This launch night is an­tic­i­pated to be ex­em­plary and will cel­e­brate the cre­ative ex­cel­lence of our home­grown young artists who will in­ter­pret the po­ems of No­bel lau­re­ate Sir Derek Wal­cott and trans­form them into pieces of art.

The art­work ex­hib­ited within the MeCu­ra­tor Gallery will be avail­able for pur­chase and in­vest­ment. This special col­lec­tion will be in keep­ing with this years No­bel Lau­re­ate Fes­ti­val theme: “Cel­e­brat­ing Ex­cel­lence: 40 Years On” which will lead into the month of Fe­bru­ary when Saint Lu­cia cel­e­brates its for­ti­eth an­niver­sary of in­de­pen­dence.

The launch night will in­clude en­ter­tain­ment, food and drinks as well as the op­por­tu­nity to meet with some of the young artists, all within the mod­ern set­ting of the MeCu­ra­tor Art Gallery. The MeCu­ra­tor Art Gallery in­vites you to the launch night and en­cour­ages you to sup­port the fu­ture gen­er­a­tion of Saint Lu­cian artists.
