Over the years the Charman Prize has become a well-established highlight of how Bermuda’s beauty and culture is interpreted through our artists both professional and emerging.

Mr. Charman previously said, “I am most honoured to continue to provide this platform for our truly wonderful artists. As I have said in the past, we are privileged to see Bermuda’s soul mirrored in the work displayed in the Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art.”

    A superb piece Chris… well done!

    The detail is incredible and the theme highly evocative to those like myself, who came up in the simpler Bermuda of days gone by; when elders gathering at the dining table for cards was a part of the fabric of daily life.

    Congratulations on your well deserved win.
