Saving our artistic heritage
February 15, 2003
The sub committee appointed by Castellani House to raise funds to acquire some of the paintings of the late Guyanese artist, Aubrey Williams, for the national collection has held several meetings and fund raising has started. It is hoped to acquire the first painting in the next few months and discussions have started with Eve Williams, the widow of Aubrey Williams, who lives in London.
Above the chairman of the sub-committee Mr. Vic Insanally looks on while committee member, Elfrieda Bissember receives a donation of US$500 from the departing manager of Le Meridien Pegasus hotel, Mr. Jean Guillaumot. The other members of the committee are Mrs Viola Burnham, Mrs Jacqueline Mendes and David de Caires. Contributions are very welcome and contact can be made with any of the committee members for that purpose.
