BARBADOS ARTS EVENTS March 2014


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 corriescott@gmail.com 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

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.

YASMIN VIZCARRONDO


‘LOVING BARBADOS’ by Yasmin Vizcarrondo Opening reception, Friday, 14th March, 6pm-8.30pm at The Drift Barbados , Holetown. Exhibition ends April 23rd.

Yasmin Vizcarrondo was born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1958. Barbados became her home in 1998. She was inspired by her grandfather, a German immigrant, who encouraged her to paint from childhood. This first solo exhibition will be dedicated to the memory of her granddad, Hugo Matthes, who loved and painted Barbados too. Here in Barbados, her painting has been transformed from something casual to a way of life. This island has motivated and inspired Yasmin in unimaginable ways. In 2009, she joined Indrani Whittingham’s art group sessions. This started her “re-encounter” with art; creating an explosion in her senses, perceiving more vividly the extraordinary colors and images of the Caribbean. She has attended workshops with Fielding Babb, Heidi Berger, Ariel Lyons, Omowale Stewart, Jack Richardson, Erik Feely, Leandro Soto and Launi Lucas. Her work has mainly been shown in the Bridgetown Gallery (now closed). Currently her work can be seen at the Gallery of Caribbean Art, and Frangipani Art Gallery. She uses oils and acrylics to portray her impressionistic and painterly style. She is a plein air artist, going on site and absorbing the culture, capturing the unique landscapes and people. Exploring different techniques, using loose strokes and palate knife, she has put together a body of work for her first Solo exhibition, calling it “Loving Barbados “. yasminvizb@gmail.com

RIVENIS BLACK DISCORDIA in hard cover The hardcover will be 330 pages with standard comic dimensions and sewn binding. The campaign is seeking to raise funds to cover the cost of printing a run of between 500 and 1500 copies as well as shipping. The comic is a very personal work of creator Rivenis who has been working on the series since 2009. It is his attempt to interpret the human condition and force us to question our reality as conscious beings. The saga has developed a small cult following due to its unapologetic nature, unique visuals and rampant unpredictability. It has been compared to other works in this vein such as Neil Gaiman’s Sandman, the work of H.P Lovecraft, Lewis Caroll’s Alice in Wonderland and most recently Pendleton Ward’s Adventure time cartoon series.

Diskordia; Surreal, Dark and Captivating The fundraising campaign for Diskordia: Feels like falling is live on Indiegogo. Funds will go toward printing a run of deluxe Hardcovers collecting volume 1; the first 9 issues of the series that were initially published on the creator Rivenis’ blog http://diskordiacomic.blogspot.com/ and later on Comixology.

Campaign link: http://igg.me/at/Diskordia/x/6161108 ‘Everything you think you know about the world is at worst a lie and at best simply a pale facet of a truth so terrifying and overwhelming that madness is preferable.’ Diskordia is a surreal dark fantasy comic that explores themes such as the nature of reality, consciousness and self-determination. It does so with equal doses of hilarity and mind numbing horror. The main story follows Jackal Black, a cynical and sarcastic young man as he is yanked from his dull life into the bizarre dreamtime; a transit hub between dimensions. He will travel through these strange and varied realms encountering curiously odd creatures and terrifying foes while discovering the true horrific and baffling nature of the world he thought he knew.

'The Coral Stone Village Meeting' by Unknown artist Each piece which has been positioned and topped with other pieces of coral stone. In rows. The front row close to the sea appear to be 'the elders' as they have a little more space between themselves and the 'people'. Created by an unknown NCC worker, male, who came during the week to Batts Rock Bay and while he cleans he is created these 'meetings' of coral. There were a few others started along the beach but this one had the largest 'crowd'. Sad to report that thuggish vandals have knocked this wonderful installation down.

NEVILLE OLUYEMI LEGALL “The concept behind the 3 Decades Exhibition is to celebrate my 30 years membership in the Barbados Arts Council. Upon graduating from the Barbados Community College I needed a gallery where i could exhibit my paintings and the BAC provided me with that and much more. I met and developed friendships with several leading artists and through the years I I've mounted numerous solo and group exhibitions at the Pelican Art Gallery, my home away from home. In this exhibition I will be showing some works from the decade of the 1980s, the 90s and the new millennium. In addition, several new pieces previously unseen by the public will be on view. “ ARTIST STATEMENT “Today man is enslaved. Shackled by the pressure of survival and belonging in a materialistic society. Constant hustle and chaos precludes seeing; thus many people fail to observe and experience the treasures of nature. When I paint I usually extract from the colour, rhythm and shapes of my environment, which I carefully observe. I am not concerned about current trends. My methods are set and simple. I paint the things I like, and I paint however I want to. Art for me is an expression of liberty. I will not submit to the Dictates of any Art Oligarchy.” Neville “Oluyemi” Legall 4252126 8298841 www.Nevillelegall.com

CHRISTOPHER & THE BARRACUDAS’ Saturday 1st March 7p.m. Waterfront Café, Scarlet Room RSVP: philipnanton@freemotion.bb Island Voices from St. Christopher & the Barracudas: Not everything is what it seems on St Christopher & the Barracudas. Guided by Emmanuel “Fish-head” DeFreitas, Chief of Police (Rtd.), Island Voices takes us on a tongue-in-cheek journey into the heart of this imaginary Caribbean island as a cross-section of residents – from coconut-seller to lawyer, radio DJ to librarian – voice their concerns. Author Philip Nanton and artist booops (Caroline Sardine) – who are both from St Vincent – dramatise the island's cultural complexities in a virtuoso display of words and art.


GET YOUR PLACE ON THE MURAL! Clapham is home to Barbados’ cultural icon The Mighty Gabby, top sportsmen on the island and a tightly knit community. The history of the village leads to a place called Emmerton and the journey of the residents of Clapham is one so poignant it is chronicled in song by Gabby. Over 100 people are represented on the CLAPHAM COMMUNITY MURAL to date. Whether in Barbados or halfway around the world, you too can have your name written on Barbadian history’s page.

THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY POETS www.lxpbarbados.org

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.

Duration of Residency: 4 weeks Eligibility criteria: - Artist must be a resident of Barbados -Artist must not have taken part in an onsite FRESH MILK Residency within the last 2 years

the Virtual Mapping Project, addresses the lack of available information about Caribbean arts at the formal, informal and educational levels. Fresh Milk sees value in developing a freely accessible, interactive online map of the Caribbean, which will clearly delineate the existing spaces for the arts in the region, from the nineteenth century up to the present time. The region will be mapped to show all arts entities, listed with links to the websites of all the spaces, and maintained to keep all information current. This map will not only be a pivotal information hub and educational tool, but a place to form new bonds and to make connections among practitioners, not only in the Caribbean but worldwide. The Fresh Milk mapping project will be an invaluable resource for students at secondary and tertiary institutions in Barbados, including those studying art at CXC CSEC and CAPE level, BCC Art Associate Degree and BFA programmes, and participants in the BA and MA Cultural Studies and Creative Arts degrees at the EBCCI, UWI Cave Hill Campus. This wealth of knowledge compiled into one easily accessible website means that students can have both historical and current data about Caribbean art at their fingertips, broadening their understanding and keeping up to date with the new, cutting edge work coming out of the region. Additionally, the Virtual Map will create opportunities for artists working in the region today and circulate their works and ideas to a global audience eager to know more about the region's creative arena. Artists will have the chance to form an expansive network, informing them of what spaces - both formal and informal networks - exist in the region and which spaces they can potentially engage with. It opens up endless possibilities for artists, curators, collectors etc. in the Caribbean by giving them much needed exposure, as well as for those internationally, who will gain insight into a whole new market of quality work. Fresh Milk seeks to create a more integrated and connected region by using the arts as a vehicle to create partnerships and build community. Many Caribbean islands have no idea what is happening with their neighbours in the creative arts, which hinders our overall growth in the region. The Virtual Map will promote unity and aid in the building of support systems - whether it be the English, Spanish, French or Dutch speaking Caribbean, we would like to make sure all information is communicated as efficiently as possible, and invite the world to see what is being made and to see the region as a critical space. Fresh Milk is pleased to be the conduit between The Maria Holder Memorial Trust and the artistic community in Barbados and would like to thank them for their support, which allows Fresh Milk to continue supporting our nation’s youth and building capacity for artists in both the short and long term. This is why forming relationships with organizations with vested interest in expanding arts and culture becomes pivotal.


In an effort to cultivate discussions about the arts starting at a young age while engaging with the community, Fresh Milk will implement an outreach programme using the resources available in The Colleen Lewis Reading Room (CLRR). One of the many challenges faced by young creatives is, despite their artistic gifts, they often struggle when it comes to speaking and writing comprehensively about their work. This is a skill that would benefit immensely from reading, whether specifically arts oriented texts or even well written fiction; gaining an appreciation for articulate material is imperative to mastering one’s own practice. Fresh Milk proposes to be the go-to point for refining these skills, beginning at CSEC level when children are expected to take their research and written abilities to a higher standard, all the way up to providing MA or PhD candidates with a deep pool of knowledge and unique material which they can draw upon. The Fresh Milk team will work with secondary school teachers in this area to construct a programme which will bring the students to Fresh Milk to show them the studio and reading room, letting them know that there is an environment available which can cater to their academic and creative needs.
