A-Merge Exhibition at the Main Guard: Barbadian Art displayed with UK Boost

Allison, Ahmad & Aubrey… Artists, art and artful as well as arty… This was a well attended debut at the Garrison’s Main Guard Clock Tower late last week.

Ahmad's son also made a presentation to High Commissioner Brummell

The difference is that overseas diplomacy defrayed gallery expenses, thanks to the British High Commission – who is now considering to carry the show over to London.

Ahmad took the most basic chiaroscuro elements of chukkas and brought it forth in minimalist lithograph worthy of a haiku

This is no surprise since among Ahmad’s photography is polo, a sport very popular with Britons near and afar; in Allison’s pen & ink detailed works is a selection of old Bridgetown where Cave Shepherd much younger than now is gearing up for the coronation of QE 2!

Everyone credited the show’s impetus with the late Aubrey Cummins’ whose family attended the show which highlighted many of his excellent studies of what some may think as ordinary but is extraordinary under his view.

  1. Thanks Bajan Reporter. A clarification though, the British High Commission was not asked to, and did not provide monetary support… the producers of the Amerge Art exhibition asked the British High Commission to have the show held under their patronage.

    All expenses were handled by the artists.
