My Cayman exhibition at the Ritz-Carlton

Artist Avril Ward is one of several artists whose work will be displayed at the group exhibition, My Cayman, opening at The Ritz-Carlton Gallery Thursday, 19 November.

The show will feature other well-known local artists, including Charles Long, Randy Chollette, Maureen Lazarus, Chris Christian and Jo Austin.

Known locally as a painter who uses many mediums and styles, Ms Ward has recently turned her attention to sculpting and will be showing a series of hand-painted ceramic 3D works.

According to the artist, most of the works are of figures, depicting relationships. A few of the pieces are spiritual in nature and her recurring ‘dogs on the beach scene’, previously done in her paintings, has been rendered in several three dimensional sculptures.

Carley Jackson is also showing a number of his realist works. Painting in acrylic, his subject matter encompasses landscapes and subjects engaging in local customs like bringing in the catch.

Most of the artists have exhibited in group and solo exhibitions, locally and overseas.

My Cayman is scheduled to run until mid-February 2010. The show is open to the public and all artwork is for sale.
