The Commonwealth Council for Arts and Culture is now looking for a venue for its upcoming Women's Exhibit this March, according to traditional and visual arts coordinator Darrell Moteisou.
The Women's Exhibit is one of the three major exhibits hosted annually by the council to help local artists promote their artwork and find suitable markets for their products. The other two are the Cultural Heritage and Arts Pacifica Exhibit as part of the Cultural Heritage Month celebration in October and the Christmas Exhibit in December.
Moteisou said these exhibits serve as a platform where traditional and contemporary artists in the CNMI can showcase their creativity and passion for art.
In January 2012, the council added another exhibit-the Island Artist Exhibit-but Moteisou said the lack of venue is the main reason why they were unable to host it this month.
Finding a venue for its annual exhibits has been a challenge for the council, he added. Should they find a suitable venue, Moteisou said the council will squeeze in all four exhibits in their 2013 schedule.
“We're looking for a venue that is strategically located in proximity to our tourists and with enough space to accommodate the works of our artists,” he told Saipan Tribune.
Moteisou is asking hotels and other establishments to assist the council by providing them a venue for the exhibits.
“I plan to meet with hotel managers in the coming days and invite them to host the exhibits,” Moteisou added.
