Agape Christian School held their fourth Art Explosion at Grace Gym on November 14 and 15 showcasing a wide variety of arts and crafts from artisans across the island as well as highlighting the works of students in the school.
A myriad of arts and crafts were set up in booths throughout the gym displaying the talents of Abaco’s artists such as woodworking, quilting, shell-work, paintings, jewelry, photography and more!
The weekend kicked off with Italian night which featured a menu of Lasagna and Spaghetti and gave early birds the first shot and selection of crafts and art items.
Troy Albury, Board of Directors for Agape Christian School, said “We invite artist to come and sell and display their works and we also offer to students to set up a table and showcase their crafts. We also display all the previous year’s BJC and BGCSE art projects.”
He said that they put on display a variety of art from all the students at Agape for parents and the public to see.
“The event exposes the kids to a variety of art and they get to see what some of the adult artists in Abaco are doing,” he said.
Mr. Albury said the money raised from the dinner and lunch sales are put to use to help with the general operating expenses of the school.
After having three consecutive annual Art Explosion events they took a year off before putting on their fourth one. Mr. Albury said that they are still undecided if they will put the event on again next year or wait a year before the next one.
