About the Artist: “Michel-Jean Cazabon (September 20, 1813–November 20, 1888) is regarded as the first great Trinidadian painter and is Trinidad's first internationally known artist. He is also known as the layman painter. He is renowned for his paintings of Trinidad scenery and for his portraits of planters, merchants and their family in the 19th century. Cazabon's paintings are to be cherished not only for their beauty but also their historical importance: his painting has left us with a clear picture of the many aspects of life in Trinidad through much of the nineteenth century. Cazabon relied on nature to expose the vistas which the plains of the Caroni and the tropical forests at Chaguaramas are idyllic in spender. His portraits of the mulattoes, indenture Indians and Negroes where the bases of debate, and whether the painter immortalized these people because he felt a personal bond with them rather less than the European Creoles which no stately portraits were ever recorded. Cazabon preferred to describe himself as a 'landscape painter,' but in Trinidad, away from the metropolitan influences and stimuli, he embraced the everyday, often mundane, forms of artistic expression - teacher, illustrator, portrait painter. In England and France his work was much admired and he won awards and medals at exhibitions. In 1851 and 1857 two books of his engravings of Trinidad landscapes were produced in Paris. He was the first Trinidad artist whose style influenced artists for many score years after his death. He was an assiduous worker. A few of his paintings and prints are to be found in the National Museum and Art Gallery and in private collections in Trinidad and abroad.”Read more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michel-Jean_Cazabon

Event Description: “The National Gallery of Jamaica’s Last Sundays programme for September 25, 2016, will feature a performance by the award-winning Quilt Performing Arts Company and guided tours of the recently opened 'Kingston – Part 1: The City and Art' exhibition. 'Kingston – Part 1: The City and Art' examines how Jamaica’s turbulent capital city has generated many of the circumstances and opportunities that have propelled the development of Jamaican art, from the natural resources to the economic activities and institutions and the events, big and small, that have marked the city’s history. The exhibition features works of art that date from the late 17th century to the present day and portrays life in the city in all its diversity, seen through the eyes of artists such as Isaac Mendez Belisario, Sidney McLaren, David Pottinger, Osmond Watson, Carl Abrahams, Andy Jefferson, Edna Manley, Cecil Baugh, Kapo, Michael Lester and Roy Reid. The exhibition also features the iconic Jamaican feature film 'The Harder They Come' (1972, dir. Perry Henzell), which is in many ways also a portrait of Kingston and, particularly, a time capsule of life in the city in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Kingston was curated by National Gallery Assistant Curator Monique Barnett-Davidson and continues until October 30, 2016 ... The Quilt Performing Arts Company was born out of a need for a fresh, new, innovative way of creating performance art. Using Caribbean rhythms, merging poetry, dance and music, the Quilt performers have developed their own unique performance style and an evolving devised theatre technique ...”Read more: National Gallery of Jamaica Blog

Event Description: “Kenderson Noray presents 'BOIS,' a new exhibition of works at Horizons Art Gallery. With live music from acclaimed guitarist Stefan Roach. 'This recent body of work is a melting pot of different ideas and techniques I would have picked up along the way through my ongoing journey as a practicing artist - whether it be cubism, abstract expressionism, Impressionism, and so forth. They all play an integral part in my work in some shape or form. For the most part the work has taken on a more naturalistic outcome with the presence of lush landscapes, mainly from my home town of Paramin, and blue seascapes from Mayaro and Maracas with the human form weaving it's way throughout the series, depicting everyday life. These are executed with the intent to break the subject matter down as a whole, as simple as I can get it and still have it be honest and at the same time interesting to look at.' - Kenderson Noray. Opening on Tuesday September 13th, 7:00pm-8:30pm. Gallery Opening Hours: 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Mondays to Fridays and 9:00a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays at the gallery.

NGCI Director and Curator, Natalie Urquhart explains, 'Watercolour is a medium that has become synonymous with the early development of the visual arts in the Cayman Islands.

The exhibition not only celebrates our unique natural environment but also pays homage to our vibrant cultural heritage.' A Legacy of Light follows the National Gallery’s popular temporary exhibition Native Sons – Twenty Years On, which featured works by contemporary artists who emerged in the mid-1990s.

'the observer and the observed' features work by Jamaican artist Deborah Anzinger and Bahamian artist Heino Schmid, each of them exploring ideas around representation, the body and how the gaze in effect changes ideas of relation, security, eroticism and social awareness.

About the Artists: Dunieski Lora Pileta is a top Cuban fine artist and sculptor who divides his time between Santiago de Cuba and Tobago. He has always been motivated to do art and became completely dedicated to it as a high school student. Dunieski was given a plot of land by the Taller Cultural in Santiago de Cuba where he built an art work shop that can be used by the local art community and where he teaches his craft. It was there that Luise Kimme worked with him on small bronze sculpture. Dunieski uses any kind of materials to create his sculptures: from bronze to wood, from the so-called 'poor' materials to the” rich”. In Cuba art materials are either very expensive or not available, so Dunieski has to become even more creative to use what he sees around him to produce his sculptures. His main themes are insular, popular and religious. He makes use of typical Cuban symbols in his work, such as the pig and the cow, which represent certain social statements ... Alexander Guerrero is a mixed media artist from Venezuela, working and living in Trinidad & Tobago. His work strives to be informal, authentic and peaceful. He is a self-taught artist who was inspired by his mother.  As a child he used to watch her sew, making his clothes for Christmas and his school uniforms.  Now he aims to create art with paint, fabric, thread, canvas, beads, feathers, wire and whatever is needed to bring to fruition the work of art he sees in his mind's eye ...”Read more: Dunieski Lora Pileta Biography and Alexander Guerrero Biography

Exhibition: “Disguise: Masks and Global African Art” - show runs through Sunday, September 18, 2016 at the Brooklyn Museum — Brooklyn, NY USA; Event Details: Where: Brooklyn Museum; Location: 200 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, New York 11238-6052, Telephone: (718) 638-5000; General Hours: Wednesday: 11am–6pm, Thursday: 11am–10pm and Friday–Sunday: 11am–6pm.
About the Exhibition: “Morris A. and Meyer Schapiro Wing, 5th Floor - 'Disguise: Masks and Global African Art' connects the work of twenty-five contemporary artists with historical African masquerade, using play and provocation to invite viewers to think critically about their world and their place within it. By putting on a mask and becoming someone else, artists reveal hidden realities about society, including those of power, class, and gender, to suggest possibilities for the future. The contemporary artists featured include Leonce Raphael Agbodjélou (Benin), Nick Cave (U.S.), Edson Chagas (Angola), Steven Cohen (South Africa/France), Willie Cole (U.S.), Jakob Dwight (U.S.), Hasan and Husain Essop (South Africa), Brendan Fernandes (Kenya/Canada/U.S.), Alejandro Guzman (Puerto Rico), Gerald Machona (Zimbabwe), Nandipha Mntambo (South Africa), Jean-Claude Moschetti (France/Benin), Toyin Ojih Odutola (U.S.), Emeka Ogboh (Nigeria), Wura-Natasha Ogunji (U.S./Nigeria), Walter Oltmann (South Africa), Sondra R. Perry (U.S.), Jacolby Satterwhite (U.S.), Paul Anthony Smith (Jamaica/U.S.), Adejoke Tugbiyele (U.S./Nigeria), Iké Udé (U.S./Nigeria), Sam Vernon (U.S.), William Villalongo (U.S.), Zina Saro-Wiwa (U.S./U.K./Nigeria), and Saya Woolfalk (U.S.). Masks have long been used by African artists to define relationships―between individuals, communities, the environment, or the cosmos―and, sometimes, to challenge the status quo. However, once masks were removed from their original performance context, they were transformed into museum objects, and their larger messages were often lost. The exhibition presents contemporary work in dialogue with historical objects from the collections of the Seattle Art Museum and the Brooklyn Museum within an immersive and lively installation of video, digital, sound, and installation art, as well as photography and sculpture ...”Read more: https://www.brooklynmuseum.org/exhibitions/disguise_masks_global_african_art
