Event Description: “The National Gallery of Jamaica will be opening its newest exhibition 'Beyond Fashion' for the September Last Sundays featuring guest speaker SiiM (Michelle Simone Clarke) and a theatrical performance by Quilt. 'Beyond Fashion' examines the works of artists who have incorporated elements of fashion and it’s creation into their practice. It explores the capacity for fashion themed art making to delve into topics of the personal and the political, as well as providing a vehicle for experimentation and expression that goes beyond everyday fashion. 'Beyond Fashion' includes the works of artists that have experience in fashion design, fashion photography and jewellery making. The exhibition includes the works of Marvin Bartley, Kereina Chang-Fatt, The Girl and The Magpie, Jessica Ogden, Ebony G. Patterson, Alfredo Piola, Ayana Rivière, Peter Dean Rickards, Jasmine Thomas-Girvan, Phillip Thomas, Yasmin Spiro, Seymour Lewis and Cosmo Whyte. Our Guest Speaker SiiM (Michelle Simone Clarke) is an architecture graduate from the University of Toronto who fell in love with fashion after her travels to East and Southeast Asia and Australia. After returning to Jamaica her line became known locally and regionally through her Butterflies & Hummingbirds collection, inspired by the lightness, colour and freedom of the tropical animals. SiiM currently consults as a Creative Director and her team has worked on events such as FASHIONBLOCK, International Reggae Day, Jamaica Carnival, America’s Next Top Model, The Wray and Nephew Contender and many others for over a decade. No strangers to the National Gallery of Jamaica, the Quilt Performing Arts Company was born out of a need for a fresh, new, innovative way of creating performance art ...”Read more: National Gallery of Jamaica Blog

Artist's Bio Excerpt: “... There is an underlying spirituality in Gaby’s work which is the root from which all her art unfolds. She taps in to the subtlety of soul and pure beauty that exists in all things. The essence of truly living in the moment and noticing these subtleties is the challenge that Gaby poses to every viewer - have you noticed just how exquisite sunlight passing through a leaf can be? Can we all be courageous enough to reveal our authentic self in full majesty, and know that we will never be outshone by another just as one flower can never outshine another? There are so many spiritual lessons that we can learn from living in the moment and taking the time to really notice nature that Gaby’s art offers ... From early on Gaby’s work has been featured and recognized on an international basis. In 1997 she participated in a poster competition held by the United Nations and had a piece chosen out of thousands of applicants for both the Regional Caribbean and Global International competition. She has been featured in a few Caribbean publications and has participated in several group exhibitions such as Women in Art held at the National Museum of Trinidad and Tobago in 2011, and has had several successful solo exhibitions. Over the years several prominent companies have purchased her work such as The Hyatt, and recentlyshe had the honour of displaying her work on the Queen’s Park Oval Wall ...”  — Read more: 101 Art Gallery  and 101 Art Gallery-Facebook

Being held Friday, September 28, from 5:30pm to 7pm at the Rick Faries Gallery at Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art ... Katherine was born and raised in Bermuda, she discovered a love of illustrating when she received her first set of inks. Exploring through this new medium helped Katherine realise her particular style and passion for illustrating. In her previous six solo shows, Katherine has always focused on the beauty of the Island, from the poinciana in her grandmother’s garden to glorious sea fans. Katherine’s artwork explores the natural habitat and elegance of the Island. Inspired by the minimal realism style of Charlie Harper, she uses colour, texture, geometric shapes and fine detail while playing with scale and composition. In her latest collection of illustrations; Wild, Uncaged and Free, Katherine has used a rich, opulent, autumnal colour pallet focusing on themes of Bermuda’s birds.
