The National Gallery of the Cayman Islands (NGCI) welcomed members and guests to a cocktail reception of the latest exhibition, “A Legacy Of Light – Early Watercolours From The National Collection.”

The exhibition boasts rarely seen watercolors from the collections of the Cayman Islands National Museum and the National Gallery.

Artists including Debbie Chase van der Bol and Janet Walker were in attendance, as well as family members of the late Ray McLaughlin.

“Watercolor is a medium that has become synonymous with the early development of the visual arts in the Cayman Islands,” NGCI Director and Curator Natalie Urquhart explained.

“As an art form capable of producing an astonishing variety of effects, from subtle atmospheric washes to brilliant tropical hues, it is perfectly suited to capturing the light and palette of the Caymanian landscape. The exhibition not only celebrates our unique natural environment but also pays homage to our vibrant cultural heritage.”

Guests enjoyed cocktails, live classical music and great conversations with members and gallery curators.
