UVI Students To Exhibit Visual Work Display Of Art In Local Gallery

News / November 15, 2018

Visual artwork of students from the University of the Virgin Islands Caribbean Art1 class, will be on display at an exhibit under the instruction of Professor Danica M. David, at 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 15, 2018, UVI has announced. Art Thursday is a monthly activity on St. Croix which is held at Art at Top Hat Gallery, located in downtown Christiansted.

Geraldine Bryan, Earl Morris Jr., Matthew Perry, Hailey Tresch, and Tarika Woods are among the five UVI students who will participate. “This exhibit is also a part of the overall course learning experience and that students are able to understand that art galleries are imperative to Caribbean artists’ development,” said David. Their artwork uses Caribbean art themes which include pre-Hispanic, cultural nationalism, popular religion, and nature in the Caribbean and emanates from the course textbook Caribbean Art by Veerle Poupeye, according to the release.

To prepare for this exhibit, the UVI students have been painting with acrylic on canvas for several weeks. Since late August they continue to study sundry Caribbean artists.” Taking this course, Caribbean Art1 makes me confident in painting and sketching, said Tarika Woods, a student from St. Croix. “In Professor David’s class, I learn about many Caribbean artists living and dead and discover that the U.S. Virgin Islands and surrounding areas have many talented individuals,” said Hailey Tresch, an exchange student from the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs.

David, local mixed-media artist has been teaching Caribbean Art1 at UVI for two semesters and finds that students learn verbally from the lectures, visually by journaling notes, and comprehensively by painting.

The general public is invited to attend this free event. The students work will be on display through Nov. 22.
