About the Exhibition: “Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art together with the Mark Twain House and Museum in Hartford Connecticut will present a special exhibit entitled, “Ever the Twain Shall Meet”, bringing Twain’s time in Bermuda to life. The exhibit runs until the end of June and is the first in a series of collaborations between the two museums. Between 1867 and 1910 Twain visited Bermuda seven times for a total of 187 days. Twain penned there is “just enough of whispering, breeze, fragrance of flowers, and sense of repose to raise one’s thoughts heavenward; and just enough amateur piano music to keep him reminded of the other place.…” Twain’s writings extoll the peaceful beauty of the island as well as its sometimes dissonant charm, and were published between 1877–78 in The Atlantic Monthly as “Some Rambling Notes of an Idle Excursion.” Guided by these words, Ever the Twain Shall Meet takes visitors on a journey through Twain’s visits to Bermuda, retracing the steps to his favorite haunts and places of inspiration.” —  Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art http://www.bermudamasterworks.com/ever-the-twain-shall-meet/
Guided Exhibition Tours: Tours can be arranged by calling 236‑2950 and we can accommodate individuals all the way up to a large group. There is no fee for a tour, however admission charges apply.

About the Fulton Art Fair: “Fulton Art Fair was formed in 1958 for the exhibition, promotion and publication of the fine and performing arts in the City & State of New York, primarily of African Americans; the stimulation and encouragement of community interest in the field of fine and performing arts, the development and achievement of creativity as an expression of the community’s status and heritage. Some of the people who pooled their strengths with founder Shirley Hawkins to bring Fulton Art Fair onto the scene were: Justice Thomas Russell Jones (Retired); author, John O. Killens; Reverend Milton Galamison; Attorney Courtenay L. Wiltshire; former Weeksville Society Director, Joan Bacchus Maynard; Olga Maryschuk Kandel; Ernest Crichlow; Jacob Lawrence; Evelyn S. Cohen; W. E. B. Seay; Maurice and Stella Golden, of Boro Hall Mimeo and Others. Their pleasure was doubled as they rubbed shoulders with Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee, Max Roach, Abby Lincoln, Harold Cumberbatch, Cecil Payne, and other celebrities who walked around Fulton Park admiring the work displayed on the park fencing. . . The annual major exhibit is held outdoors in Fulton Park. The park is centrally located in Bedford Stuyvesant and is part of Stuyvesant Heights, a designated landmark section of Brooklyn, easily accessible by all modes of public transport. It lends itself well to the presentation of Graphic and performing arts in a comfortable, complementary blend of art and nature; a signature gallery in Bedford Stuyvesant which also announces its own presence.”Read more: http://www.fultonartfair.net/

About Robert Las Heras: “Robert las Heras was born in 1943 in Port al Spain, Trinidad. Robert has decided to part with his collection because he considers that it Is now time to relinquish the responsibility of the curatorship of these works of art to others. He was educated at St. Mary's College, where his inclination towards the Arts, put firmly in place by his parents al home, was fostered and directed by the extraordinary Fr. Roland Quesnel, C.S.Sp. It was at this time, at the age of 9, Fiat lie became fast friends with the late Wayne Berkeley, genius of the Carnival. Later, at 16, he met and established a lifelong friendship with Peter Minshall, genius of Theatre, and arguably the finest of our Mas' designers. His artistic mentors and tutors included M.P. who lived next door to the las Heras family borne in Maraval, and Carlisle Chang, who tutored him in art for almost three years when the family moved le the city in 1959. He left for England in the early sixties where, in London, he enrolled at the Hammersmith College of Art and Building to study Architecture. In 1966/67, while still at college, he returned to do practical studies with architect John Newel Lewis. He lived, studied and worked in London for 17years. His first employer in England was Sir Denys Lasdun (later Lord Lasdun) whose mentoring was to be a lifelong influence. It was during his student years in London that he met and became lifelong friends with the late historian, musician and artist, the multi-gifted Pat Bishop. He returned to Trinidad in 1979 to practice with the Anthony Lewis Partnership. It was at this time that he began his collection of the art of Trinidad and Tobago, and came to know personally many of the artists.”Read more: http://101artgallery.com/

About the Artist: “Otto Trott was born in Bermuda. He grew up in St. George’s. He was taught by Charles Lloyd Tucker, at the Berkeley Institute. Mr. Tucker would paint in the art room and took his classes to exhibitions at City Hall. This exposure to art inspired Otto to become an artist. Otto himself eventually taught at the Berkeley Institute for 8 years. Otto painted “en plein air” for most of his early career. He mainly worked in watercolour until he went to the Maryland Institute College of Art in 1983. There Otto began working in oil paint. Otto continued working outdoors and could be seen going to painting sites with his easel and canvas strapped in his bike’s basket. Otto began working in the studio in 1991where he began to paint Bermudians at work and at play. People especially enjoy how Otto paints water. Some of his most popular paintings depict Flatts.”Read more: http://www.windjammer2.com/otto-trott/
