INDEPENDENCE ART EXHIBITION: LOCAL – GLENROY AARON

Preview Evening: Friday 31 October 2014, 6.00pm – 8.00pm, Sugar Club

Art At The Ridge’s first art exhibition of the season celebrates Antigua & Barbuda’s 33rd year of Independence with a collection of paintings by Antiguan artist Glenroy Aaron. The preview evening will be held on Friday 31 October 2014, from 6.00pm to 8.00pm, at Sugar Club (Sugar Ridge) and will continue to exhibit there for a month.

The title of the exhibition is ‘Local’ and puts visual images to thoughts, ideas and concepts of what Antigua means to the artist. Glenroy Aaron attempts to identify who we were and what we are now by researching the things and events that helped to shape our culture, and by observing what those concepts have evolved into today. The journey through the different stages of the collection was eye-opening to Glenroy and has given him a deeper understanding of what it means to be Antiguan. The collection was conceived by what he saw as a need for truly local representation of the art scene in Antigua – art that is not necessarily local by the nationality of the artist but by the concepts they represent.
