Minister Peter Sinon honored to open exposition by Seychelles inner islands artists ( Visual Arts artists from two of Seychelles inner islands, Praslin and La Digue, displayed their paintings in an exhibition at the Carrefour des Arts Gallery in the town’s capital of Victoria during the last Festival Kreol in Seychelles.
A total of 10 artists contributed 25 paintings to the exhibition which was officially opened by Seychelles Minister for Natural Resources and Energy, Mr. Peter Sinon.

During his opening speech, Minister Sinon stressed on the importance of a continuity in such activities, because it is imperative he said, “for our local artists to become visible not only on the local scene but on the regional and international arena as well." He also added that Seychelles Festival Kreol is the ideal opportunity to valorize all aspects of the Seychellois culture, including visual arts.

Brigitt Lubkeman Waye–Hive and Rita Morel represented the other artists Raissa Tirant, Allen Barreau, Jude De Commarmond, Terence Payet, Cyril Jean, Chantal Rose, Sheila Markham, and Alain Marie at the opening ceremony. They all participated with two or more works each.

The exhibition follows a similar one held on the island of Praslin during the recent Arts Festivival organized by the National Arts Council of Seychelles.
Also present at the exhibition were the Seychelles Minister for Tourism and Culture, Alain St. Ange; the Commissioner for Rodrigues, Serge Claire; Mrs. Primerose Obeegadoo, Chairman, Miss Mauritius; and Miss Mauritius.
