On January 25, 2020, the Edward Gartland Youth Centre in collaboration with The Shore Club, Gilley’s Enterprises, Turks and Caicos Sotheby’s International Realty and Finishing Touch, hosted ‘An Exclusive Evening of Art’.
The sixth annual event was hosted for the third year, in the ballroom at the exclusive Shore Club Resort and featured a collection of art work from local and international artists with a special section for artwork by local youth. The all-inclusive event provided to guests a welcome drink cocktail, canapes and food stations, open bar, live entertainment by Sax O’Pans Serenade and a live and silent auction.
Thirty-three local and international artists exhibited in the show which included a wide range of different mediums of art from acrylic and oil paintings, photography, pencil portraits, ceramics, digital art and jewelry.
The live auction with auctioneer Todd Foss, of Grace Bay Car Rentals, was exciting and allowed guests the opportunity to outbid each other on selected donated pieces of art by the artists in the exhibition including works from renowned artist and Turks and Caicos native, Bradley Theodore, were all available for purchase. Four amazing donated stays/excursions from the award-winning companies, Beach Enclave, Amanyara, Grace Bay Club and Prive were also featured in the Live auction.
The Pop-Up fashion show by the W.H.O. and Vdysh Collection, wowed the patrons with a stunning display of creativity and originality. A definite surprise highlight for this year’s event.
The evening did not end there! Guests were moved from the fabulous ballroom and into the stunning courtyard where DJ Dayoh kept the party going and attendees danced the rest of the night away.
Galmo Williams, Founding Member of the Edward Gartland Gartland Youth Centre states: “Another successful showcase for the art exhibit and it was truly amazing to see the talents of the Turks and Caicos artists on full display. Gilley’s Enterprises is proud to be a part of this event and would like to thank the organizers for their efforts”
