The Pan American Art Gallery presents Jamaica: Color in Art. The breadth of style and iconography creates a rich and diverse landscape for Jamaican painting on the background of the island's colors and vibrancy. From addressing political and religious movements in radical compositions such as in the work of Omari Ra, to capturing the soft and subtle nuances of color and light in the work of Hope Brooks, Jamaican artists paint their world as they see and feel it.
Milton George, an expressionist artist who has embraced a world vision of art, will be at the opening reception. Milton carries his canvas as his journal to document his domestic life, painting the conflicts and joys, and his inner self, his growth and soul searching as well as the conflicts in the world at large which deeply affect him.
The artists featured in the show in addition to Milton George are: Omari Ra (-African), Hope Brooks, Eric Cadien, George Rodney, and Petrona Morrison.
