Welcome to Barbados Monthly Arts Events This is a completely free and unsponsored 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 creative event or a new piece of work 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

ALISON CHAPMAN-ANDREWS Bathing suit collection of 17 pieces and other collages, in the show TWO COLOURISTS with Tracey Williams huge flower studies and landscapes. At Gallery of Caribbean Art, Speightstown open 9.30am to 4.30 daily,Saturday 9.30am to 2pm. Open until March 6 th Online album of exhibition Although trained in English art schools, Alison’s” art vocabulary” was developed in the West Indian landscape, drawing in Barbados and Guyana. The rural environment of royal palms, fields and plants, became her inspiration and subject. As the subject was familiar and not “difficult”, she felt free to pursue her own interpretations and impose her ideas of colour and design. She is currently concerned with texture of paint and the use of collage. Materials used in these works include bark cloth, various weaves of linen, sand, sand paper, coconut cloth, buttons, polystyrene, a selection of Japanese papers, and various cloths. Acid free gel has been used as glue and most surfaces are covered in acrylic paint. The new work also forms part of an ongoing search for a new subject matter This exhibition features a series of “Bathing Suits’ “of the same size and format, a torso with arms outstretched, and upper part of the thighs. Most are on linen and have an element of collage; they are all female with one exception. (El Dorado, not illustrated) 12 are shown together in one large wall piece. The first painting was a mixture of the landscape, (a small painting of coconut fronds (exhibited here) show its inspiration, which then became the pattern on a suit she had seen while at aqua size. So they became figures in a swimming pool. This changed to bodies in the sea where they undergo a ‘’sea change into something new and strange (Shakespeare), and further develop into images referencing “Venus Arising from the foam” by Botticelli. In these the figure disappears into the sea, while a realistic sky emerges above the horizon. “I believe that the next painting produced will be the one to succeed totally. This continual search for a successful personal outcome is what it seems to be about. All I can do is keep making, composing, and working. Fortunately each painting, magically, seems to carry within it the germ of the next” Alison Chapman-Andrews, Dunloe Coach House, Dunlow Lane, Bridgetown. 246 429 4897 aca1@caribsurf .com

The Arts Directory Barbados

ARTS DIRECTORY BARBADOS How It Happened I have, for so many years, wanted to create a free online reference book where anyone, in any part of the world, may access the creative people in Barbados. I could not do this on my own and Kathy Yearwood heard of my idea, offered to partner with me and I happily agreed. What started out in March as a small book of what I thought might be a maximum of one hundred and fifty pages turned into a tome of over three hundred pages. A mixture of excitement and fear at what we had taken on. And here we are in December 2011 with a book showing off the talents in Barbados. So exciting. The eight month adventure began. Finding artists, photographing them and their work. From March 2011 to October 2011 Kathy and I collated the artwork, the bios and statements and travelled around the island garnering images and information. Large collections of artwork in homes. Convincing people who thought they were too old and forgotten and watching them smile as their work was photographed and having them talk about themselves so that we could create a bio for them. Literally slipping down the hills of clay at Chalky Mount to see an original kiln and spend the day with the potters. Temple Yard with the Rastafarian community where they are blessed with talent, especially carving, and then coming away with gifts of pineapples and avocados. Photographing in the rain with an umbrella in one hand and a camera in the other to get the right angles. Going to openings and craft shows and talking to many. Coming to my home, going to Kathy’s, and going wherever was needed. Meeting the different personalities in so many locations as I photographed many of them for their portrait photo for the book. Remembering some who have left us. A labour of love, learning and fun. The thank you part as I could not have done this on my own. Norma Springer who encouraged me to “take the book and run with it”. Kathy Yearwood who offered to partner with me collating and to create the book for artists in Barbados. Alison Chapman-Andrews for helping Kathy and I proof read. Amazing how much you miss no matter how many times we went over it. Sue Bain for offering her professional opinion and suggestions as a copy editor. Peter Boos for all the encouragement. Laura Lin Hutchinson for her introduction. Finally, the most important people, the creative souls who put their trust in Kathy and I to show them off to their best. I hope we have done this. Corrie Dec 7th 2011









It is our duty as creatives to introduce our children to collecting original art. Art sparks their imagination, stories can be told from them about the subject, children can use their imagination to create their own stories or name the characters painted to make them their own. Children should also learn that appreciating art is a way of saving is an investment. A painting does not lose value. I love to create Caribbean Children's art for all ages. I paint in acrylic on canvas in whatever size required. Hung separately or in panels that match together, they make wonderful visions for children. Murals for children are also special creating a wonderland in their bedroom or playroom. Consultations on your special requirements are by appointment.

TERRENCE R. PIGGOTT Born in Barbados, Terrence Rupert Piggott received his formal education at the Barbados Community College and earned an Associate degree in Graphic/Advertising Art. In 2007, he was accepted to the Instituto Superior de Arte in Cuba. Terrence’s new “Revival Series” paintings have been an evolutionary undertaking for him in terms of rekindling his flame with abstraction as well as a journey of personal “spirituality” with the artwork. This series takes a turn away from his ‘Barbadiana Series’ that are reminiscent of cane cutters and market vendors. In the ‘Revival Series’ figures and characters take shape and emerge from a densely worked surface built up with textured dabs of paint and woven tangles of fiberglass fibers. Washes of paint form the outlines of figures as they rundown the canvas creating a scene evolved from imaginary realms. “Creativity is essential to my experience and I must continually evolve if I am to find harmony with myself and my creator... vivo d’ arte... vivo d’ amore...” Terrence lives and works in Barbados. His work is part of numerous private and public collections around the world.

BARBADOS December 27 2012 - April 2013 Stavronikita Project, underwater on SS Stavronikita

FRESH MILK is pleased to announce their local resident artists for 2013! Visual artist and animator Versia Harris, photographer Mark King, playwright and actor Matthew 'Kupakwashe' Murrell, and filmmaker Cabral 'LARC' Trotman who will be collaborating with spoken word artist Adrian Green.

FRESH MILK is pleased to announce the selection of contemporary creatives taking part in its 2013 Local Residency Programme, sponsored by support received from the Arts and Sport Promotion Fund, Ministry of Finance, Barbados. The residency programme was first launched in 2012, beginning with a short but successful 5 day local residency in March, and has since included projects with artists who have been based abroad, visiting from overseas and from other Caribbean islands. The latest call for proposals was once again for local participants, and five artists working in a variety of media were selected for the available residency slots. The creatives are: visual artist and animator Versia Harris, photographer Mark King, playwright and actor Matthew ‘Kupakwashe’ Murrell and filmmaker Cabral ‘LARC’ Trotman, who will be collaborating with spoken word artist Adrian Green. The dates of these four-week long residencies are to be announced. The programme kicks off with Versia Harris, who is in residence from February 25th – March 22nd prior to embarking on her international residency at the Vermont Studio Center, USA in late March. To keep up to date with the residencies and our other activities, visit: and like our Facebook page at:

About the Artists:

Versia Harris Versia Harris is a Barbadian artist living and working in Weston, St. James. She graduated from the Barbados Community College BFA in Studio Art programme in 2012, with an award from The Leslie’s Legacy Foundation for the most promising student, and will be taking up a residency at the Vermont Studio Center in March 2013. She created a narrative of an original character to address the perceptions of self, as it compares its image with unrealistic standards. Her primary media includes pen and watercolour on paper. She also uses Adobe Photoshop to manipulate her drawings and create animations. Website: Mark King Mark King is a Barbados-based photographer. In 2011, he participated in a screenprinting artist in residency at the Frans Masereel Centrum in Kasterlee, Belgium. In the same year he was selected by Lucie Foundation for their E-pprentice program and paired with acclaimed photographer Roger Erickson for a six-month apprenticeship. Mark recently was artist in residence at Alice Yard in Port of Spain, Trinidad. Mark has called Barbados, The Bahamas, Brussels, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. home. His international experience directly informs his projects. As a constant outsider, Mark’s work examines the people he encounters during his travels as well as his relationship with an ever-changing environment. Website: Matthew ‘Kupakwashe’ Murrell Matthew ‘Kupakwashe’ Murrell is an actor, playwright, director and poet with special skills in film, photography and singing. He has successfully completed his BA in Fine Arts, with a special in theatre arts and a minor in film. His first national play debut 'Precious' came in 2005, written by Sir. Hilary Beckles and directed by C.M. Harclyde Walcott. He has done several plays such as 'Yellowman' directed by full bright scholar, Meredith Coleman Tobias, 'Dutchman' directed by famed Nigerian director, Dr. Esiaba Irobi, 'Odale's Choice' directed by Sonia Williams, and 'Looking Back at Sodom' directed by Winston Farrell, amongst many others. In addition to winning several awards regionally and locally, Matthew is also the founder of emerging Barbadian group Yardie Boy Theatre, which is dedicated to showcasing Barbadian/Caribbean stories. Their works are focused on social and political issues, and seek to be the voice of a generation. Yardie Boy Theatre’s Facebook Page: continued….

Cabral ‘LARC’ Trotman Born in Toronto Canada to Barbadian parents, LARC as he's affectionately known to most is a filmmaker, arts educator and community activist. After the year of the gun in Toronto (2005) LARC decided that it was critical to play a small role in creating safe spaces where young people could acquire skills while discovering positive outlets of expression. He started by designing and facilitating filmmaking workshops in low-income, inner-city communities where he began to link many of the current issues faced by youth to a lack of leadership/mentorship in the community. He also noticed a real lack of ancestral/family values and connections with the many gang related black youth he worked with daily. His community work intensified, spreading out to various public housing communities across Toronto from Community Centers to Elementary, Middle School to High Schools. LARC is developing a feature documentary entitled Hidden Bruises: HIV & Violence in the Caribbean, a documentary and awareness campaign contributing to the national and regional effort to reduce the prevalence of both HIV & violence against women in the Caribbean. He continues his arts education and filmmaking work in the Caribbean at the Errol Barrow Centre for Creative Imagination, University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, Barbados; coupled with his independent company Skylarc Pictures through the First Light Project Arts Education program. Website: Adrian Green Adrian Green is a Gold Award winner in Barbados’ National Festival of Creative Arts (NIFCA), a three time Barbadian Slam Poetry Champion, and two time winner of the Emancipation Roots Experience Show. Green represented Barbados at CARIFESTA X in Guyana and has performed to audiences in several countries, including the USA, Ghana, Grenada, St. Vincent, Dominica, Nevis, St. Thomas and Tortola. He has released two albums of poetry, “Random Acts of Conscience,” and “Hard Ears.” As the co-founder of Iron Sharpen Iron, Green has been instrumental in producing the longest running and most successful open-mic show in Barbados. These open-mic shows were designed to help emerging performing artists develop and have been instrumental in the uncovering and propelling of a number of young artists to the national stage.

MISSION The Mission of the League of Extraordinary Poets (LXP) is threefold; 1. To nurture those involved in the arts, with a special emphasis on poets and spoken word artists; 2. To edutain the public through exposure to our art, and 3. To use the voices of the artists to bring awareness to, and to actively work towards addressing issues of importance in our society. VISION The LXP was founded on the principle that no art form exists in a vacuum. It is inexplicably tied to society, culture and time in which it is created, and that artists can improve their skills, and inspire one another when they operate in a close knit community of other like-minded artists, committed to positive feedback and professionalism in pursuing their art to its highest and best potential. The LXP sees spoken word and other forms of poetry and lyrical commentary as art forms which are not only able to express the personal vision, emotions and stories of the individual artist, but also as vehicles to speak to social issues not addressed in other forums and to educate the public in the hopes of bringing positive change to the society in which we live.

“Art is about the core elements of our lives, manifested in what we see, hear, taste, make, read and write, wear, and how we move. It is the creative footprint that becomes the discernible difference between people of different countries and experiences. It is a unique cultural trademark and the magnet that draws us to explore the corners of the world in search of those aspects of life that make us different from each other. It is the goal of the Barbados Summer Arts Festival to encourage the celebration of these seven elements that reflect our cultural identity and as we do so, to foster their development, allowing gainful and sustainable development for their practitioners.“ Ronnie Carrington
