World Environment Day 2014 falls during the International Year of Small Island
Developing States, declared by the United Nations General Assembly to raise
awareness on the special needs of this diverse coalition as part of the global discussion
on how to achieve a sustainable future for all. The Lagos Island is not
an independent state, but it holds a unique character, an imprint gathered from
those who have passed through the island in the last few centuries.
For 3 days, plein air painters under the auspices of Plein Air Society of Nigeria,
art enthusiasts and students will assemble at Tinubu Square, Lagos Island then
disperse into different streets, alleys and docks to bring to life the Island in
varied colours. Selected paintings from the process will be displayed (on easels) at
the Kongi Gallery of the Freedom Park Lagos from 4pm on Saturday, June 7th.__ Plein
air, a French word which means ‘open air’ explains the method and process the early
impressionists employed in creating exceptional works of art that still remain with
us till this day.
The event tagged Paint Out Lagos Island which is driven by the Creative Management
house, NovelDRAW Creative, is the 3rd in the series with the primary aim of
promoting the art of outdoor painting in Nigeria, while focusing on the environment
and eco-tourism thus using art as a tool for environmental activism.
