264 artists’ paintings that featured in Fiji Arts Council’s National Fine Arts Exhibition will have 10% of sale directed to TC Yasa relief efforts.
Fiji Arts Council Director, Peni Cavuilagi says they held their National Fine Arts Exhibition on the week TC Yasa hit, and later decided to assist in the relief efforts from the exhibition’s proceeds.
Artists were also part of the US Embassy in Fiji’s Art in Embassies Exhibition that collaborated with Fiji Arts Council to showcase 34 local paintings alongside 11 paintings from the United States.
US Ambassador to Fiji, Joseph Cella says America and Fiji are showcasing their principles and reflecting on how there is so much in common, especially through art.
Cella hopes this relationship is maintained and expanded as there are many more creative opportunities that lie ahead for the two countries.
Cavuilagi says he is grateful for the Embassy’s support towards local artists and to address issues on the development of art in Fiji.
