The objectives of the Visual Arts Exhibition are to highlight the creative work of Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) visual arts students; to expose students in the host country to what examiners consider art of a high standard; to promote visual arts as a feasible career choice; to showcase the work of CSEC visual arts students to the public and to promote CSEC visual arts as a CXC subject.

The exhibition will feature works from CSEC visual arts examinations over the years, including regional top award winners. It will feature pieces from the eight expressive forms of the CSEC visual arts syllabus: drawing, leather craft, graphic and communication design, painting and mixed-media, sculpture and ceramics, fibre and decorative arts, textile design and manipulation and print making.

The CXC Visual Arts Exhibition was started in 2003 and is being hosted in Anguilla for the first time.
