The National Gallery of Jamaica’s Last Sundays will feature a performance by the band BLACK as COLE.
Brainchild of songstress Cecile Black and bassist Craig Cole, BLACK as COLE’s performance style is a fusion of different genres: Alternative, Blues, Gospel, R&B, Reggae/Dub-Rock which they have integrated into a base component of Reggae and Dub; the result is a new genre that the band calls Jam-on- Dub.
The National Gallery of Jamaica is pleased to announce the creation of the Dawn Scott Memorial Award, which will be presented to one artist participating in its Jamaica Biennial 2014exhibition, which will be on public view from December 7, 2014 to March 15, 2015.
The National Gallery of Jamaica is the oldest and largest public art museum in the English-speaking Caribbean. It originally opened at the historic Devon House on November 14, 1974 and will be celebrating its fortieth anniversary this year. Devon House was a beautiful and popular location but the National Gallery quickly outgrew the premises because of its expanding collections and exhibition programme.
