Guam Art Exhibit VI
Tumon Bay, Guam – June 13, 2013 – During its four-year existence, The Guam Art Exhibit (GAX) has been a growing platform for showcasing local talent, including many new and previously unknown artists. Our island is teeming with unique and underexposed artists who seldom receive recognition for their thought-provoking and out-of-the-box creations. GAX has been working to encourage and develop Guam's diverse talent pool and local art community by giving artists an environment where they are free to create without limitations. The community fostered by GAX is comprised of artists from many different disciplines including commercial artists, painters, illustrators, graffiti artists, sculptors, musicians, and tattoo artists.
The Guam Art Exhibit is proud to present “GAX VI” which will be running from July 5th through July 21st. The show will host several events throughout its two-week run, including a Live Art Night, Portrait Night, and Poetry Slam, where people can come to participate and see the arts in action.
“GAX VI” is presented by DFS Galleria along with sponsors DNA Evolution, The Guam Visitors Bureau and Docomo Pacific -- a collaboration that showcases local businesses support of the arts and community building with Guam’s talented creators.
The preservation and encouragement of these works of art is important in our community because they are a reflection of our dynamic culture. “With our GAX events, we've been able to expose modern cultural movements that have had less visibility on our island, helping to bring forward a fresh outlook to the art scene while maintaining reverence for the past.” Joshua Agerstrand - GAX Curator
