|“In Retrospect: 40 Years of the National Gallery of Jamaica”|
Aug 31-Nov 15, 2014 http://nationalgalleryofjamaica.wordpress.com/
Event Description: “The National Gallery of Jamaica is pleased to present the In Retrospect: Forty Years of the National Gallery of Jamaica exhibition, which is opening on Sunday, August 31, 2014 and marks the beginning of the Gallery’s fortieth anniversary programme. It is indeed forty years ago this year, on November 14, 1974 to be precise, that the National Gallery opened its doors at Devon House and the institution, which in 1982 moved to the Roy West Building on the Kingston Waterfront, has grown significantly since then. As it presently stands the National Gallery of Jamaica is the oldest and largest national art museum in the Anglophone Caribbean and its reach and size was further expanded recently with the opening of National Gallery West at the Montego Bay Cultural Centre … The exhibition opening on August 31 coincides with the National Gallery’s Last Sundays programme for this month and the Gallery will thus be open to the public from 11 am to 4 pm. The formalities start at 1:30 pm, with the Hon. Lisa Hanna, M.P., Minister of Youth and Culture, as the guest speaker. This will be followed by a musical performance by Black Zebra, featuring Wayne McGregor and David Lazarus, who play a mixture of blues, rock, jazz and soul. As is customary on Last Sundays, the event on August 31 is free and open to the public. The In Retrospect exhibition will continue until November 15, 2014.” — Read more at NGJ: http://nationalgalleryofjamaica.wordpress.com/For further information: http://nationalgalleryofjamaica.wordpress.com/, http://natgalja.org.jm/ioj_wp/ and https://twitter.com/natgalleryja.
