Over the past 6 weeks, the young ladies from The Women’s Centre and Young Women’s Christian Association that dubbed themselves, Phenomenal Women United, showed significant growth in their approach towards art, their appreciation for their talents and the understanding that their efforts are what will yield results. Of course, there were some who learned faster than others, but in addition to learning artistic techniques, tips on entrepreneurship and customer service skills, they learnt how to have a sound work ethic and an appreciation for time management. They should never forget Suga telling them, “Time is money”.

Suga is extremely happy to report that the ladies’ artwork sold out at Craft Cart Jamaica’s Pop Up Village last Saturday at Campion Auditorium. The young ladies were grateful and felt a great deal of accomplishment for their weeks of hard work and efforts. The project was definitely a success reaping in a bit over $50,000JMD, of which the young ladies kept all the proceeds.

Thanks to the Rotaract Club of Kingston for choosing me to help spearhead this impactful project via GW Art, which falls under my brand Suga Lifestyle.

Many thanks to all who assisted with training the young ladies, helped in the marketing and promotions of this project and to those who stayed glued to our social media accounts, kept it buzzing with compliments and to all who supported the project with your purchases. You have contributed to the financial empowerment and independence of six young women with a promising future.

What’s next for them? They will continue their studies and a few plan to continue exploring the field of art.

Keep up with the New Kingston Rotaract Club by following them on Instagram @nkrcjamaica and if you are between the ages of 18-30 see how you can join them!

GW Art Adds Life to the Walls of a Home

Two versions of GW Art’s ‘Elephant in the Room’ (Acrylic on Canvas) adding life to the walls of a home.

One elephant was not enough for GW Art’s client who is absolutely fond of elephants. The original and more vibrant, ‘Elephant in the room’ was supersized to balance the earth-toned version that was done for the Christmas 2018 Collection and they make a fantastic pair.

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.
