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

Opening reception of the visual art exhibition 'Social Geometry: Expanded Drawing Practices by Barbadian Artists', Sunday May 5th, 2019, 6:30pm-8:30pm. Exhibition ends Saturday, June 15th, 2019. Gallery hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 10:00am – 6:00pm Presented by the National Cultural Foundation - Barbados (NCF) and Queen’s Park Gallery (QPG) See more here: This show is guest curated by Barbadian artist and writer Katherine Kennedy, and features work by Simone Asia, Ewan Atkinson, Theresa Bailey, Ras Ishi Butcher, Alison Sealy-Smith, Adrian Compton, Annalee Davis, Henry Fraser, Mark Gajadhar, Versia Abeda Harris, Mark King, Rosemary Pilgrim, Kia Redman, Akilah Watts, Chris Welch and Kraig Yearwood. In sociology, the term ‘social geometry’ is a theoretical strategy which uses a multi-dimensional model to unpack and understand societal behaviours. Paired with the mathematical meaning of geometry as the properties and mapped relationships between points, lines, surfaces and even solids, Social Geometry: Expanded Drawing Practices as an exhibition explores a wider definition of the medium of ‘drawing’ as used by Barbadian artists as a reflection/deflection of their social space. Connections between drawings, objects and varied facets of historical and present-day Barbadian experiences are explored through both traditional and contemporary imagery and media. This multifarious approach expands the boundaries around what ‘drawing’ can mean as a practice, and how we can draw literal and figurative lines between works by different generations, their ideologies, and ways of questioning, perceiving and empathizing with our local communities. This exhibition proposes to be laid out in the following five sections, based on the five variables of Social Geometry: Morphological – The physical interactions Vertical – The inequalities Corporate – The organization/integration Cultural – The freedom of expression Normative – The extent of control Social Geometry: Expanded Drawing Practices engages with this model to interrogate, agree with or defy these variables, reflecting through multiple processes of drawing, the complexity of Bajan society.

“The artists are already doing their job by making their work....the institutions need to come together and lobby each other and the state for the infrastructure required to push forward the sectors while making changes within their organizations to shift ground. Buy art. Build art collections. Build a national art gallery- dear mother of all the gods and goddesses- build a flipping gallery where we can show our work in the country where it is made! Develop endowed chairs to produce scholarship on the arts. Give grants to artists to simply be in their studios. Develop art hubs to bring people together who will make amazing things and sing songs to make your heart swell and produce theatre to make you weep or laugh or whatever feels you get. If the country “gathering” in 2020- I want to gather in a national art gallery please!” Annalee Davis

Alberta Whittle (Barbados) exhibiting at the Havana Biennial 2019. ”In another venue of the old city, the Casa de Simón Bolívar, the video installation entre un susurro y el llanto (between a whisper and a cry) (2019) by Barbados-born, Glasgow-based artist Alberta Whittle stands out for the way it weaves together, in a poetic manner, questions of ecology, survival, colonial violence, and the collective power of healing. The installation is composed of several pieces: a series of beach towels printed either with a banknote of one hundred U.S. dollars or with a digital collage of a meteorological map with the artist performing what looks like a ritual dance in the middle of it and the sentence 'business as usual' repeated multiple times. The towels are leaning against a series of precarious support structures made of raw construction material; what looks like a shrine made of the same plastic blankets used in the aftermath of catastrophes. A video of found and made footages ties the different parts of the installation together, showing sequences from a collective religious ritual, images of the artist on a boat at sea, a woman dancing, the landscape, and a weather forecast. Influenced by the work on the afterlife of slavery by Christina Sharpe, and Barbadian poet Kamau Brathwaite's Tidalectics, which exposes the performativity of sound as it carries the memories of a transoceanic life, Whittle's work is a multifaceted reflection on questions of survival, resistance to zombification, and the possibilities of healing the wounds of historical traumas and the violence inflicted yesterday as today upon Africans and the people of African descents.” Federica Buetti

”The Immigrant and the Chameleon. "Immigrant" the art on movement and replanting, a global conversation from the beginning of time, however technology has opened the flood gates to information on the life of migrants within the Caribbean and the Caribbean diaspora. Art has brought a focus over the years on the subject of migration's pros and cons outside of the region, nevertheless, we within the Caribbean share a similar narrative: however, spoken in different lingos, in terms of our politic, economics, job security, and even bloodline. The late American artist Jacob Lawrence repeated certain words and colours to give the 60-panel opus the lively rhythm of jazz composition, accelerating the forward momentum of the composition and highlighting the persistence and optimism of the migration. Lawrence titled one of his panels, “And the migrants kept coming.” Yes, today those prophetic words are a reality. The immigrant and the Chameleon is one of the titled acrylic paintings displayed at the Argentinean Embassy. Can you spot the Chameleon?” Ancel B Daniel

i remember the day when i decided NOT to become a cold­hearted businesswoman in a male­prevalent career field. i had the opportunity, like many of us do these days to embrace life as an aloof and pulse­ less 'successful' person building a creative enterprise that looked impressive from the outside but had moments of "arm­wrestling" and "high words" with those whose voices have way more bass and volume than mine... The decision to choose warmth over coldness, tenderness over telling somebody off, joy over the mundane and camaraderie over competition still brings a deep breath and smile to my face AND income to my pocket sis, you don't lose when you choose to maintain the essence of who you truly are you don't have to be rough to be in business or aloof to be 'taken seriously‘ As an entrepreneurista, you DO, however, have to have the endurance of an Olympic athelete, the tact of an ant colony, a coach, mentor or couple or a few supporters whether in person or online, patience of Job, the humility of Mary (the one who used her hair to wash His feet), the courage of David who knocked out Goliath with a 'gutterperk' and a rock, the resourcefulness of an outdoorsman or woman, the spunk of jack russell, and every ounce of grace and joy you've been blessed to receive...many of those you'll be taught and acquire along the way and you'll find so much joy building, growing and managing your business while serving your clients well with a glow it's soooo worth the effort Indra Rudder

The result may not be everyone's cup of tea, but what matters most is that you are happy with what you have created." Hugh Walker























GROVE/ON THE WALL ART GALLERY At Limegrove, Holetown Mon - Sat 10am – 6pm 246 234 9145 Curator Vanita Comissiong

Surinamese artist, George Struikelblok opened a window to his soul at a private view of his exhibition UnSeen at the Queen’s Park Gallery. In his 30 or so years as an artist, Struikelblok has shown his work around the world but this is his first solo exhibition in Barbados. At the tender age of thirteen he began his love affair with art after being inspired by a friend to take up drawing lessons. In his early work he admittedly had a great admiration for impressionism, however after experimenting with different styles in search of his own, he finally found a theme that really spoke to his soul. It was a subject that had influenced his entire life to date – ‘Love & Death.’ His work then became more abstract, emotional and impulsive. National Cultural Foundation (NCF) Curator for Queen’s Park Gallery, Janice Whittle described his work as being very different, full of expression and stylistically mirroring the changes in the seasons of his life. The exhibition UnSeen is a reflection of the overall ‘Love & Death’ theme showing the dark and light periods of his life. As evidenced by his work, his NIFCA award winning dancers Shea Best and Tuesdai Pounder with their performance art interpretation of a poem written by Struikelblok about growing up without a father paintings moved from sombre and dark to the exploding kaleidoscope of colour for which he is best known. UnSeen is a reference to his family ties, displaying art from his past to today that have had a personal and emotional connection to his life.

The death of his father before he was born brought with it numerous questions, a never-ending sadness and emptiness, all emotions that he in turn channelled through his art. Struikelblok in his own words noted, “Having my own family has inspired that change in me and in my work. Missing my father is still important, but now I primarily express the love and connection I share with my family. Being open to change, embracing the things in life that are most important, now influence the direction of my work.” In an informal interview with Curator of the Queen’s Park Gallery, Janice Whittle, Struikelblok agreed that it is not enough to wait to be discovered and offered these few pearls of wisdom to young artists: • Stay focussed, you are your own boss and your business is to show your art. It is now much easier to do so with the internet, websites and social media. • Use every opportunity to show your work and be prepared – always travel with your CV, business card and portfolio – you never know who you will meet. • You can’t wait for things to happen you have to make it happen.

BLACK ART STUDIOS Durants Village, Holder's Hill St. James

A Bajan Cultural Showcase Article by George Alleyne Published on March 28, 2019 In a chilly room of the Central Bank of Barbados’ Exchange Centre, one can be greeted by cultural characters of Barbados resplendent in the Caribbean’s warm colours, ranging from a classical masquerade get-up to a bubbling Mother Sally. For some viewers, the heat under the collar may increase as their eyes behold an array of the quintessential female Bajan derriere, offered up in views bound to tantalise the imagination while at the same time reminding one of the expansive freedoms of Caribbean lifestyle.

Sensuality is further pronounced in the candle-lit setting where a gentleman brandishes a less than gentlemanly countenance as he administers a bush bath to a pleasured female. Then there is the unmistakable portrait of the Master Blaster, a star among those who brought pride to the region as a collective, followed by booklets of cartoons of social commentary that once came to life in a Barbados newspaper. Such an exhibit covering the intertwined disciplines of artistic presentation on paper and canvas can belong to a few people, and one of them has to be artist, cartoonist, songwriter, and costume designer, the late Winston Jordan. The selected works of Jordan, who passed away in 2007, have been on display since the beginning of this month and will continue to be until April 4. It is part of the Annual Caribbean Fine Art Fair (CaFA). A gallery was set up for other Barbadian and regional artistes for five days, ending March 10, in the Courtney Blackman Grand Salle. But unlike that brief art show, Jordan’s work was given a month showcase, reflective of the lasting impact he made on Barbadian cultural life. CaFA director Anderson Pilgrim said the exhibition is not just about celebrating Jordan’s legacy “but it looks at what he has contributed overall to the various areas that he operated in – commercial art, visual art, festival art”. “He was one of the people who drove Crop Over,” the organiser said, hurrying on to make clear that the culturally imbued designs and promotions of Jordan in Crop Over are “well, not exactly what it has become today”. “He didn’t particularly like the direction Crop Over was going – the skin and feathers thing. He wanted us to portray our culture and to delve into history.” Pilgrim reflected that his attention was first drawn to Jordan as a cartoonist at the Nation Newspaper in the 70s. “It was a revelation to see Barbadian culture reflected in cartoons when all the cartoons that I knew of were done overseas. Winston captured the Barbadian essence.” Speaking of “a wonderful selection of art work that he left us”, Pilgrim added: “I believe that the national collection needs to have some of his works. He is a national icon and we need to remember him.” Within the annex to the Central Bank lay pieces of work ranging from creations done by pen, to crayon to acrylic, on which Barbadians could judge whether the images that capture aspects of Barbadian culture should be preserved for posterity as part of the island’s national collection.…/…/28/a-bajan-cultural-showcase/

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. /

RICHARD DAISLEY In the year 2004 I was introduced to the art of lamp working a form of glass blowing. Fascinated by the uses of a torch to bring glass to a molten state where it can then be blown and shaped with tools and hand movements, I knew then this was my passion and I fell in love with this ancient art form instantaneously. In the first year of dedicating my life to this newly found love, I realised this relationship was not going to be easy, and so I found myself at the verge of a break up. However I needed this to work and I made up in my mind to wade thru these rough waters and overcome all obstacles in which I would encounter as time passed by. I learned to appreciate this medium called Glass. I became one with it, expressing my feelings in each piece I crafted. Expressions of the heart, mind, body and soul. Feelings of happiness, sorrow, pain, pleasure, hatred and love filled each work of art as they told their own stories and I told mine. With every heated kiss from the flame upon my skin, the fire reminded me not to take it for granted. For respect was due and I often felt its wrath, when I didn't take heed. Leaving behind scars as a constant reminder. Guess its true what the old folks used too say. Play with fire, you will get burnt. As the years went by one after the other I matured not only as an artist but as an individual. For while I was molding the glass it to was molding me. Though still young in my career as an artist I aspire someday for my name to be written and remembered in histories pages, amongst the greatest artists the world has ever seen. I often look back at where I started and where I am now. I have come a might long way and I must give thanks. Thanks first and foremost to the Almighty Father, for without him who and where would I be? The Father gave me life, health, a creative mind and the ability to make my dreams come true. I was also given a strong support system. My family, friends, love ones, patrons and yes even the critics. You all played an important role in this journey of my life and for that I say thank you, from the depth of my heart. Richard Daisley Rebel Arts Glass Studios
