Welcome to Barbados Monthly Arts Events This is a completely free magazine created out of the need to inform so that we can get to exhibitions, artist talks, workshops and more, rather than hearing about events after they have taken place. I encourage anyone with a visual arts event to get in contact with me at and I will add a free page for you. Let’s get the arts out there! Please, pass this magazine on to others and so help the creative side of Barbados get all the exposure possible. Corrie

JUNE THEME AT BPS WAS 'FOOD'. This month’s art magazine features some of the food related images. Broad or simple interpretations Hashtag it #bpsfood “Try to post at least one image a week, and join in the fun of sharing your ideas and images. It can be seeds, shoots, sprouts, plants, cooked, people eating, preparing food, food in a restaurant, food as a still life, macro, animals eating food, animals and plants as food, trees as food. ANYTHING and EVERYTHING to do with food. Go wild or go simple. Tell a story if you want to when you post.” BPS FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP June 30th, 3pm at UWI Cave Hill. Food photographer Jason Prescod will be working with the Education Committee to produce an interesting workshop. Jason will show some of his food photography photos and talk about lighting and camera techniques. During the workshop we aim to give everyone an opportunity to style a plate and to photograph a plate that has already been styled by an expert.

Our next featured participant for the #CaribbeanLinked V regional residency, taking place August 6th-28th at Ateliers '89, Aruba, is Barbadian artist Adam Patterson! Adam Patterson is a Barbadian visual artist and writer based in Barbados and the Netherlands. He completed his BA (Hons) Fine Art at Central Saint Martins, London, in 2017. His work emerges from imagining strategies of resistance in the face of neo-colonial encounters and desires that affect Barbados and the Caribbean region. His work has been exhibited at Tate Exchange at Tate Modern, London and he participated in “Sonic Soundings / Venice Trajectories,” a sound art project coordinated with the Diaspora Pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale. He has contributed to panel presentations at the “Caribbean Diasporic Dialogues” conferences at Goldsmiths University and the British Library. He has written for Fresh Milk, Arc Magazine and Sugarcane Magazine. Caribbean Linked is organized by Ateliers '89, Fresh Milk and ARC Magazine with support this year from BankGiro Loterij Fonds, Mondriaan Fonds, Unoca Aruba, Aruba Bank N.V. and the TPEF.

but the condition of the masked (the wearer of masks) is not inflicted by the mask itself but, rather, those who look upon the mask. if the public eye fears the mask or affects a right to power in the mask (like masks of law / order / justice in those courts ordered in ceremonial systems of masquerade) then the masked is indeed conditioned in fear and power. however, if the masked is seen as an object of humiliation or bondage (like a scold's bridle or even the public spectacle of the pillory that cages the wearer in a state of offence and shame) then the public's scrutiny condemns the masked to affects of shame. beyond the spiritual and virtuous connotations of masking (or the individual concerns of the masked in terms of what may be invoked on a personal level), the order of masks is concerned mostly with the public eye's participation in the upkeep of illusions, appearances and conditions. without the upkeep and interaction of social conditioning, the mask loses its spirit. it is not the concern of what is seen through the veil of masks by the wearer but, rather, the various radiances with which the public dresses and conditions the masked it beholds; airs of status, grace, power, visibility, mobility or a total lack thereof.

"Don’t ever let anyone tell you exhaustion isn’t real - that there’s no such thing as being overworked. Most of my friends are writers, performers and artists who not only work 7 days a week, but do so for very little money. Aside from that they are parents, partners, family members and human beings who some days just don’t feel like getting out of bed and having to face the world. Who have to find time to think, heal, love, create, teach, write, talk and occasionally sleep. Who sometimes would rather just do a 9-5 and knock it all on the head. These people are the smartest I know, the most principled and the most diligent, yet what they contribute is often undervalued and as a result they grow fatigued and doubtful which gives impetus to a mountain of mental health issues. If you reach breaking point it’s time to cancel work and find a spot to sit and bury your feet in the sand. Eat a fucking ice cream. Dust the salt off your skin. And remember what it feels like to be so small and alive."

BARBADOS BY JEH MACDONALD 1932 James Edward Hervey MacDonald was head of the Ontario College of Art in that year when he fell ill. Happily, he was sent to the breezy Atlantic east coast of Barbados to recuperate, and made some instantly recognizable landscape oil paintings, and some less obvious, more minimal ones too. Unhappily, he died on his return to winter in Canada: if he'd stayed on in Bathsheba, on his "blessed island", you feel strongly he would have survived, and gone on to be the island's most celebrated painter. As it is, there's something transcendent about the light and brightness of these tropical scenes that represents a fitting finale to his long career.

Jo Anne started doing ceramics as a hobby in 1982 and has operated a ceramics studio since 1987, providing services and supplies to people who wished to do slip casted ceramics as a hobby. She has taught many different finishing techniques to her students and learnt many more through experimenting, and trial and error. Juliana has been working with pottery and ceramics since 1992. She began by hand-painting local pottery with bold and colourful designs. After graduating University she made the decision to pursue her passion for art through the medium of ceramics. Juliana has worked with a number of techniques such as casted ceramics, handbuilding, surface decoration and raku firing. Juliana was first introduced to Raku in 2006 during a two week residency in St. Thomas USVI, with this exposure Juliana began mixing her own glazes, constructed her own kiln and has been Raku firing since then. /
