Without a doubt, this event was on my calendar almost a year in advance. It really is funny how things change but that’s life and possibly another story. Though at one point it didn’t seem I would make it, things found a way to work themselves out and sure enough at 6:30 I was seated while looking up at a full moon???? and waiting for the opening of the Final year Exhibition at the Edna Manley College of the Visual & Performing Arts.
The Hon. Damion Crawford, Minister of State, Tourism & Entertainment was the guest speaker and did not fail to charm his attentive audience. His address, filled with humor also had a fair enough balance of seriousness to it as he commended the students and spoke of the importance of art then concluded by declaring the Exhibition officially open. I must confess that he lost me at some points but overall he gave a very good presentation.
I do now realize how much easier captioning would be had I remembered to buy the book (if anyone would like to get one for me … THANKS IN ADVANCE :D) but I’ll do the best I can …. :S Thanks too to Alex, my co-photographer for the night 🙂
It was great seeing some persons I haven’t seen in months, lecturers included (Won’t start calling names) and the turn out was pretty good! Can imagine how many proud families were gathered to see the end results of a long but rewarding journey.
Congratulations to the class of 2012! You all did a fantastic job and I do believe all that hard work, blood? and perhaps tears were well worth it. I wish you all the best as you continue along your creative paths. Hope to see some of these ideas become a reality as they are really great. If you believe in it enough GO FOR IT!
