Like many tourism sector businesses, the island artists have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. As tourism ground to a halt in Ambergris Caye, the island artists were suddenly left with no means of earning a living and support their families.
Determined to survive the economic impact of this pandemic, the island artists have come together under the Island Artists Alliance to help its members during these challenging times and are calling on the support of the broader community for assistance.
The Island Artists Alliance has partnered with the San Pedro House of Culture to promote, support and encourage the work of San Pedro artists. The Island Artists Alliance will have available original art masterpieces for sale at the House of Culture from re-known artists including Papo Alamilla, Chiquitin Rosales, Hector Solis, Fred Trejo, Britney Alamilla, Carlos Chechem, Geovan Chacon and Noel Zac.
The Island Artists Alliance is reaching out to our guests who have traveled to Ambergris Caye and experienced the amazing warmth and hospitality of our island people. Any purchase of any of these fine painting will be hugely appreciated and will help keep the lights on in a home and put much needed food on the table of these artists.https://www.facebook.com/Island-Artists-Alliance-112779480582970/
