Published:Sunday | June 3, 2012 | 12:00 AM

The Edna Manley College School of Visual Arts (SVA) Final Year Exhibition will be opened by guest speaker the Honourable Damion Crawford, Minister of State, Ministry of Tourism and Entertainment. on Saturday, June 2 at 6:30 pm. The exhibition which will be held on Saturday, June 2 at 6:30 pm is an annual, much anticipated event on the arts calendar, as the work of the next wave of brilliant artistic minds will be on display. The final-year art students are required to mount an exhibition as a part of fulfilling the requirements for completing the Bachelor of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Art Education programmes.

Curated by a curatorial board headed by the School of Visual Arts Director, Petrona Morrison, the exhibition is of the usual high standard and includes works in visual communication (graphics), textiles and fibre arts, painting, jewellery, sculpture, ceramics. The event attracts a wide audience, including government representatives, corporate executives and art stalwarts.

The exhibition is open to members of the public free of cost, and a satisfying mesmerising experience is promised. In previous years, patrons were mesmerised by concepts such as art on cars, a black empowered cultural walk, architectural inspired painting, shoe coffins, an animation cinema display. This year, the SVA team is hinting at an even grander show.
