Local talented contemporary artists needs more support from the people of the country in showcasing their talents where they can earn a living from.

 

That is the purpose of an art gallery show that was held last night in Nuku’alofa.

 

This art gallery displayed the works done by the Selka art institution group for the past two months as well as the opening of the Happy Sailor Tatoo Tonga shop which is owned by English parents, James & Angela Glover.

 

Angela Glover, owner of the tattoo shop says, they are very interested in arts and therefore wants to help promote this local group and to show the island people that they can do art in a contemporary way and that everyone can get involved in art.

 

Last night, Happy Sailor Tatoo shop hosted an art gallery in the studio which showed fantastic art from a selection of artists from the Selka Art Institution.

 

About 30 to 40 locals are in this Selka art institution from as young as 15 years old to 27 years old.

 

The art gallery show will end on the 25th of November.
