Before accepting her place at University of Arts London, she also applied and was accepted to Kent University (London) and Pratt Institute (Brooklyn, New York); with Pratt, she was one of 660 accepted students out of almost 7,000 applicants. Wallace-Whitfield currently holds the position of curator at The D’Aguilar Art Foundation, and gallery assistant at The National Art Gallery of the Bahamas. At both locations she produces art events, designs exhibition spaces, interacts with art aficionados that visit various exhibitions, and does other tasks involved in bringing the fantastic art of the Bahamas into the public domain.”Read more: http://www.popopstudios.com/moments-movements-exhibition-angelika-wallace-whitfield/

Exhibition: "Kerry Collins and Trevor Byron" ENDS on Saturday, May 24, 2014 at Horizons -- Trinidad & Tobago, West Indies

"Loading Bananas" by Kerry Collins on view at Horizons http://horizonsartgallery.com/
Exhibition: "Kerry Collins and Trevor Byron" through Saturday, May 24, 2014 at Horizons -- Trinidad & Tobago, West Indies; Event Details - Where: Horizons Art Gallery; Location: 37 Mucurapo Road, St. James, Trinidad, WI; Phone: (868) 628-9769; (868) 297-5105; Email: info@horizonsartgallery.com; Opening Hours: Mon-Fri: 9:00am-5:30pm; Sat: 9:00am-1:00pm
About Artist Kerry Collins: "Born in 1962, I was first introduced to the world of art via an intense love of comic books. I constantly drew the various characters such as ‘ Spider Man ’, ‘ Daredevil ’, ‘ X-men ’, ‘ Hulk ’ and the like. Constant drawing led to an improvement in my skill, which prompted my father to purchase my first oil painting set in December 1974. This introduction to oils was love at first sight. I liked the texture and effect that oils possessed so much that I began painting excessively thereafter, copying various paintings which I saw in art books. I also did a lot of original still life and portraits, which tend to be a personal favourite. I attended Hillview College during 1974 – 1981 and much of my spare time was spent painting and studying various techniques in oils. Unfortunately, much of my early works were given away and, I say unfortunately because in some respects they represent my greatest work since they were done with such passion and instinctive flare they represent an era that I can never reproduce. After I left Hillview, I took one art course representing forty (40) contact hours at U.W.I. Extra Mural where I learnt the basics. Apart from that I have pursued my own studies using books, magazines and the Internet and I am now poised to offer the local art community my own interpretation of art." -- Read more: http://horizonsartgallery.com/index.php/art-gallery/category/22-collins-kerry

Event Description: “Evolve the Gallery will pay tribute to Spiral, a New York-based collective of African American artists who were summoned by Hale Woodruff to come together because of the historic 1963 March on Washington. The group of 15 artists: Charles Alston, Emma Amos, Romare Bearden, Calvin Douglass, Perry Ferguson, Reginald Gammon, Felrath Hines, Alvin Hollingsworth, Norman Lewis, Earl Miller, William Majors, Richard Mayhew, Merton D. Simpson, Hale Woodruff and James Yeargans evolved into a think-tank discussing their relationship to the civil rights movement and the shifting landscape of American art, culture and politics. Richard Mayhew and Emma Amos are the only living members. The collective met for the purpose of exchanging meaningful dialogues on art, the Black aesthetic and worldviews. Although the collective existed for only a short time, each member of the group, working on their own and together, produced powerful artworks that testified to the common themes arising from the struggle for human rights and to the divergent ways different artists seek to address those themes. ‘Spiral: American Masters’ is a traveling exhibition of select artworks by each of the 15 members from the private collections of some of the country’s most prominent African American collectors and is accompanied by a commemorative catalog. A VIP private reception and pre-opening is scheduled for April 5th to celebrate Richard Mayhew's 90th birthday. Please inquire.”Evolve the Gallery http://www.evolvethegallery.com/#!coming-up/c1nqe

Event Description: “A provocative art exhibition featuring the work and multi-media collaborations of Rhinold Lamar Ponder. Ponder presents a visual challenge for honest and productive public discussions on issues of race and humanity. This two-day exhibition also features poetry, film and music.” —  Read more:  http://blackartinamerica.com/events/the-rise-and-fail-of-the-n-word-seeing-beyond-black-and-white
About the Artist: “With every stroke made to music, or during every dance of splatter or splash of paint, Rhinold progresses one step closer to his goal of beautifying the world with colorful, explosive and provocative images. He famously declares that he paints for “myself” but his passion and love for creating paintings that move others emotionally is self-evident. Rhinold’s unique works are not easily characterized as he seems to experiment and cross traditional lines of categorization. He easily mixes abstract with figurative as he does symbolism with the concrete, or politics with sports. While his works draw on a number of themes, most of his paintings focus on humanity’s faith and will to overcome adversity.”Read more: http://ponderart.com/about-ponderart-and-rhinold-ponder
