May 19, 2003
An art exhibition entitled Reflections in trembling waters: the enigma of vision, will be mounted at the National Library from today to Saturday, featuring contemporary works by five Indian Guyanese artists.
The exhibition, a presentation of the Arts Forum, will showcase the distinctive talents of Walter Gobin, Philbert Gajadhar, Betsy Karim, Bernadette Persaud and young emerging artist Ravindra Doodnauth, a release from Ameena Gafoor, Coordinator of the Arts Forum said.
"An innovative feature of this exhibition, curated by participating artist Bernadette Persaud, will be the contextualizing of the exhibits in a setting of traditional Indian artefacts and colourful rangolis, created by Indra and Faith Gobin," the release stated.
It noted also that the exhibition reflects on, among other things, notions of Indian "arrival" and the existential realities facing Indian Guyanese, 165 years after the landing of the Hesperus and the Whitby.
All are welcome to the exhibition which opens today at 2 pm and continues during the week from 9 am - 5 pm and on Saturday from 9 am - 2 pm, the release added.
