solutions regarding issues that concern and affect you.

The weekly programme now airs on Cayman27 at 8:30 p.m. on Mondays, and 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays. All stories seen in this week's show can also be found on the GIS Marketing and Communications website: www.gis.ky.
