It was definitely a pleasure welcoming young minds from the Fairfield International Academy to National Gallery West in 2018. They were given a tour of our ‘I Shall Return Again’ exhibition as well as engaged in National Gallery West’s Art Supply Initiative. We miss seeing our young visitors, however we are hopeful that some day, under the new normal, we will meet again. Continue to stay safe everyone.
Today’s craft is one that is a common craft project for parents and small children and premade versions of finger puppets are sold at a variety of stores. Finger puppets also make great companions for reading children’s story books.
Marcia Biggs: Impressions of Life exhibition, opened to the public at National Gallery West at the Montego Bay Cultural Centre on Sam Sharpe Square on Sunday, December 18, 2016. The exhibition explored the work of the popular Montego Bay-based artist Marcia Biggs, through examples borrowed mainly from private and corporate collections in Western Jamaica. Many that not only adored her work, but who were also close relatives and dear friends of the late artist and teacher, relived gracious memories of Marcia while viewing the exhibition. The reception opened with a performance by Della Manley as well as closing remarks from Grace Ann Biggs-Allen.
