[Many thanks to Peter Jordens for sharing this post.] St. Stephen Walbrook (located at 39 Walbrook, London) is hosting an exhibition of Jamaican paintings and sculptures until July 14, 2017. “Jamaican Spiritual” opened on July 3, 2017.
The exhibition is open on weekdays only, from 10am to 4pm (Wednesdays: 11am – 3pm). The exhibition has been organised and curated by Jamaican art collector and promoter Theresa Roberts (founder of Art Jamaica, http://www.art-jamaica.org).
There are works by old Jamaican masters but the majority of pieces are new and were created specifically for the show by young Jamaican artists. The exhibition will also feature selected work from Theresa Roberts’ own extensive collection. Mediums represented include painting, sculpture and photography.
In keeping with the setting, all the work revolves around spiritual themes drawn from the variety of world religions which exist in Jamaica itself. Whilst predominantly Christian, Jamaica is home to a wide variety of religions and spiritual beliefs. The show represents the vibrancy and cultural diversity of Jamaica in a uniquely spiritual way.
