Group Shows Fine Arts & Crafts at Queen’s Park Gallery – New kiln tecchniques & more 2 be found; Pt 2/2

We had promised another glimpse at what the Queen’s Pk Gallery has to offer right now, where the theme may subconsciously be masks but the applications are better than a cornucopia!

The multi-expo curated by Janice Whittle runs until September 1st and offers paintings, sculptures, jewellery, weaving and clay. Martina Pile looks at mixed media in a very oceanic manner that is easy on the eye.

Juliana Inniss has a few glazed clay tiles on display, she is over in Anguilla right now working with Bajan-transplant Courtney Devonish who is teaching the firing method known as raku.

For a different way to use a canvas you need to check Rebecca Ali, her print of post office box situated on the doors inside QPG almost looks as though there’s an internal pillar box for ppl 2 drop their mail!

Ad exec Lisa Cole has resumed her painting and straying from her usually more detailed work into what is known as a gestural method of conveying what sees and feels…

Tessa Kerr Armstrong and Alberta Whittle each have outstanding works for entirely different reasons; Ethiopian Angel from Alberta is a large replica of what is seen as full colour originally inside of an Ethiopian church, while Tessa’s interpretation of the brilliance of a red hibiscus in full strength is amazing to behold!

Goldie Spieler has been known to many generations of Barbadians as a Judaeo-American who fell for here and adored pottery – now, she has branched into watercolours and exhibited them here at both the Zemicon Gallery and the QPG… Drawn and painted in Israel, where she bravely spends most of her days now, this is true multi-culturalism!

This article could not be complete without touching on Lilian Sten-Nicholson‘s basketry made of silk and sisal – the coloured edges being cast-off’s from rejected silk works from the artist/reviewer.

But why are you still here reading this? Run over to the QPG any weekday plus Saturday from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm to enjoy the works, then perhaps make a purchase or two if you reallly love it?
