A number of Guyanese photographers have come together to stage an exhibition, titled Visions 2016, following the cancellation of the Capture Guyana competition which was advertised by the government. The exhibition will be held from Monday at Fitz-Gerald House on Hadfield Street.
“To the best of our knowledge this is the first exhibition of its kind, featuring a total of 17 Guyanese artists who are presenting 47 of their works,” said Michael Lam, the organiser of the exhibition.
“Over the course of the past 10 years, photography has developed rapidly in Guyana thanks to the relatively ease of use and availability of digital cameras.
“While in the past, notable artists such as Bobby Fernandes have pursued through much dedication the art and craft of photography, in difficult circumstances of scarcity; our new generation have found their footing thanks to the easing of many constraints that may have made this artistic endeavor more of a challenge,” Lam stated in a press release.
The exhibition is being curated by Karran Sahadeo.
Fitz-Gerald House was made available for the exhibition by Deane-Hughes Designs and Ms. Elizabeth Deane-Hughes, who will have works on exhibition.
Lam said the directors and management of Bounty Supermarkets have expressed profound admiration for the project and have enlisted as sponsors, recognising the exhibition allows the featured photographers “to display their creativity and talent, and share their art with Guyana and beyond.”.
The exhibition is open to the public during the hours of 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Monday to Friday from June 20-30.
