Some consider collecting fine art pieces as a preserve for the rich and wannabes. So, in most cases the average Ugandan will abscond from any such functions, thus rendering the artists’ work redundant. Those with the money sometimes are cooped up in offices with no time to visit art galleries.

In a bid to market artists’ work to buyers and promote a culture of collecting art among Ugandan corporates, fireworks Advertising started the Annual Art Exhibition in 2009 to recognise the efforts and achievements of local artists.

The event supports upcoming creative talents through imparting marketing and branding expertise and exposes them to new markets. It also mobilises the corporate world to appreciate and support upcoming creative artists by adorning corporate homes and offices with local art.

In line with this goal, fireworks will be hosting the 4th edition of the fireworks Art Exhibition under the theme “Uganda Art 50” on December 7 – 8, 2012 at Kabira Country Club.

The theme of course spells the decades, through which the different genres of art have journeyed, taking up prime position in offices, homes, museums and even on the streets.

The exhibition is meant to raise appreciation of Ugandan art and explore untapped art potential, create a link between artists and potential art buyers and also showcase the value of art in the office environment, workplace design and overall corporate image.
