I am participating in the Affordable Art Show at the recently refurbished Queens Park Gallery where all the art work on display will be available for under $500.

Anonymous Charity Art Show



The Frame & Art Co is hosting the Anonymous Charity Art Show benefiting Jabez House. The show opened on December 8th running until 31st January 2018.  Here is the Online Album of work so far.  It is for a great cause and enables both established and emerging artists to support and show their work on and build your collection with artists who you might not have been exposed to before.

I have 4 pieces of art in the exhibition and there are over 200 original paintings created in diverse styles and subject matters are featured on 12" x 12" canvases and sold anonymously.

The artist remains a mystery, until after the purchase, when the name will be revealed. All paintings are sold for $375.00 BBD.

For more information, contact 271-6509.

Crane Village Gallery

It seemed like only yesterday that I was preparing for the Carmichael Exhibition, and showed one of my mixed media paintings.  

Emerge - Mixed Media Art - Amanda Trought

She is still looking for a home and will be available on my website.  I have some new work going up at the Crane, and it is more abstract utilizing different mediums on the canvas.

Layers - Mixed Media - Amanda Trought

Photographs don't do it justice, the colours are really vibrant and the paints have different textures within them, you will have to go and see it in person!

There are so many other Art events that are happening in Barbados at the moment with  Exhibitions, artists, photographers, art talks, workshops and interviews and more - check out The Barbados Visual Arts Events a monthly online magazine published by Corrie Scott.

There will of course be other additional events happening over the Christmas season and on into the New year, so keep your eyes peeled!
