The exhibition will be jointly hosted by the Ministry of Education and CXC and will run from 19 to 23 April at the Grenada National Stadium in St Georges from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm daily.

The CXC Visual Arts Exhibition features the work of students from across the Caribbean, including Grenada, submitted for the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examination over the last four years. The pieces on display will include Regional Top Award winners in Visual Arts two-dimensional and three-dimensional work. They will also include pieces which achieved Grade I in the Visual Arts examinations.

The objectives of the Visual Arts Exhibition are to highlight the creative work of Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) Visual Arts students; to expose students in the host country to what examiners consider Art of a high standard; to promote Visual Arts as a feasible career choice; to showcase the work of CSEC Visual Art students to the public and to promote CSEC Visual Arts as a CXC subject.

The exhibition will have several categories including Drawing, Imaginative Composition, Graphic Design, Ceramics, 3-Dimensional Design, Surface Decoration, Print Making, Leather Craft, Fibre Art and Illustrative Research Paper.

Students from secondary schools in Grenada are expected to attend the exhibition. The exhibition is free and is opened to all members of the public.

Honourable Franka Bernadine, Minister of Education and Labour in Grenada will declare the exhibition open at a ceremony slated for Monday 19 April at 9:00 am.

“Visual Arts is a subject which has tremendous potential for students to earn a living,” stated Dr Didacus Jules, CXC Registrar. “With our societies becoming more sophisticated and an enhanced appreciation for the Arts, the future for Visual Artists looks bright.”

Dr Jules added, “The Council’s redesigned website will feature a virtual Art Gallery where students’ artwork will be exhibited and sold using a bidding process similar to what is done on E-bay.”

The CXC Visual Arts Exhibition was started in 2003 and is held in a different CXC Participating Country each year. The last exhibition was hosted in St Vincent and the Grenadines in March 2009.
