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.

Finally, to wrap up our virtual exhibition, is this painting by Michelle Bowe entitled ‘Fisherman’. Michelle captures the intricate, undulating net as it is thrown into the water. Our nearshore sand plains and reefs are home to shoals of smaller fish often used for bait. As your eye trails up the piece, the light blues and greens make way to deep blues. Our peaceful beaches and clear, blue water attract countless visitors every year, and are enjoyed by tourists and Bajans alike. The island would not be the same without them.

We hope you enjoyed the art on display for this year’s virtual art exhibition!
