Event Description: “The National Gallery of Jamaica’s Last Sundays programme for July 31, 2016, will feature the soft launch of the 'Kingston – Part 1: The City and Art' exhibition and a musical performance by Jason Worton. 'Kingston – Part 1: The City and Art' is the first instalment of a two-part exhibition series that explores the role of Kingston in the development of Jamaican art and, conversely, the actual and potential role of art in the development of the city of Kingston. Inspired by Kingston’s recent UNESCO designation as a Creative City of Music, the exhibition makes the case that Kingston has been the crucible for many other aspects of Jamaican culture, such as the visual arts. Featuring works of art from the late 17th century to the present as well as documentary photographs, the exhibition looks at how Jamaica’s turbulent but culturally fertile capital city has generated circumstances and opportunities that have propelled the development of Jamaican art, from the natural resources to the economic activities and institutions. The exhibition also explores how artists have been inspired in their work by the events, personalities and tales that have defined life in the city, starting with the 1692 Port Royal earthquake. 'Kingston – Part 1: The City and Art' is curated by National Gallery Assistant Curator Monique Barnett-Davidson and continues until Sunday, October 30, 2016 ...”Read more: National Gallery of Jamaica

Amazon's Book Reviews: Caribbean Authors — Colin Channer

Colin Channer is a Jamaican writer, often referred to as "Bob Marley with a pen," due to the spiritual, sensual, social themes presented from a literary Jamaican perspective. Indeed, his first two full-length novels, "Waiting in Vain" and "Satisfy My Soul," bear the titles of well known Marley songs. He has also written the short story collection "Passing Through," and the novellas "I'm Still Waiting" and "The Girl with the Golden Shoes." Some of his short stories have been anthologized. Colin Channer (born 13 October 1963 in Kingston, Jamaica) is the youngest of four children. He attended the Ardenne and Meadowbrook High Schools where his writing career began with the penning of love poems and other such correspondence on behalf of male students at $1 a letter – poems costing an extra 50 cents. After high school, Channer migrated to New York on 24 July 1982, intent on a career in journalism. But it was his discovery of Caryl Phillips' "The Final Passage" that allowed him to see the possibilities of fiction writing from an authentic Caribbean - specifically Jamaican - perspective. Channer went on to earn a B.A. in Media Communications from CUNY Hunter College. Read more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colin_Channer

This is a review for Waiting in Vain: A Novel by Colin Channer - As I start to write this review, I am worried that I will not find the words to adequately express how much I loved this book! I have read books where I have loved and rooted for characters as friends. This was the first time I saw myself and my thoughts in characters, and felt understood. It was great to read about characters who were well-traveled, enjoyed learning, loved music and books, yet were down to earth. Waiting in Vain is a beautifully poetic novel about love, loss, self-discovery, and fulfillment. Mr. Channer provides emotional and academic stimulation; he also touches on class and political issues. I was so engrossed with sitting in on the lives, feeling the breeze, and tasting the fruits that I forgot I was reading. The book also gave me hope, in that if a man could write with such passion, love, and sensitivity there is a chance I will find my fire. Buy this book! You will not regret it, most likely you will thank me. Read more: http://www.amazon.com/Waiting-Vain-Novel-Colin-Channer/product-reviews/0345430123/ref=dp_top_cm_cr_acr_txt?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1

This is a review for Passing Through by Colin Channer - I discovered Colin Channer a little less than a year ago when I found his first novel WAITING IN VAIN in the laundry room of my building in Brooklyn. I was drawn in by his Brooklyn roots and promises of a sexy tale.By the time I finished reading it I was totally seduced, enchanted, delighted, and disturbed. I had never read erotica written quite so well by a man. Colin gets into the minds, bodies, and souls of his characters and with his special talent for manipulating words allows his readers to experience the story from the inside . After finishing, I proceeded to order the rest of his works from Amazon ,read them all twice, and I told everyone I knew about this gem of a writer. His lastest book, PASSING THROUGH, is a collection of seven distinct stories, that are told over a hundred years on the fictional island of San Carlos in the Caribbean. The characters in the seven stories are connected by blood and other ties. Each story can stand alone but together, they read as a novel. PASSING THROUGH is different from his other books because there are no nice little love stories here. These seven stories deal with themes such as incest, S&M, immoral love, obsessive love, narcissism, adultery, vengeance, and the separation of the classes, races, and sexes. All these stories are told with Colin's unique use of language which this reader cannot describe in a way that will do his talent justice. If the promise of a good story does not bring new readers to this great artist, the promise of good sex should. No one writes sex and provocative dialogue quite the way Colin does. Ladies, don't say I didn't warn you.Thank you Colin for sharing your gift. I can't wait for your next one. May you be blessed with a long life.

This is a review for Iron Balloons: Hit Fiction from Jamaica's Calabash Writer's Workshop by Colin Channer - The collection Iron Balloons: Hit Fiction From Jamaica's Calabash Writer's Workshop, begins with an introduction by Colin Channer, an organizer of the workshop and author of one of the stories in the collection. He explains that music has been the huge creative outlet for Jamaicans, whereas creative writing and reading for pleasure have been more exclusive and restricted, not as publicly supported or loved as the music of the island. His introduction sounds almost like an apology for the stories to come but no apology is needed. There are real gems of story telling in this collection, and all of the stories are good. What they share is the ambience they exert, a distinctly Jamaican mix of family and church, duty and pleasure; the stories express the flourishing of these traits, sometimes at odds and sometimes in complete harmony and rolling rhythm.

Event Description: “The Case of Collector turned Gallerist. Roberto Borlenghi opened his first space in the 1990’s in Los Angeles, California. When I first met him he had established a keen interest in the Caribbean region. We met at the Centre D’Art on his first trip to Haiti where he was looking to purchase works from local artists to present at his gallery in L.A. I’m delighted that so many years later he is still very interested in that region and in the process has collected so many of the luminaries from the archipelago. He ask me to curate this particular show from works collected over the last few decades. His collection is quite vast and I had to pare it down to three islands: Cuba, Haiti, and Jamaica. From these islands I could only select three artists per island ...”  — Read more: Pan American Art Projects and Pan American Art Projects-Facebook
About the Artists: “Cuba represented by: Santiago Olazabal, Juan Roberto Diago, Manuel Mendive; Haiti represented by: Burton Chenet, Marilene Phipps, Edpuard Duval Carrié; Jamaica represented by: David Boxer, Milton George, and Gene Pearson. Though all of these artists have made a name for themselves in their respective island nations and on the international art scene for the quality and mastery of their art, what is of interest here is the fact that Mr. Borlenghi had a keen eye and selected works from each of these artists that are excellent representations of their production. I will let the public ascertain these facts but I want to congratulate Mr. Borlenghi for having had early on this interest in a region which is destined to be of great importance to Miami for truly, amongst many other criteria, Miami is central to the Caribbean as is that region central to the evolution of this metropolis.

About Jurgen Schadeberg: “Jurgen Schadeberg was born in Berlin in 1931 and, while still in his teens, worked as an apprentice photographer for a German Press Agency in Hamburg. In 1950 he emigrated to South Africa and became Chief Photographer, Picture Editor and Art Director at Drum Magazine. It was during this time that Jurgen photographed pivotal moments in the lives of South Africans in the fifties. These photographs represent the life and struggle of South Africans during Apartheid and include important figures in South Africa’s history such as Nelson Mandela. Sometimes known as “The Father of South African Photography”, he is a principle figure in South African and World Photography. His major body of work, which spans 60 years and incorporates a collection of some 100,000 negatives, captures a wealth of timeless and iconic images.”Read more: https://www.journeyman.tv/film/4753
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/
