Artists Set To Participate In ‘Carnival Of Light’

February 26, 2015

Art Walk, a self-guided artist experience set to be held in St. George’s, will take place on Friday, February 27 from 6.00pm through 10.00pm, with the event to showcase interactive street art, unique retailers, lively entertainment, and more.

Participating artist Gherdai Hassell said, “I am excited to be participating in the Art Walk because it is the first time I am showing my work publicly. The Art Walk gives artists an opportunity to showcase their work, and gives the public a great event filled with Bermudian entertainment. I will be showing my work at the Conscious Vibes Cafe.”

“I feel alive when I paint. It truly gives me meaning. My art gives me a outlet, another way to communicate my hopes and desires, my feelings. It reveals A piece of who I am every time I create.”

According to the Art Walk website, “The Art Walk promotes art in all forms including, but not limited to pottery making, cedar carvings, paintings, weaving, temporary installations, local film, singing, dancing, instrumental, and spoken word.”

“Artists will showcase their talents with performances, interactive displays, store front galleries, and perhaps a flash mob or two, within the idyllic setting of the St. George’s Town Square.

“On February 27th, 2015 a new and exciting art walk called Carnival of Light will fun filled event with more art, lights and surprises. Participating artists will be creative in their use of light in creating and highlighting their work, from glow in the dark paint, flashing lights, glow sticks, any thing that produces light.”
