Art lovers have until Friday, 21 June, to bid on three pieces of artwork up for grabs at A.L. Thompson’s store in George Town.
Proceeds from the sale will go toward the establishment of a performing arts centre for George Town Primary School.
The auction is hosted by the New Self-Help Community Foundation, a nonprofit group aiming to help teenage youth develop a sense of self-worth.
The artwork auction features the works of Al Ebanks and Luelan Bodden, two of Cayman’s renowned artists.
The foundation’s CEO JC Connor said the group was “elated to partner with these two outstanding native sons, whose works are captivating and inspiring to young and old”.
Mr. Ebanks’s “Sumting Fishy” is an illustration of Cayman’s marine environment, while Mr. Bodden’s “Faces” depicts Cayman’s eclectic mix of nations and emotions and “Sting” is an abstract view of the possibilities of nature’s encounters.
The proposed performing arts centre at the school includes a “Black Box Theatre”, changing rooms and restrooms, as well as storage space for props and equipment.
The artworks are on display for viewing at A.L. Thompson’s. To bid, email [email protected] Bidding closes on 21 June.
