Writers exhibit featured at BVI sugar works museum
Published on January 28, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

TORTOLA, BVI -- Local writers in the British Virgin Islands (BVI) will have an opportunity to display their works in an upcoming exhibition designed specifically to shed light on their contributions to the written word.

The Lower Estate Sugar Works Museum will feature In Our Own Words, an Exhibition of Virgin Islands Writings from February 6 to 28 on Tortola.

Organised by the museum’s manager, Olive Vanterpool, and writer and educator, Dr Patricia Turnbull, the exhibition provides an arena for local writers to showcase their poems, academic works, fiction and non-fiction books, essays, magazine articles and more. Thus far, over 50 writers have signed up to participate including many that have been writing for over four decades.

“We have been thinking about the local authors and the best way to share their voices with the BVI community. We really wanted a venue that could highlight their published works and we decided an exhibition would be ideal,” said Vanterpool.

“Through this exhibition we hope people will become more aware of the array of talent within our islands. When people think of art, they generally think of the visual arts, but writing is also an art form,” said Turnbull. “We are very pleased to be able to make the writing more accessible.”
