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 we highlight a painting by Greg Dash entitled ‘The Great Provider’. Greg creates an allusion to Barbados’ agricultural past not only as an economic provider but also as the direct source of the food and nutrition to feed its people. However, in the distance is seen remnant forest and the palms which so often lined the paths to plantation houses. A reminder that development can be sustainable and we do not need to sacrifice our genetic resources for growth.
Tune in again tomorrow for our next highlighted artist and art combo.
