Artists to display work at Horizons Art Gallery

Thursday, September 8, 2011
Trio of Ladies by Beverly Thomas.

A three-woman show packed with colour, energy and true Trini flavour will premiere at Horizons Art Gallery next Tuesday from 7 pm to 8.30 pm. The work of artists Karen Hale Jackson, Anne Louise Tam and Beverly Thomas will be on exhibit at the gallery until September 23. Born with a paintbrush in her hand, Hale Jackson has become well known for her local sceneries and florals. Though she took part in her first show in 2000 and has exhibited many times since, she happily views this new body of work as an evolution. Personal experience combined with new inspiration from talented local photographers has led to a freer style of painting, a style infused with a sense of joy and confidence.

Cacique-Award winning actress Tam has proven that she is talented and creative with a paintbrush as she is onstage. Inspired by the European Impressionists, she uses the broken-colour technique, using short, broken brushstrokes to create an effect with blurred outlines, so that the form seems to be partly dissolved. Using a bright tropical palate, she has effectively applied this technique to create this latest offering of seascapes, landscapes and local scenes. Thomas has created a body of work that reflects her own personality. Drawing on her love of her surroundings in the lush, green Santa Cruz Valley, and on her love of people and nature, her paintings are vibrant and vivid, full of colour and warmth. Thomas has augmented her usual subject matter of women, flowers and coconuts, with a return to her first love, the abstract.

She believes that art is emotions expressed on canvas, and hopes that her work reaches each viewer with positive energy and love.
