The top national artists who participated in the 2021 Jamaica Visual Arts Competition were awarded during the virtual exhibition launch and awards ceremony on Sunday. Some 75 artists from across the island received gold, silver, bronze and merit awards for their pieces, which are also being featured in the National Exhibition at the Jamaica Conference Centre in Kingston. The 171 award-winning pieces cover seven categories: painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, textiles & fibre arts, photography and sculpture/assemblage, and were created by artists as young as six years old. The event was streamed on the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission’s website and Facebook and YouTube pages.
