An art exhibition was held at the American Center in Colombo on Friday, June 12.

The exhibition, organised by the American Center in Colombo, together with the Centre for Unity Through Education or CUTE, showcased art work done by students of the Horowpathana educational zone.

The exhibition saw the participation of Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia Eileen O’Connor and Acting Deputy Chief of Mission Nicole Chulick.

Speaking at the event, Acting Deputy Chief of Mission Nicole Chulick said that art is a wonderful way to express yourself and show others how you see the world, and this exhibit is the result of a close partnership with the Centre for Unity Through Education; adding that they call them CUTE and the American Center.

She added that CUTE brought together students from different communities in Horowpathana to share their experiences and create art that expresses their hopes and their solutions for those communities.

Meanwhile, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia Eileen O’Connor said that these exhibits bring awareness to the many issues facing the Horowpathana area and it is an important and rare opportunity for the American Center to showcase art from outside Colombo.

Eileen O’Connor went on to say that they are very pleased and proud of this collaboration because it represents the values shared by Sri Lankans and Americans – unity, equality, freedom of expression and democratic values.
