The Benefits of Art 2017

Art has been hard to define because of all the ways one can go about making it. However, it can be generally said that it plays a large part in enriching lives by making us more thoughtful and well-rounded human beings. This is the theme of the latest APS Bank publication, titled Benefits of Art.

Launched at the APS Head Office in Swatar, the book features photographs by Dennis Cutajar, Oriella Formosa Carabez, Stefan Cachia, Susanna Diacono and Tonio Polidano, as well as a key essay by academic artist, Hilary Spiteri. To complement the book, the Bank also launched a photography exhibition which will remain open until May 31, 2017.

Book editor and exhibition curator Kevin Casha said that “this initiative pays testament to the development of work that is inclusive rather than exclusive, work that creates possible links of interaction between members of the Maltese community.” E.P. Delia, Chairman at APS Bank, commented as follows about this latest milestone in the Bank’s CSR programme: “This project offered an opportunity for the camera to substitute voice and sound, paint brush, or clay and chisel”.

Selling at €35 per copy, the publication can be purchased from Trolleymania (http://apsbank.trolleymania.com/the-benefits-of-art). The public is invited to visit the exhibition at the APS Bank Centre in Swatar between Mondays and Fridays from 8.30am to 1pm and on Saturdays from 9.30am to 11.15am. For further information, one can email on info@apsbank.com.mt or call on 21226644.
