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

D O R S K Y G A L L E R Y | Curatorial Programs is pleased to announce the continuation of its program of independently-curated exhibitions – Complicated Territory curated by Bridget Donlon, will open on Sunday, September 30, 2018 from 2:00-5:00 p.m. and remain on view through December 16, 2018. A color brochure with an essay by the curator has been published to accompany the exhibition.
Complicated Territory features three artists, Alex McQuilkin, Erin M. Riley, and Martha Tuttle, whose work encompasses a variety of media including painting, drawing, installation, and embroidery. Taking on traditionally feminine subjects and forms—interiors, domesticity, self-reflection, florals, pastels, handicraft—to explore and critique this identity and how it is regarded in society, these artists create work grounded in feminist (art) history, with cutting sensibilities of irony, detachment, sexuality, and pop culture saturation. Each creates work that delves into the complicated territory of a specific kind of female identity, psychology, and navigation of life.
Throughout the run of the exhibition, Dorsky Gallery Curatorial Programs will collect toiletries for donation to the Queens-based organization Hour Children, which provides assistance to incarcerated and formerly-incarcerated women and their children.

Each year in the month of October, a volunteer committee of Italian Americans plans a month-long celebration of culture and heritage. The theme for 2018 is “A Salute to Italian Women in America – Breaking Barriers…from Ellis Island to the Present.”
The NYC-wide IHCC is proud to salute to such an important event in the history of Italy.
For forty two years, the Italian Heritage & Culture Committee has organized events, concerts, exhibits, and lectures, celebrating Italian Culture. Each year a theme representative of the history and culture of Italy and Italian Americans is highlighted. The Committee promotes Italian culture by focusing on schools and taking a leadership role in promoting Italy and its cultural contributions.
