The Festival kicks off today with a networking and learning experience for farmers allowing them to showcase their coffee and coffee byproducts.

Art Wednesdays’ 1 Year Anniversary at The Reggae Mill Bar Tomorrow!

PhotoGrid_1550577281240.jpg

Tomorrow is Art Wednesdays’ One Year Anniversary at The Reggae Mill Bar, Devon House, starting at 7pm.

Art Wednesdays was inspired by Swizz Beat’s No Commission movement that started in Miami during Art Basel 2015.

Fairs showcase artists without charging a participation fee and taking “No Commission” on any sales.

No Commission was inspired to create a platform that is 100 percent for the artist. At the time Swizz Beatz didn’t see anything out there like it. Swizz Beatz along with The Dean Collection team are “by the artists, for the artists, with the people.” He then found the perfect partner in Bacardi to help make No Commission Fairs a global movement and not just a domestic initiative.

Swizz Beatz’s No Commission Art Fair has gone to London as well.

Alexx Antaeus took on this initiative a year ago, known as ‘Art Wednesdays’, featuring our local artists at The Reggae Mill Bar, Devon House in Kingston, Jamaica.

Many local artists have gotten the opportunities to showcase their talents including myself with my GW Art Collection.

Tomorrow is the 1st Anniversary featuring a few of the great talented Artists we have in Jamaica. I am looking forward to seeing the Buju Banton Portrait by Christopher Daley inspired by A Long Walk To Freedom!

Come out and support our local artists tomorrow at The Reggae Mill Bar from 7 to 11pm.
