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!

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.

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.
