JOIN US DOWNTOWN THIS SUNDAY AS WE PAINT THE CITY


Some of Jamaica’s leading visual artists, as well as upcoming talents, will showcase their work at the Kingston Creative’s Last Sunday’s ArtWalk scheduled for this Sunday, June 30, 2019, at Water Lane in Downtown Kingston.
 
This month will see fitness conscious patrons enjoying Lifeyard's Ride across Kingston event at 6:00am as they ride through scenic and historic Downtown Kingston. Following that, find your zen with a free community yoga session hosted by Afya Yoga Studio at 9:45am on the green beside the UDC car park. The visual artists' theme will come alive as the trio of Ulrick Lawrence, Cheryl Hylton, and Dane Harvey will come together to share their perspective as seen through their photographic lens as they find beauty in every day through nature, digital art and hidden gems of Jamaica.

The UWI Panoriddim steel band and DJ Iset Sankofa provide the music, and rounding off the day is Resonances, selections from the 2019 Edna Manley College Final Year Exhibition at 132 Harbour Street. Curated by Veerle Poupeye, the exhibition will feature six budding artists, Trishaunna Henry, Joni P. Gordon, Leanne Mair, Yulanah Mullings, Mark Robinson, and Keisha Walters.
 
Kingston Creative continues to bring together a unique blend of cultural entrepreneurship and innovation, powered by citizen engagement and community development. Over 70 volunteers have been investing their time and talent to kick-start an art district which will have a positive impact on tourism, community cohesion, jobs, and the creative economy.
 
Kingston Creative Co-Founder, Andrea Dempster-Chung was excited to be hosting what will be one of the largest and most diverse Artwalks to date, she said; “We are looking forward to seeing thousands of people turn out to enjoy what they love; whether it is rejuvenating yoga, a relaxing bike ride through the streets of historic Downtown Kingston or appreciate beautiful art and sculpture.”
 
Art Historian and Curator for the Resonances Art Exhibition, Veerle Poupeye, said;

“It is exciting to be able to show a selection of the best from the 2019 Edna Manley College Final Year exhibition in hat will be the first professional exhibition for most of the young artists involved. They are among Jamaica's newest artistic talents and their work represents new directions in local art. I expect a lot from them in the years to come. It is equally exciting to be able to do this in this beautiful warehouse space under renovation on Harbour Street, as it shows how some of the now-vacant and derelict spaces in Downtown Kingston could be rehabilitated into the gallery and studio spaces for artists, making the Downtown Art District a reality. The Jamaican art ecology would benefit greatly from such developments, which would allow the city of Kingston to assume its rightful place, regionally and internationally, as an international art center to be reckoned with.”
