Celebration Art

Postby KarenS » Sat Jan 20, 2007 9:02 am

Celebration of Art, the National Gallery’s upcoming extravaganza on Saturday, 10 February 2007 will highlight all things art, including Cayman’s own traditional art forms such as gig spinning, thatch weaving and kite making.

Spearheading the Heritage Art section of the event will be local company Cayman Traditional Arts (CTA), which is owned and operated by Christopher Christian and Trina Christian.

CTA has become a staple at local events where organisers want to give attendees a taste of Cayman culture.

Visitors to the heritage art area will be able to see and interact with various authentic Caymanian crafts and heritage activities including rope making, cooking fritters over the old caboose, gig spinning, thatch weaving, traditional grating and kite-making.

Vendors will also be selling gigs, thatch products, graters (mini), local heavy cakes, local jams, mini catboats and other traditional Caymanian craft.
