Mandeville , Manchester — The annual Mandeville Art Fair held recently over three days at the St John Bosco Auditorium in Hatfield, just west of here was highly successful, organisers say.

“Overall it was great”, educator and planning committee member, Deidrie Hudson-Sinclair told Jamaica Observer Central.

Exposure of Jamaican artists apart, the art fair now 27 years old, raises funds for good causes, including funding for young artists in training at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing arts.

“I don't know if we made more than last year but it was good,” Hudson- Sinclair said of the art fair held November 8-10.

She said that student artist Richard Gayle of the Edna Manley College is this year's beneficiary of the Julia Lyn Scholarship awarded annually.

Hosted by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Mandeville, the art fair was the brain child of Bishop Paul Boyle and got started with the help of friends and supporters in 1991.

Organisers say there were more than “500 pieces of art in various formats of artistic expression” on display and sale at the recent fair.
