Arts in the Park exhibition commences at the Four Seasons Garden in Lilongwe

By Burnett Munthali

The opening ceremony of Arts in the Park, an annual art exhibition,  commenced at the Four Seasons Garden in Lilongwe on Thursday evening.

Visual artists gathered displaying their diverse artwork pieces at the occasion organised by Wildlife and Environmental Society of Malawi (WESM).

Art exhibition is traditionally the space in which art objects, in the most general sense meet an audience.

The exhibit is universally understood to be for some temporary period unless, as is occasionally true, it is stated to be a permanent exhibition. In American English, they may be called exhibits, expositions, the French word or show.

In UK English, they are always called exhibitions or shows, and an individual item in the show is an exhibit.

Art exhibitions are vital tools for artists at any level.

They allow you to get your work out of your studio and in front of an audience who can see and appreciate it.

Exhibitions are often an excellent opportunity to connect with an audience and sell pieces of artwork.

The main purpose or importance of exhibition is that they provide a platform to promote your product or service to a group that may have little or no knowledge of your services.

They also offer an opportunity to meet existing and potential customers.
