Today’s throwback features highlights from the Opening Reception of the ‘Spirit of Budhai’ exhibition which opened on November 17, 2019. The exhibition explored the works of Cuban born artist, Neville Budhai (1928-2001) which was curated by National Gallery West’s very own Assistant Curator, Monique Gilpin as her first major curatorial project.
The opening reception saw a slew of patrons who were quite elated to view the artistry of a man many, remembered to be a very humble and insightful individual . He created colourful interpretations of past and present Jamaican life, most of which were sublimely outlined with Indian ink and eventually saw himself as a full-fledged Jamaican.
Hello everyone. Meet the team behind the Virtual Summer Workshop. Our annual summer workshop was unfortunately affected, as many industries have been by Covid-19. In an effort to continue to give back to the community especially those who support and look forward to our yearly engagements, we decided to recreate our summer workshop and provide a virtual experience in light of the pandemic. We value the efforts of providing you with an experience that was certainly incomparable to any we’ve ever had as well as the efforts of those that participated. We enjoyed each tutorial that we made and we hope that you had as much fun as we did in completing each project.
From all of us at National Museum West and National Gallery West, we hope that you continue to strive to reach your ultimate creatively unique self.
We thank you for your involvement and we hope to see you again next year.
