Seychelles sees former graduates of Visual Arts mount what they called their Traces exhibition ( Students who graduated for the Advanced Certificate and Diploma level in the Seychelles School of Visual Arts are showcasing their artistic and creative talents in an exhibition that opened on Friday, April 25, at Carrefour des Arts gallery in Victoria. Traces, as the exhibition is called, is a collection of image and objects containing aesthetic symbolic functional and expressive qualities that is reflective of those student’s individual identity, culture, and their environment is being displayed at the Carrefour des Arts gallery.

Traces, the chosen theme of the exhibition is also a combination of work ranging from Textile Fashion, Graphic Design and Fine Arts. In his introductory remark, Jimmy Savy, Chief Executive Officer of the Seychelles National Arts Council said that the exhibition is to celebrate the student’s achievements and their talent to make a difference.

“This event is an opportunity to explore ways to empower our young and gifted artistic people to participate fully in the life of their community and of their institution. I would take the opportunity to reiterate on the significance of art education as a powerful tool which provides students with a wide range of skills, knowledge, and attitude, enabling them to explore their innate creativity,” said the CEO of the Seychelles National Arts Council.

Mr. Savy outlined that the ultimate goal of the exhibition is to give confidence to young emerging artists.

“We want our future artists and designers to become more artistically engaged whilst being able to face various challenges in the future. It is important to note that many aspects of contemporary life require creative people, and since we are also living in an age of communication which contains images, be it in publications, films, and adverts, artists and designers have a crucial role to play,” stressed the CEO of the Seychelles National Arts Council.

When he was called to officially open the exhibition, the Seychelles Minister for Tourism and Culture, Alain St.Ange, said that visual arts can only have its rightful place in the arts arena when artists create.

“Visual Arts can only exist when someone gifted can transform through his or her artistic talents any materials into a powerful work of art. Dear students, you’ve been gifted with such magnificent talents, use them wisely and with our support continue to bring your work of art to the community at large. I personally commend students of Visual Arts for their achievements. The Ministry of Tourism and Culture will continue to work with you, and will give you the due encouragement to follow your career path,” said Minister Alain St.Ange.
