  1. Barbadian Photographer earns justified Kudos for his Unusual perspectives

    Zemicon Gallery is no more, although I hear something new may be afoot – will keep a track on it… One of the last reviews I did featured a local shutterbug, Mark King, who seemed under siege at the time and in my daring to defend him I was suddenly questioned as to what qualifies […]

  3. Barbadian Art Glut: Alison Chapman Andrews’ Collection in the City; “There & Back” at Bridgetown Gallery; “A-Merge” at the Main Guard, Garrison & “Tierra Y El Mar” at Aweipo, Crane Resort

    Barbados certainly is not lacking for art shows at the moment once again, almost a month after Kadooment when there was a similar overload – still, is it not better that people have a lot of culture to choose from rather than wonder if Bajans are indeed cultured? Alison Chapman Andrews is an artist of her own right, yet […]

  5. ART OVERLOAD – More Barbadian Art than you can shake a Paintbrush at: Queen’s Park Gallery, Grand Salle, Bridgetown Gallery & Barbados Arts Council

    Usually after the Winter season for Tourism, art in Barbados is scarcer than locating a mythical winner for the current Super Lotto with its ever-climbing jackpot (It was last at $9-mil. plus, oh babies!)… This Crop Over, however, finds art overloading the culture-meter and both within and without from the City environs! Starting from the outer bands of Bridgetown […]

  6. Cthulu was a LADY? Bridgetown Gallery plays host to sequinned “Battle Of the Sexes” of Alberta Whittle

    Back in the late 30’s, an author by name of August Derleth tried to create an archetypal clash of Pure against Profane with the squid-headed demonic Cthulu – a character from HP Lovecraft’s fevered psyche. Neil Gaiman once gave a humourous memoir of the Jungian nightmare-avatar as if it can recall the angst of teen-Elder […]

  7. Arthur’s Art at Former Zemicon Gallery – “BRIDGETOWN” runs to Month-End, 28 Feb. 2010 at the Bridgetown Gallery

    You better rush over to Hincks Street fast, because by the time you read this all of Arthur Atkinson’s works may have sold out? Be it acrylic, watercolour or mixed media – the depictions of various aspects of ‘Street‘ life even to the life of the street itself are being gobbled up by collectors. I […]

  8. Zemicon Gallery closes forever by end of December – Cost of Culture prohibitive without National Gallery

    It seems Barbados is going the way of Cancun, no genuine culture or green spots, just Condos and Waiters everywhere, sigh…

  12. Stanley Greaves regales select crowd at Barbados’ Zemicon Gallery with Haiku-like Poetry and new Colourful Works, out of the Shadows

    One thing which usually permeates the works of Stanley Greaves, in either his political or literary inspired works, is the worlds of Shadow… While at Bridgetown’s Zemicon gallery recently, he told the intimate audience that during childhood he would assist his father in painting signs and mostly black paint was used. He suspects that’s part […]

  13. Other Voices – Zemicon Gallery of Barbados to the power of 10

    Ten fingers. Ten toes. Separate entities, yet aiming for common goals. Reaching, grasping, travelling, fighting, loving, stroking, and more – like how good art should do too, eh?

  18. Guyanese DeCaires’ art at Barbados’ Lancaster Great House continues until month-end

    Was sad to see that no-one appeared to have any remarks for Dennis DeCaires’ art at the Lancaster Great House Gallery. I have since learned it’s not even the first time he’s appeared at the West Coast venue, thanks to Caribbean Beat;- [Denis DeCaires] is also passionate about everyday things like mangoes, flowers, a cup, […]

  20. Barbados’ Prime Minister attends local art show at Queen’s Park Gallery, “Whittle In Context” runs to November 29th

    When I look at Whittle’s most recent, mixed media works, my attention fixes on the canvas strips that fall freely from the traditional rectangles, some with different material attached to them, others burnt. Again, I see the fluctuation pattern or pendulum motion characteristic of Whittle’s work. He himself calls the strips ?kite tails?, but one […]
