Photos: Sarai Hines Holds Fundraising Exhibit

June 11, 2012

Budding artist 17-year-old Sarai Hines held an art exhibit last night [June 10] at the Coco Reefs Hotel to help raise funds in furthering her education. The teenager has already received an $8,000 scholarship, and the exhibit last night helped to raise additional funds needed for her education.

Miss Hines expressed her gratitude to the assistance and support of Education Minister Dame Jennifer Smith, newly appointed Transport Minister Walter Roban and Lt. Col. David Burch in her first art show.

Miss Hines has spent time on the Spirit in Bermuda, and was friends with 22-year-old Adam Goodwin who died following a traffic accident in 2010. She says she was inspired by him, and has taken the time to paint his portrait [seen above].

Also inspired by her art teacher Fiona Murdoch, Miss Hines already has a burgeoning business decorating sneakers and has ambitions to become an art teacher.

She has been accepted into the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston where she will further her education in becoming an art teacher and help inspire others in the arts. You can join Miss Hines’ Facebook page here.

    WooHoo!! Go Sarai! Proud of you girl!!!


    It’s people like 17-year-old Sarai Hines that make me PROUD to be a Bermudian! This girls is EXTREMELY talented and she needs as much exposure as possible AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! This girl should be on the next plane smoking out of Bermuda all expenses paid! She is a PRECIOUS BERMUDIAN GEM and we as a community need to encouarge, support and protect that especially in a time when there is so much negativity surrounding Bermuda’s youth! It’s so exciting to see a young Bermudian THRIVING in something positive! This girl can go a long long way ! I know talent when i see it and I am telling Bermuda that Sarai Hines has it! Now just imagine how far she could go with the right teachings and education coupled with her own raw natural ability ! Not too many artist would be able to touch her! As a matter of fact i better buy something from her now b4 her art becomes too expensive and i can’t afford it! LOL
