(CNS): The Young Patrons’ Circle (YPC) of the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands (NGCI) recently hosted an evening to enjoy the current exhibition, “tIDal shift – Explorations of Identity in Contemporary Caymanian Art”. Almost 200 YPC members attended the event, which included the premiere of the performance-art piece “Salty Kisses” by local artist Elina Zavala.

The YPC, an offshoot of the NGCI’s membership, targets young professionals between the ages of 18 and 35. “Our aim is to raise funds and bring awareness of the arts within our community,” said YPC chair Belinda Hart.

“In addition to these events being great opportunities for networking, they also allow members to approach art in a more casual and social manner, all while assisting us in the raising of funds that help maintain the many youth-focused and community outreach programmes NGCI put on that benefit our community as a whole.”

The Young Patrons’ Circle aims to host at least three such events each year.

Anyone interested in becoming a member of the National Gallery can do so in person at the facility or email the NGCI.
