Art Expo ’11 reception at Cultural Center on Friday afternoon

POSTED: 11/18/11 5:22 AM

GREAT BAY – A reception will be held at the Philipsburg Cultural and Community Center on Backstreet today to close the Art Expo 2011. The reception begins at 5:00 p.m. but the exhibit can be viewed on its last day from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and during the party between 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.
The group exhibit was opened on November 11 as part of the official St. Martin Day calendar of activities. Over 100 pieces of artwork from aspiring artists to stunning finishes by seasoned crafts people have filled the center’s main hall and stage for about one week. The exhibition space was arranged as a basic gallery to house the works of the 20 aspiring, hobby, and professional artists. The list includes Akeem Adams, Artist Tihanyi, Marci Cooke, Mavis Verwoord, Randolph Scott, Lili Peterson, and organizer Urmain “Youmay” Dormoy.
“We had a nice stream of people passing through but only the minister (Dr. Arrindell) came by from the leaders of government. I didn’t see any other official walk in up to Thursday; not even the head of the department (Culture) I didn’t see come by. If they don’t show up on Friday all I can say is ‘they ain’t ready yet’,” Dormoy said with a chuckle.
“Everyone is invited to the exhibit on Friday, take a peak at the paintings for lunchtime, meet the artists, take home piece of art, or just come to the reception on Friday evening,” Dormoy added.
Earlier in the week the Oranje School took its primary school students on a field trip to the Art Expo 2011.
