ARTISTS from all parts of the country gathered in Port Moresby yesterday to witness the launching of the garden art exhibition, The National reports.
The event is part of preliminary celebrations and awareness towards the staging of the 7th international orchid spectacular at the National Parliament grounds on Oct 2-3.
Works of PNG artists will also be displayed there.
Yesterday’s gathering was also an opportunity to unite, commemorate and recognise the work of artists throughout the country.
NCD Governor Powes Parkop launched the exhibition.
He urged the artists to use their talents and help the city commission beautify the city.
“We must use art to capture the dream of transforming this city into a beautiful place to live,” Parkop said.
