Colours Of Hope II – Lancaster Great House does their part for Haitian Relief Effort
A mixture of Photography and Fine Arts have combined to create relief for Haitian Children, gallery hours are Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10:am to 4:pm (This is a wonderful example from Lancaster in doing their part for charity, since our own Government won’t accept not even 25 worst case Haitians, who’d be in no position to run and become illegal immigrants).
Tonya Wiles is part of the many works which are all worthy of your important support at Haiti’s dire time of need, there’s also Garrick Jenkins who took up the brush not that long ago, his fascination with water and its properties suggest a surfing life – but he only dips as far as a body surf now and then.
Anna Didier is a teacher at St Winifred’s for the last 7 years and has been fascinated with many tropical topics. Andre Williams shutterbugging led to a detailed portrait of fish boning in an almost Bajan version of real-life Norman Rockwell urban scrutiny.
Mark Gill espied two brave pals hunting the ocean at low tide and snapped this phenomenal shot which not surprisingly is called “Fearless Friends“.
Vividly reminiscent of the works of Haitian descended Synthia Saint James (Who’s probably best known for her art adorning ‘The Cosby Show‘ in the 80’s or during the 90’s on the covers of Terry MacMillan’s books of 30-somewhat romantic angst with an ebony twist), there’s Lisa Stiebel’s “Rice For Haiti.”
Another visual symphony of fascination is Raquel Marshall’s “Basking in the Blessing” which shows all the simple joys of childhood encapsulated in a simple deed of appreciating the weather. For sheer brilliance in colours and nuances is Corrie Scott’s floral study of a “Bird Of Paradise.”
There’s not much time for this show as it concludes by the 27th of this month which is a Saturday.
