The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Art en­thu­si­asts and the gen­eral pub­lic are in­vited to an art ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tur­ing fine artist Jonathan Gladding (JAG) as he stages his most re­cent col­lec­tion of works at The In­ner Gallery from now un­til the 6th De­cem­ber, 2014.

Gladding has pro­duced a won­der­ful ar­ray of works, full of colour and cul­ture in his unique style of re­al­ism. His medium is oil on can­vas; the sizes vary widely. With over forty paint­ings on dis­play, there is some­thing for ev­ery­one in this col­lec­tion, with his paint­ings burst­ing with the artis­tic in­spi­ra­tion that we have come to love as a sig­na­ture part of his work. The artist’s love of Saint Lu­cia is vividly ev­i­dent through­out his art­work; his ac­com­plished tal­ent un­de­ni­able.

When asked about the art­work, Cu­ra­tor Rachael du Boulay says, “I have so many favourites in this 2014 col­lec­tion of re­cent works by Jonathan Gladding (JAG) ti­tled “Twadisyon”, that I find it im­pos­si­ble to choose just one piece. I am also so look­ing for­ward to the joy and ex­cite­ment that guests ex­pe­ri­ence when they get one on one with the paint­ings and ex­pe­ri­ence their favourites in­ti­mately.”

The pro­gramme of events also in­cludes on Fri­day 28th Novem­ber, 10:00 am to 2:00 pm a Schools’ Open House with the artist, sched­uled at The In­ner Gallery, and on Satur­day 29th Novem­ber, the artist him­self will be at the Bay­walk Mall, 2nd Floor be­tween the hours of 10:00 am and 2:00 pm do­ing a paint­ing demon­stra­tion.

Two of Gladding’s paint­ings will also be auc­tioned to raise funds for ECHO-Lab and Pawasol pou ti Ma­may. ECHO-Lab is short for the En­vi­ron­men­tal Con­ser­va­tion and Her­itage Or­ga­ni­za­tion of La­borie, es­tab­lished April 16th, 1992 by a group of teach­ers. Their Mis­sion State­ment is to de­velop aware­ness of the need to con­serve the nat­u­ral and cul­tural en­vi­ron­ment, and pro­mote sus­tain­able liv­ing prac­tices through com­mu­nity ed­u­ca­tion and com­mu­nity par­tic­i­pa­tion. Pawasol pou ti Ma­may - Um­brella for the lit­tle Kids - is a char­ity which raises funds for chil­dren in Saint Lu­cia.

Open­ing hours at The In­ner Gallery are Mon­day to Fri­day 8:30am to 4:30pm and it is eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble, sit­u­ated right on the Bois D’Orange high­way.
