Art Legacy Un­veiled

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

‘Legacy’, an art and fash­ion ex­hi­bi­tion, in trib­ute to in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned Saint Lu­cian Artist, the late Hon­ourable Sir Dun­stan St. Omer, was launched at the Al­liance Fran­caise Pyra­mid at Pointe Seraphine, on Mon­day evening.

It was a mag­i­cal set­ting with fam­ily, friends and art en­thu­si­asts gath­er­ing for a cock­tail re­cep­tion to cel­e­brate the launch of the new ex­hi­bi­tion.

In at­ten­dance was the Gov­er­nor Gen­eral Dame Pear­lette Louisy plus mem­bers of the diplo­matic corps, of­fi­cials of the Al­liance Fran­caise, Hon­ourable Derek Wal­cott, Se­na­tor Ken­try Jn Pierre and Lady Cyn­thia St. Omer.

The ex­hi­bi­tion show­cased the fan­tas­tic paint­ings of Sir Dun­stan’s el­dest sons Al­wyn and Luigi St Omer and the in­no­va­tive cro­chet fash­ion of his daugh­ter-in-law Mar­cella.

The Amy Wine­house Steel Pan Orchestra from the Boys Train­ing Cen­tre fea­tured along with a mini ex­hi­bi­tion of art and craft plus a fash­ion show.

‘Legacy’ was an ex­hil­a­rat­ing trib­ute; an at­tempt in paint­ing and fash­ion to cap­ture the beau­ti­ful land­scape and cul­ture of Saint Lucia, whilst also in­tro­duc­ing ab­stract themes on cli­mate change, in trib­ute to a Saint Lu­cian leg­end.

‘Legacy’ ran for one week, end­ing yes­ter­day. The ex­hi­bi­tion was spon­sored by TEPA, LIME, Al­liance Fran­caise, By Char­lie, House of St Omer and St Omer Art In­sti­tute.

From the tryp­tych ‘Mas­quer­ade’ - a pop­u­lar theme with Al­wyn St. Omer.

Piece en­ti­tled ‘Mu­sic in the Mar­ket’.
