WOMA 2012: Home & Away

Caribbean Art project and 4Hr Nap Collective will host Women Make Art (WOMA) 2012, “Home & Away”, an art exhibition featuring over 30 women artists from the Caribbean and the diaspora. The show includes emerging and professional Grenadian artists as well as artists from Trinidad, Jamaica, Haiti, Aruba, and the Bahamas and working in Canada, the US, the UK and Germany.

This diverse group of women will share works that have interpreted the theme “Home & Away” in unique ways. Through their use of diverse media: painting, illustration, photography, and mixed media these artists seek to deal with many aspects of the identity and place - of distance, of the working woman, and of life in the diaspora.

Chan says “This year we decided to expand our reach and invite artists from the region to join us. We are not disappointed – we are showing works by some of the region’s top contemporary artists like Olivia McGilchrist (Jamaica) and Florine Demosthene (Haiti/NY).” On the Grenadian art selection, Byer is excited, “We have full range of work – painting, digital art, photography, weaving and metal work, with artists like Malaika Brooks-Smith-Lowe, Cecilia Younger, GĂ©raldine Le Leannec and Kato Charles.” The show will also feature a guest street artist installation outside the Gallery building from Trinidad-based team Pinky and Emigrante.

Caribbean Art project (CAp) has previously hosted exhibitions with prolific Grenadian and international artists. Their mission involves informing, educating, documenting and exhibiting Caribbean artists, building a database, and allowing individual development and sales opportunities, as well as facilitating development in artist and collector communities. Erik Johnson and Meg Conlon direct the organization, and have partnered with 4Hr Nap once more for this show. 

4Hr Nap is an art collective that visual artists Stacey Byer and Tracey Chan have created as a framework for creativity, inspiration, exhibition and education. Their vision is to contribute to local and international art communities; create opportunities for Caribbean artists through exhibitions and events; and collaborate with other professional artists and groups. Their talents form a fluid team with dynamic energy that offers fresh, innovative ideas. They have been working together since March 2011, curating Grenada’s first all women art exhibition, Women Make Art (WOMA) and November 2011’s “Paradise”.

The exhibition’s opening reception on Saturday, March 31st is at 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm at the Gallery, Paddock, St. George’s (Springs-Belmont Junction - below Europa). Weekday openings are Monday to Friday, 9am - 5pm, Thursday 6-8pm, and weekends, 11am - 5pm or by appointment. The show runs until Saturday 14th April, 2012.
