Art-Jamaica Exhibition in Europe House, 19 - 29 June 2012
32 Smith Square, London SW1
ArtJamaica in conjunction with 12 Star Gallery at Europe House is delighted to announce that it will be staging a new exhibition featuring 30 works entitled "Jamaican Men,
“A Collectors Choice" between 20th and 29th June 2012.
The new show complements the previous exhibition "Art Jamaica" put on at Murray Edwards College Cambridge in October 2010 which featured Jamaican women artists.
The latest show demonstrates some of the major themes in Jamaican Art and the way in which they have been treated by artists such as Albert Huie in the 1970's through to contemporary male artists such as Philip Thomas.
An interesting sub-theme is the way in which families (such as the Watsons- HRH Prince Harry of Wales unveiled Basil Watson’s painting on his recent trip to Jamaica), have passed the creative instinct from one generation to the next creating artistic dynasties in the process.
