FOR CARIBBEAN COLOUR 2001, THE WINNERS ARE…

The St. Thomas-St. John Arts Council's 13th annual Caribbean Colour fine art exhibition was judged in five categories, including Student Art. Double honors for a single work went to St. John artist Kimberly Boulon for her portrait of Liston "Matey" Sewer.
Boulon took both the People's Choice Award (based on balloting by those who attended the opening reception on Sunday) and first place in the "Everything Else" category, which encompasses everything other than oil and water media, three-dimensional entries and student works. Her winning pastel, titled "Exultation," depicts steelpan instructor Sewer conducting the Burning Blazers of Bertha C. Boschulte Middle School.
The show, comprising 80 works by adult artists and 17 by students, will hang through Saturday in Pistarckle Theater at Tillett Gardens. It's open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. All of the artwork is for sale.
The entries were judged by Marcia Goldenstein, professor of drawing and painting at the University of Tennessee. This was just the second time in the history of Caribbean Colour that the Arts Council was able to bring a judge from the states, according to council president Susan Edwards. She said doing so this year was made possible by the generosity of the show's sponsors, the Virgin Islands Council on the Arts (VICA), the West Indian Co. Ltd. and Wireless World.
Goldenstein also taught an all-day painting workshop in Tillett Gardens.
