It documents some fifty years of collecting, mostly of Jamaican art but also of art and craft from elsewhere in the Caribbean and Central America. The exhibition tells the story of Harmony Hall, which holds a unique position in the history of Jamaica’s commercial galleries as it has served the local and tourist markets, and focuses on its role in the promotion of Intuitive art. And it also tells the story of a particularly group of people who made their lives in post-Independence Jamaica and who were deeply immersed in the cultural and artistic developments of that moment, to which they actively contributed. Janine Coombs, also known as Jkuhl (pronounced Jay-Cool), is an eclectic singer-songwriter and also an eclectic listener who is influenced by many genres of music. She describes herself as 'a beatific musician, songwriter and singer of Classical and IndiePop.' A graduate of the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts, Janine Jkuhl recorded her first Album, STAR GAZE, in the summer of 2009. This album consists of ten inspirational Indie-Alternative-Fusion tracks, to inspire, heal and soothe the mind and soul of listeners ... Visitors will also be able to view two other temporary exhibitions consisting of selections from the 'National Collection: New Dialogues and Art of Independence.' Doors will be open to the public from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm; the musical programme will start at 1:30 pm. As is customary, admission will be free, along with free guided tours of the exhibitions.
