Art Space opens at NG

Exhibition Art Space opened Thursday at the National Gallery.

The show features drawings, photographs and original models by Caymanian architect Danny Owens of the gallery’s new facility currently being developed off the Harquail bypass.

In addition, a selection of the national art collection will be on display alongside information, art and images from the Gallery’s vibrant, and expanding, education and outreach departments.

‘The exhibition, will give the public greater insight into the development of a cultural icon – the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands and its many programmes – and provide them the opportunity to consider how vital the arts are to a healthy community,’ said a press release from the NG.

The accompanying Art Space lecture series will feature Mr. Owens as he speaks about his design and will include panel discussions on the significance of art in our community. The lectures will feature invited artists, NG Director Nancy Kirkaldy-Barnard and other cultural figures. The lectures are scheduled for Thursday, 24 July and Thursday, 7 August at the gallery’s Harbour Place location at 6pm.
