The exhibit features a wide array of pieces, from pre-Columbian utilitarian utensils made by Amerindians, to paintings, sculptures and leather and fiber objects created by contemporary artists.

And the South American nation’s cultural diversity and heritage of migration through the leather sculptures of Winston Strick, one of which was recently acquired by the IDB; the paintings by Carl Anderson; and the paintings and sculptures of Philip Moore, one of the most intriguing and multi-faceted artists of the entire Caribbean, still living and working in Guyana.

Also on display are some pieces by pre-independence art pioneers, Stanley Greaves, Patrick Barrington, Hubert Moshett and Ronald Savory as well as the fiber work of three promising young students at the Art Faculty of the University of Guyana: Carlesta Sutton, Stacia Pitt, and Brian George.

‘The Arts of Guyana: A Multicultural Caribbean Adventure,’ will run through August 11 and coincides with Guyana’s 40th year of independence from England and the commemoration of Caribbean American Heritage Month. – Hardbeatnews.com
