Highlights from GW Art’s Collection last Saturday!

20191003_051158.jpg

GW Art’s Collection was held in the Rio Bueno Suite of the Jamaica Pegasus last week Saturday evening. The weather held up and a few persons even came out within the first hour of the show, but the majority filtered in from 6pm onwards.

Guests appreciated the colours and textures used by the artist, as well as the variety of pieces on display. The Collection definitely represented GW Art’s motto that ‘GW Art is for Everyone’.

Acrylic on canvas was the main medium used for wall paintings, big and small, framed and unframed.

Homey pieces greeted guests on the way in, followed by a wall of nature.

The standout piece for the night, ‘Connected’ showed depth and good technique from the artist.

‘Connected’ had quite a bit of representation for 1 piece and the artist ensured her perspective for it was expressed in her Lookbook, which ended up being passed around by guests with much excitement. The Lookbook included a chronological order of pieces from the current and previous collections with a bit about the artist, her perspective on each piece and how GW Art began. The Lookbook was dedicated to the artist’s late father and past West Indies Cricketer, Basil (Shotgun) Williams. Gabrielle plans on updating this lookbook as more pieces are created.

There were a few wooden signs and pieces on a grid wall panel display, courtesy of Miracle Corporation Ltd., that caught the eyes of many. These pieces showed the trendy side of GW Art and ‘Blessed’ was a favourite, with replicas ordered throughout the night.

Amongst the smaller paintings, ‘Our Doctor Bird’ was another favourite, with light brush strokes. The piece was inspired by the artist’s outing to Cafe Eits one morning for breakfast, where  the hummingbirds would often come and go to their trees on property in the midst of a calm and cool ambience.

‘Figure 8’ and ‘Foreplay’ were quite a hit with the men.

Throughout the night, guests mingled and contemplated which pieces they should walk away with for the night.

With GW Art, it’s always wine o’clock, so wine was complimentary to guests complemented by what was on offer from the 3 selected, local artisans. Gabrielle Burgess of Suga Lifestyle, under which GW Art falls, knew that Jamaican made cheeses from Outland Hurders Creamery & Farmstead, Homemade Jams and Pepper Jellies from Chorlavi’s, along with bean to bar 71% dark Chocolate from One One Cacao would not only pair well with the Wine and Prosecco offered, but pair well amongst each other as well.

The artisans were pleasantly surprised, realising this during the event and were seen purchasing from each other. This is what Suga Lifestyle and embracing Brand Jamaica is all about!

The event will feature Cheeses from Outland Hurders Creamery & Farmstead, Chorlavi’s Pepper Jellies and Jams and Artisan Chocolates to complement the evening too!

Chorlavi’s uses less sugar and more fruit to create a tasty variety of Pepper Jellies and Jams.

You will hear more about the Chocolates soon!

But here is a sneak peek of what to expect from Outland Hurders!

Their *Jamaican Jack* is freckled with roasted pimentos and scotch bonnet peppers and is rubbed with an in-house jerk rub during the aging process.

It’s a bit spicy at first, but mellows out on the palate afterwards. It is reminiscent of jerk chicken with its slightly smoky flavour. The flavour profile is between mild and sharp, depending on age.

*Pairings*

Spirits: Appleton Rum or Tequila.

Wines: Medium bodied Reds or Ports or anything Bubbly.

Non-alcoholic: Sweet, tropical Fruit Juices, such as mango or citrus based Juices.

Food: Cured meats, Mango Chutney, Berry Jams, Smoked Meats or Paprika dusted Popcorn.

SAVE THE DATE! #SEPTEMBER28

GW Art’s ‘Regal in the Room’ from the New Summer Collection

No one tends to ignore the Elephant in the room, especially when it looks so regal!

‘Regal in the Room’ is part of GW Art’s new Summer Collection and will be at Christmas in July next Thursday, July 18th at The Jamaica Pegasus from 9am to 6pm.

Christmas in July is a Corporate Gift and Souvenir Initiative. Corporate gifting in Jamaica includes gifts at Christmas, gifts at conferences, tokens for promotional activities and much more.

Instead of purchasing corporate gifts from overseas or from local businesses that import items, companies have begun to explore local options. This initiative differentiates their offerings and adds uniqueness and creativity to their gifts, while managing costs.

Get GW Art in your space today and help to Support Local!
Stay tuned for more.

GW Art’s Exhibit continues at The Reggae Mill Bar, Devon House until October 1!

Thanks to everyone who came out to support GW Art at Art Wednesdays last night at the Reggae Mill Bar!

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.

Kudos to Alexx Antaeus and The Reggae Mill Bar for taking on this initiative at the Devon House in Kingston, Jamaica.

Many local artists have gotten the opportunities to showcase their talents and now it’s GW Art’s turn!

Remember the exhibition runs until October 1st, so you can view any evening as you please. You can also get a chance to chat with me, the Artist over a drink next Wednesday from 7-11pm at The Reggae Mill Bar.

Thanks again to all who took the time during the week to come out last night and for those who contacted me with kind messages, compliments and motivation. It was truly appreciated.
