The Cultural Development Foundation (CDF) is paying special recognition to master sculptor, Vincent Joseph Eudovic, who is the CDF’s honouree in the 2019 Cultural Icon Series.
The recognition of Eudovic, arguably Saint Lucia’s most acclaimed sculptor, is in the form of a Sculpture Exhibition now on the second floor of Baywalk Shopping Mall, Rodney Bay.
The Sculpture Exhibition, curated by Milton Branford Jr., features a new collection of original small and large sculpture pieces by Eudovic that capture moments of life: a current time and place, his thoughts and sentiments through artistic representation.
Admission is free and the exhibition is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Wood carver Vincent Joseph Eudovic was born in Babonneau on April 15, 1942. He began carving at a very early age and won his first exhibition contest at age 12; it was from this time Eudovic knew what his life’s work would be.
He is the father of Jallim Eudovic, another outstanding Saint Lucian sculptor, whose “All In” bronze monument was unveiled near the Castries Waterfront earlier this month.
