Celebrating MacFarlane’s ‘theatre mas’
Celebrated Carnival designer Brian MacFarlane will be the centre of attraction at a special showing at the Art Society of T&T (where he is also one of three patrons).
From January 28 to February 16, viewers are invited to attend his very special retrospective exhibit entitled Brian MacFarlane: Through the years.
At this show MacFarlane displays and shares his history as a mas maker and iconic designer, and visitors will be able to purchase limited edition prints. On display will be some of his trophies, crowns, Carnival costumes, and other memorabilia from his winning presentations, a release said.
Admission is $120.
