Jacqueline Bishop’s latest newsletter features a photograph of one of Sane Mae Dunkley’s colorful, hand-made mats. Dunkley passed away last December, in Bishop’s words, “right at the moment when her hand-made mats were becoming known both in and outside of Jamaica.” [See Bishop’s tribute for her—“Master Jamaican Mat-Maker Sane Mae Dunkley Wove Together the Story of the Jamaican People in Her Works”—in the Jamaica Observer.
Issue 4 also covers recent exhibitions, such as “By the Rivers of Babylon” (SRO Gallery, Brooklyn, New York) and the artist’s participation at ART OMI Sculpture Garden and Artist Residency (Ghent, New York). In this post, she highlights a piece by fellow Jamaican artist Nari Ward: G.O.A.T.
She also brings attention to SX Salon’s most recent issue, which features her paintings “Landscape 1” and “Birds 1” and her poems: “Citron” and “New World Finches” [see http://smallaxe.net/sxsalon/poetry-prose/poems-jacqueline-bishop] as well as her most recent profiles, reviews and interviews in publications such as Jamaica Observer and The Huffington Post.
