When Steel Talks

Historical Steelpan Paintings
To Be Auctioned


During the last week in August 2005 the collection of paintings by artist Trinidadian Joseph Charles on the history and development of the steelpan will be on exhibition and for sale by private auction. This collection was exhibited during last year's carnival (2004) at The National Museum and Art Gallery in Trinidad and Tobago for six weeks.  It had been originally scheduled for two weeks but held over by public demand.
