'The Festival Art Gallery' was formed in 2009 by Kathy Yearwood and Arlette St. Hill.
The activities and paintings in this post give an idea of the sweat and pride that accompany the work of the organizers and the artists who contribute to the Gallery. It also attempts to capture the mobility, variety and liveliness of 'The Festival Art Gallery'.
The idea came about because of the lack of space for artists of all levels to showcase their work. It was also a way to take art to the locals who might not normally be exposed to art galleries.
