I had the pleasure of accompanying Prof. Betty La Duke to Eritrea in mid-December 2016.
The sponsor of Prof. La Duke's artwork was the Commission of Culture and Sports of Eritrea and the artwork was exhibited at the Asmara Palace Hotel from December 21-28, 2016. Prof. La Duke's artwork include: 23 paintings on canvas, 3 wood panels and 18 sketches. According to the Commission, Prof. La Duke's artwork would tour the rest of the country in the near future.
Below are pictures from the event. Photos courtesy of the Commission of Culture and Sports and the video at the bottom is courtesy of ERI-TV.
