Into The Light: An Art Exhibition by Karen Sylvester” at 101 Art Gallery

Exhibition: “Into The Light: An Art Exhibition by Karen Sylvester” - Opening Reception on Saturday, June 18, 2016 @ 5-8pm; show runs through Wednesday, June 29, 2016 101 Art Gallery — Trinidad & Tobago, West Indies; Where: 101 Art Gallery; Location: 84 Woodford Street, Newtown, Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago, W.I.; Tel: (868) 628-4081; Email: marknpereira@gmail.com;
About the Artist: “Karen Sylvester was born on 15th March 1965 and received a secondary education at Holy Name Convent where she obtained an "A" level certificate in Art. After leaving school Karen was determined to pursue a career in Art and set out towards that goal by reading any art books she could lay her hands on, especially books on the European Masters and the early expressionists like Monet and Cézanne and by studying the works of well known local artists like Cazabon, Hinkson, Leroy Clark, Louison, Mosca and Bryden to name a few. The works of these local artists gave her the impetus to go on. For the past ten years Karen has been exhibiting both locally and abroad. She works in many different media, however acrylic is her favourite medium because of its quick drying time, permanence and versatility. Notes, photographs and sketches are used as references and combined with observation to enhance her ability to conceptualize. Constantly studying her surroundings trains Karen's visual memory and helps her when combining reality with imagination. Living in a country such as Trinidad and Tobago and being around a people such as ours and in the company of loving family and friends affords Karen all the inspiration she could ever need. The relationship between the earth, sky and water offers her a great challenge and the unspoiled rustic scenes of Trinidad and Tobago make ideal subjects. It is the artist's hope that she could evoke an awareness of something unnoticed or forgotten in our surroundings and that her paintings will invite viewers to move into the scene within the picture frames, only to return with renewed love and respect for our natural environment ...”Read more: Karen Sylvester Biography

Event Description: “The Studio Museum's Project Space will feature a new site-specific, mixed-media installation by Ebony G. Patterson on the subject of violence committed against young people of color (including deadly police actions) and the fears that focus on these same young people, who in the eyes of too many people appear as threats rather than victims. In the artist’s words, 'These children are often described as adults. Their blackness overrules the presumption of innocence.' '. . . when they grow up . . .' will present images of black youth in hand-embellished, large-scale, photo-based wall works, juxtaposed with a variety of elements associated with childhood and race. The installation will be designed so that visitors will negotiate the space as if experiencing it from a child’s height.

Event Description: “Art Supply Drive 2016 In August 2013, Doongalik Studios Art Gallery and The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas launched an annual community service initiative aimed at bridging the financial gap for art students attending government high schools in the country. Recent conversations with art educators had revealed that due to the high cost of materials, students were opting out of art courses or attending classes without even the most rudimentary supplies. In a country with a burgeoning art community and wealth of talent, this deficit was begging to be addressed. With the establishment of the Art Supply Drive, the galleries intend to relieve a portion of the burden and facilitate the students' creative expression. During the back-to-school season, the galleries collect new or gently-used art supplies, as well as monetary donations, and present supplies to three schools (a junior and senior high school on New Providence and a family island school). At the end of the school year, students from the three schools present the best of their artwork for an exhibition at the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas. This year’s presentation is comprised of the student work of C V Bethel Senior High School, T A Thompson Junior High School and Old Bight High School in Cat Island. We are pleased to again offer selected works for sale with proceeds going equally to the individual artists, the schools' art departments and Art Supply Drive's ongoing fundraising campaign ...”Read more: NAGB Art Supply Drive

Event Description: “'Embodied Islands' is a photography exhibition bringing together the past and the present in the Caribbean Region, one of the most creative regions for visual art and photography. The exhibition will consist of two different visual elements. At the center of the room, the display of 200 stereoviews (the ancestor of photographs) taken at the very end of the 19th century across the Caribbean Region just after the abolition are a rare opportunity to see the conditions of life and work of the Caribbean people in a colonial environment. Those pictures are as much historical witnesses of the plantation system as visual triggers to reflect on how photography was used as a tool to justify that the exploitation of the workers’s body as a commodity. (Those pictures are suitable for children to see). They are a rare opportunity to think about the history of photography, given that a stereoscope will be displayed in the room to give a real sense of the type of pictures people could enjoy to see at the time ...”  — Read more: Warwick Arts Centre
About the Artists: “All across the room, Embodied Islands will also display the works of four contemporary Caribbean artists, whose photographs challenge the ways in which the human body is represented in the Caribbean. Nadia Huggins from Saint Vincent, winner of the last Caribbean Festival of the Image, takes picture of teenagers while they dive from the cliff into the water as part of a coming of age ritual. The pictures are taken under water and represent the body in quite a supernatural feature, as if move- ment was fixed under water. Robert Charlotte’s (from Martinique) series of portraits of the Garifuna people of Saint Vincent tell the story of the artist’s encounter with his Caribbean brothers and the Garifunas strong will to remain free. Jean-Baptiste Barret, another renowned photographer from Martinique, portraits men and women with masks, posing in amazing tropical landscapes while reenacting a mythology of the island as a new Caribbean Odyssey, that is open to the spectator’s interpretation. Jean-François Manicom, from Guadeloupe, was awarded in 2016 the prize for the best photographer at the Vera international Festival of Con- temporary Art in Moscow for his series “Darbonne”, which portraits the nightlife on the Route de Darbonne, in Haiti. The silhouettes of adults and children on the Route de Darbonne are like ghostlike dancers in chiaroscuro behind the cars headlights ...”Read more: Warwick Arts Centre

About Paula Modersohn Becker: “Paula Modersohn-Becker (February 8, 1876–November 21, 1907) was a German painter and one of the most important representatives of early expressionism. In a brief career, cut short by an embolism at the age of 31, she created a number of groundbreaking images of great intensity. She is becoming recognized as the first female painter to paint female nudes. Using bold forays into subject matter and chromatic color choices, she and fellow-artists Picasso and Matisse introduced the world to modernism at the start of the twentieth century.”Read more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paula_Modersohn-Becker
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/

Event Description: “The second film in the series, 'Kon-Tiki,' by Norwegian filmmakers Rønning & Sandberg, 2012, deals with exploration, the majesty of the ocean, and not letting go of a dream. The film dramatises the 1947 epic voyage undertaken by Thor Heyerdahl and his five-man crew as they attempt to voyage from the coast of Peru to the Polynesian Islands aboard a small balsa wood raft, using techniques that were utilized 1,500 years ago by the indigenous peoples of the region. 'Kon-Tiki' also encourages reflection on the explorations of The Bahamas’ first inhabitants – the Lucayans – who are represented in the permanent exhibition. 'Kon-Tiki' is rated B; minors should be accompanied by an adult. Litzinger will be on hand at the end of each film for questions and comments. All films are free to attend and begin at 8 p.m. To make your experience that much more enjoyable, we’ll be offering popcorn and refreshments for sale.
