Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning (JCAL) proudly presents MOODS AND EXPRESSIONS, A Caribbean Sensation that celebrates Caribbean artists living in metropolitan, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, with some of whom were seen in the documentary film “Plight Of The Caribbean Artists.”
The MOODS AND EXPRESSIONS exhibition includes paintings, mixed media works and sculptures by Jean Dominique Volcy, Nigel Pierre, Patricia Brintle, Lennox Warner, Ava Tomlinson, Stanwyck Cromwell, David Wilson, and Carlton D. Murrell.
“Each of the eight artists approaches the theme in his/her own way, but with a common spirit of nostalgia-borrowing feelings and ideas of Afro-Caribbean life styles and culture, be it 2 or 3 dimensional,” states exhibition curator Carlton D. Murrell.
The exhibition will open to the public from August 23 to September 30, 2018. The public is invited to meet the artists at the opening reception on Thursday, August 23, 2018, 7 p.m. The Miller Gallery is open Monday through Saturday 10:00AM – 6:00PM
Open to the Public! After a triumphant return in 2017, Sunnyside Gardens Park is again hosting its annual Oktoberfest on Saturday 10/6 (rain date – 10/7) from 12:00-5:00pm. Join us as we transform the picnic grove into an authentic Bier garden serving craft beer and classic German-style foods, accompanied by live music and entertainment throughout the day! Our arts and crafts fair, Sunnyside Flea, will feature incredible work from local artists, with unique gifts for family and friends.
This family-friendly event will be rounded out with a huge pumpkin patch, kids crafts, and fair rides to keep children of all ages entertained on the field while adults enjoy all the bier garden has to offer. Open to the public and admission is free. Tickets for rides, activities, and refreshments will be available for purchase. Please no outside food or beverages. Scooters and bikes will not be permitted in the park during the event for safety reasons.
