Kids’ card artwork on display

Cruise ship visitors are being treated to a colourful and festive compilation of local artwork when they arrive in George Town throughout the month of December.

The vibrant creations are the collective hard work of 134 of the Islands’ children who entered a Christmas card competition set by the Cayman Islands Humane Society, which challenged youngsters from four to 16 to design a card titled Cayman Pets at Christmas.

One first prize winner from each of the three age group categories had their designs printed as Christmas cards for the charity to sell and raise funds.

However with such an overwhelmingly talented response organisers decided to share all the entries with residents and visitors alike, mounting an exhibition at the North Terminal in George Town

‘The quality, time and imagination that went in to these pictures are just amazing. We’ve got everything from moray eels in Santa hats to traditional nativity scenes with parrots and turtles. The judges had a very hard time picking between them and we are only to pleased the Port Authority has allowed us to display them impressing our overseas visitors with the calibre of talent young people of Cayman have alongside their genuine interest in animal welfare and support of a local charity,’ said CIHS President Carolyn Parker.

The exhibition can be viewed at the North Terminal, Harbour Drive throughout the month of December. The Cayman Islands Humane Society is selling the Christmas cards at their shelter complex on North Sound Road.
