Jamaica Gleaner - - 24/7 Twist -

This year’s Fre­s­haz Fête for the Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy, Ja­maica (UTech), West­ern Cam­pus, is ti­tled Gold Coast and will take place to­mor­row at the Sea Gar­dens Beach on the hip strip in Mon­tego Bay, St James.

David Cado­gan, en­ter­tain­ment co­or­di­na­tor of the UTech Stu­dents’ Union Sub-Coun­cil, says 20 per cent of the event’s profit will be con­trib­uted to the Blessed As­sur­ance Mustard Seed Chil­dren’s home. A por­tion of the profit will also go to­wards a tag drive in Novem­ber by UTech’s West­ern Cam­pus Stu­dents’ Union Sub-Coun­cil.

Pro­ceeds from the tag drive will be do­nated to the same char­ity and se­lected UTech stu­dents faced with fi­nan­cial chal­lenges.

Gold Coast goes from 2 p.m. un­til mid­night. Pre-sold tick­ets for reg­u­lar en­try cost $600, while VIP tick­ets are $1,200. At the gate, reg­u­lar en­try is $800 with col­lege ID and $1,000 with­out. VIP will cost $1,500. A spe­cial VVIP pack­age pack­age costs $30,000 and in­cludes five tick­ets, a ca­bana, two chasers and a bot­tle of Hen­nessy or Remy Martin.

Se­lec­tors in­clude DJ Chro­matic, DJ Jigga, and DJ Scott The Supreme. There will also be a spe­cial ap­pear­ance by Jeeby The Lyri­cist.

A shut­tle ser­vice from Bay West to the venue will run for ev­ery hour from 6 p.m.-11 p.m.

Carol Crich­ton’s ex­hi­bi­tion of paint­ings will open next Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 6, at 6 p.m. in the Olympia Gallery, 202 Old Hope Road, St Andrew. It will be opened by Sen­a­tor Tom Tavares-Fin­son CD, QC, pres­i­dent of the Se­nate. The sen­a­tor is also chair­man of the Na­tional Gallery of Ja­maica.

Largely through works on can­vas, Crich­ton ex­plores themes based on a per­spec­tive of Ja­maica and an on­go­ing di­a­logue with per­sonal and universal is­sues. Al­though it is her first solo show in many years, she ex­hibits reg­u­larly in sig­nif­i­cant group ex­hi­bi­tions.

Writer and critic An­nie Paul said “hers is a rest­less brush, wan­der­ing all over the sur­face of the is­land with a car­tog­ra­pher’s cu­rios­ity, not merely to pro­duce ster­ile land­scapes but also slic­ing into the psy­chic and cul­tural im­agery un­der­pin­ning the Ja­maican na­tion­scape.”

The ex­hi­bi­tion con­tin­ues un­til Oc­to­ber 22.
