About the Artist: “Fitzroy Hoyte is a Semi-Abstract Fine Arts Painter working with acrylic, ink, oil and mixed media on canvas and paper. 'As an artist there is a natural interaction in the transference of energy, creating experiences of metamorphosis that which I see as being alive. I take this journey to understand the resonance of the life force; there is a communion between the outer landscape and the mystical visibility of our senses. I embrace life’s seasons as an important theme. Discovering what lurks within transformation, from the familiar or the forgotten to the unexpected and the unrealized.

Exhibition: Featured artist, Alison Chapman-Andrews, is now on display at Gallery NuEdge — Barbados, West Indies

Artist Alison Chapman-Andrews at Gallery NuEdge Barbados
Exhibition: CURRENT SHOW: Featured Artist, Alison Chapman-Andrews, is now on display at Gallery NuEdge Barbados — Barbados, West Indies; Event Details: Gallery NuEdge Fine Arts Ltd. is located in one of the most prestigious developments in Barbados, 1st Floor, Building B, the Limegrove Lifestyle Center, right in the heart of Holetown, St. James, Barbados. Contact Info – Phone: +1 246-621-0067; Email: gallerynuedge@galerienuedge.com
About the Artist: “Although trained in English art schools, my 'art vocabulary' was developed in the West Indian landscape. I drew in Barbados and Guyana where the rural environment became my inspiration and my subject. As the subject was familiar and not "difficult", I was free to pursue my own interpretations and impose my ideas, which have changed through many phases.  When I arrived in Barbados 40 years ago, I saw reminders of England in cultivated cane fields and plantation houses beneath avenues of royal palms. This interest changed to exploring the gullies, formed by collapses of caves in a limestone landscape. I showed the moon with its energy animating masculine trunks. The moon positions in the composition became like the final square in a board game. The focus of my painting and my life has narrowed and simplified lately. Current works are often single trees, or plants.  A Christmas palm in my garden is often seen up close, drawn from observation, and records changes in light or growth.” — Read more: http://www.alisonchapmanandrews.net/page3.htm

“ANTONIO LOPEZ: Future Funk Fashion”
June 14-Nov 26, 2016 at El Museo del Barrio
About the Artist: “Antonio Lopez was born in Utuado, Puerto Rico on February 11, 1943. The family migrated to New York City when Antonio was seven and he attended P.S. 77 on East 104th Street. To keep her son off the streets, Lopez’s mother, a seamstress, would ask him to draw flowers for her embroideries. He also helped his father, a mannequin maker, to apply make-up and stitch wigs on the figures. At the age of twelve, Lopez earned a scholarship to the prestigious Traphagen School of Fashion in New York, which provided Saturday programs for children. He went on to attend the High School of Art and Design. Upon graduation, Lopez was accepted to the Fashion Institute of Technology. Lopez went on to illustrate fashions for Women’s Wear Daily and The New York Times and eventually became a free-lance artist for many of the top fashion publications, including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle and Andy Warhol’s Interview. He is known to have “discovered” or formed lasting friendships with women like Pat Cleveland, Tina Chow, Jerry Hall, Grace Jones and Jessica Lange. He collaborated with the noted designer Charles James, creating an illustrated inventory of Charles’ fashion designs (now in the collection of the Chicago History Museum). With his friend and business partner, Juan Ramos, Lopez moved to Paris where they both worked with Karl Lagerfeld and many other designers. Through his work, Lopez made great strides in exploring and representing the ethnic or racialized body within the world of high fashion. His imagery helped to develop and underscore a new canon of beauty throughout the 1970s and 1980s. He died in Los Angeles of complications related to AIDS on March 17, 1987 at the age of 44 ...”Read more: http://www.elmuseo.org/antoniolopez/ and https://www.facebook.com/elmuseo
