Have you had a chance to check out Biodiversity Barbados’ Virtual Art Exhibition?

The Ministry of Environment is delighted to once again be working with artists in Barbados to highlight biodiversity and the environment on International Day for Biological Diversity (IDB).  IDB was celebrated on Sunday May 22nd under the theme is ‘Building a Shared Future for All Life’ with the Ministry’s second annual Virtual Art Exhibition.  This year’s Art Exhibit features 30 pieces from different local artists, highlighting the theme of ‘Nature’, and throughout the months of May and June, Biodiversity Barbados will be highlighting the contributing artists and their art.

Today’s piece, the penultimate in this year’s IDB virtual art exhibition, is this painting by Don Small (@teardon) entitled ‘Five Men at Six Mens’. Here, Don captures a moment as fishermen take a break. Our fisheries are one of the best examples of our use of biodiversity in Barbados as fish is an important source of protein on the island. Sustainable management of our fisheries is the only way we can ensure long-term use of this important resource for generations to come.

Tune in again tomorrow for our next highlighted artist and art combo.
