Two artists will be representing Grenada at an international art camp in Haiti this November.
The organising committee of the 2014 Promart Atelier Internationale d’Art Haiti (Promart Haiti) has invited Andrea McLeod and Suelin Low Chew Tung to represent Grenada in this year’s edition of the international art camp. The artists both look forward to fostering artistic and cultural partnership with close to 40 participating Haitian and international artists.
Low Chew Tung’s attendance at this year’s camp, follows on the success of her participation in the 2013 Promart Haiti art camp, which translated into her attendance this year at two art residencies in Velika Planina, Slovenia (July) and Inter-Art Foundation Aiud, Romania (August). In Aiud, she presented a solo exhibition of works including an installation of Jab Jab drawings on paper, card and Transylvanian marble. Her work produced at Velika Planina, was recently exhibited at the Kamnik Community House, Slovenia.
McLeod has an MA in Global Media. She works with mixed media, photography, and video. Her work is primarily documentary in nature, with an interest in questions relating to identity and culture. She instructs in visual art at TAMCC, and for the Department of Arts and Humanities at SGU.
The camp organisers provide accommodation, board and supplies for creation, while the artists are responsible for travel and personal expenses. To raise funds to offset travel expenses, Sans Souci Arts Studio (SSAS) will host an exhibition of work by Andrea and Suelin, as well as Haitian colleague Prensnelo’s surrealist abstract works, at the Grenada National Museum, Young Street. The exhibition opens on 14 October, from 5.15 pm and will run until 18 October.
