Among guests at the launch ceremony were President James Michel, Vice-President Danny Faure, ministers, executive board members of the National Arts Council, chairpersons of arts associations, art collectors and friends of the Art.

“I have seen some beautiful works of art today which portray the State House in a unique way. Our young people are very talented and should be encouraged to continue developing their artistic abilities. The National Arts Council should do more to encourage artists to exhibit their works more often, as this will enrich our cultural life and give them the opportunity to promote their work,” said President Michel following the exhibition.

The exhibition has been organised to promote the artwork produced last year for the 100th anniversary of State House whereby through a series of art days, painters and photographers captured their vision of the State House and its gardens. 

Seven professionals and eleven semi-professional painters, photographers as well as a group of art students from the School of Visual arts are showcasing their final works through this exhibition.
The exhibition will remain open until June 28.
Seychelles Nation will come back on the exhibition’s opening ceremony.
