For BNG and KBB
We would like to extend a big thank you to Meredith Andrews, who has generously donated $30,000 raised from the sale of limited-edition prints produced to accompany Flotsam & Jetsam: The Cost of Modern Living, to Bermuda National Gallery and Keep Bermuda Beautiful (KBB).
The exhibition, which recently closed, examined the impact of plastics on our oceans. The opportunity to use art to shine a light on important issues of our time, such as this, is a critical role that the BNG plays in the community. We were thrilled to receive support from BIOS with the purchase of two prints for their Bermuda Inshore Investigation Laboratory.
The works produced for the exhibition, which were made from plastics collected along Bermuda’s shoreline, won Silver in the Association of Photographers’ Open Awards (AOP), one of the most prestigious awards in the photographic calendar.
The public’s incredible response to the show has, so far, raised $30,000 for BNG and KBB, with each organisation receiving a donation of $15,000. We would like to thank Meredith for her generosity, Zurich Bermuda for sponsoring the exhibition and Colourlab Bermuda and Frameworks for their support.
You can help raise more funding for the two charities by purchasing a limited-edition print or series of your own at bng.bm/shop.
