‘Hands in Art’ is a Suga Lifestyle & Rotaract Club of New Kingston Arts and Entrepreneurship Initiative with Lister Mair/Gilby High for the Deaf. The Project also has the support of e-Learning Jamaica Co. Ltd. ‘Impact Through Unity’ is Rotaract’s theme for the year, which inspired the majority of the pieces.

Last Saturday at Suga Lifestyle’s V-Day Pop Up Shop, the kids showcased their Paintings guided by Gabrielle Burgess, Founder/Owner of GW Art and Jewellery guided by Bianca Bartley, CEO/Creative Director of Peace-is of Bianca. All proceeds from sales went towards the students’ educational resources and the school’s infrastructure and there is still a need for more funding, for instance, to supply classrooms with fans that are currently without.

The Epiphany: Beyond Body for Suga Lifestyle’s V-Day Pop Up Shop this Saturday!

20200205_060530_0000

Suga had an Epiphany! After over 2 years of testing various handpoured soy wax Candles from various artisans to find a special one other than Beryl + Blossom and Laura Alexis Candles, I found The Epiphany: Beyond Body. There were a few more suggestions to try, but Marsha-Lee Hutchinson’s branding, packaging and general presentation on Instagram grabbed me.

I tried her Coffee Candle (6oz) as well as the ‘Mi Rate Yuh!’ Blackberry with Vanilla (9oz) for Valentine’s. The Coffee candle when lit was strong the way I like it. The Blackberry and Vanilla was a bit faint when lit, but definitely soothing as more time went by.

20200205_060956

The Epiphany: Beyond Body is now a Suga Artisan and will have her handpoured Soy wax Candles, including the Valentine’s line on special, Chocolate and Coffee Body Scrubs too for great prices! She also offers Skincare products.

Look out for The Epiphany: Beyond Body this Saturday!

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.

20191003_055131.png

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.

20191003_050937.png

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.

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!

One One Cacao

20190525_075123

• Founder: Nick Davis
• BBC Caribbean’s correspondent
• Currently working on Production of Coffee in addition to his Chocolate Bars
• Factory in St. Mary overlooks the sea
• Started making Chocolate after he got a mystery illness, where he could no longer eat foods with preservatives
• He never thought he could give up Cadbury Dairy Milk, but when he decided to make his own Chocolate, he told Suga it was the best he has ever had. The need for sweet preservatives or artificial flavours was replaced by an appreciation for rich, strong, Dark Chocolate.

• Persons who make the switch to Dark Chocolate from Milk Chocolate with artificial flavours may find it bitter, but once you keep having it, you will love and appreciate the richness of Dark Chocolate like myself and Nick.

Fun Fact:
Without getting access to Likkle More Chocolate, the majority of Suga tasters voted One One Cacao as the richest Dark Chocolate in Jamaica, May 25, 2019.

20190606_045329.png

• Nick Davis wants Jamaican Chocolate to go global and be recognised as much as Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee, because we have some of the world’s finest Cocoa.
• Nick helps local Cocoa farmers by paying them a decent price.
• His Chocolate is 70% Cocoa
• Cane juice is used to sweeten the rest

20190606_050315.png

Come see One One Cacao and support local this Saturday!

Outland Hurders Creamery and Farmstead with Jamaican made cheeses as well as Chorlavi’s with Homemade Pepper Jellies and Jams will be there too!
