About Animals Inspiring Art (AWN): 'Animals Inspiring Art' - Our followers and supporters will be treated to a new concept for the 2016 Calendar, 'Animals Inspiring Art' will feature the work of local artists who have rescued or adopted animals as well as artists who have captured the beauty of animals in nature. Our decision to reach out to artists, some of whom we have met along with way through our work, was rewarded with a wonderful response and the gift of striking and in some cases amusing interpretations of animals they have loved or been inspired by. The collection is broad in terms of the style and media but the common theme is one of affection and recognition of the lovely souls of our animal companions.”Read more: https://www.facebook.com/events/540307639464789/

Over the years he has held fourteen one-man exhibitions at leading Art Galleries in Trinidad, and in 1998, published a book of his paintings and writings titled 'Natures Light.' Artist's Statement about 'Peaceful Places' - 'It may be in your garden or by the seaside, on a mountaintop or in a forest. But a peaceful place is somewhere to rest your weary mind.

About the Artist: “'As a Social Worker and Community Artist, I was deeply moved and inspired to create an intrinsic solution to address the social justice issues facing men of color,' says artist Gracie Xavier. Often the only stories highlighted of black men are centered around violence, incarceration, and death. Because stories depicting positive images of African American men are not readily available or highlighted in the media, Xavier worked in collaboration with local barbershops, community groups and schools to amplify the voices of African American men in the narration of their own stories and celebration of their lives.”Read more: https://www.facebook.com/events/533451200143203

About ASTT: “Before the Trinidad Art Society was born, a small group of painters, poets and writers including Amy Leong Pang and Hugh Stollmeyer among others – dubbed the “Society of Trinidad Independents”, taking their cue from the modernist movements in Europe- pointed the country into the headwinds of contemporary art. They revelled in Gauguin, Modigliani and the growing fascination with African art; their metaphysical leanings found a ready response in Shango – Baptist beliefs with strong echoes of Orisha in Benin. The group ran afoul of a fundamentalist press whose vitriolic attacks were partially responsible for the disintegration of the body (after nine years) in 1938. Their pioneering visual work, however, was to have a profound influence on the development of art in Trinidad and Tobago.”Read more: http://artsocietytt.org/about/

About the Masterworks Museum: “Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art is a not for profit organisation, which means that our funding comes from friends in the community and abroad. We rely entirely on the generosity of others, through donations, our volunteer programme and membership. Part of our mission is to build a major collection, not only of Bermuda art from the past, but also one that embodies the artists of today, as well as a vision for the future. By embracing all art forms, we hope to encourage artists from both Bermuda and abroad to develop their talents in our inspirational island setting. We also encourage the repatriation of works of art inspired by the island, and welcome any gift that may enhance our Collection.”Read more: https://www.bermudamasterworks.org/about-us/history-of-masterworks/
