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 admire this piece by Martina Pilé Zahles entitled ‘In De Cool’. In the background, the turbulent Atlantic Ocean crashes against the rocks as a lady in a pink dress shades under a tree on the roadside. Trees cool their surroundings by providing shade and through evapotranspiration offering a welcome relief to all from the oppressive heat of the sun.

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