Timehri Transitions – Expanding Concepts in Guyana Art, is a comprehensive exhibition on display at the Wilmer Jennings Gallery, located on Manhattan’s 213 East 2nd Street, and showcases the works of a dozen of Guyana’s best and brightest old masters of painting and sculpting.
Damali Abrams, Carl Anderson, Dudley Charles, Victor Davson, Marlon Forrester, Gregory A. Henry, Siddiq Khan, Donald Locke, Andrew Lyght, Bernadette Persaud, Keisha Scarville and Arlingron Weithers are currently presenting inspiring works of art in the Kenkeleba House at the gallery.
Curator, Carl E. Hazelwood chose this group of artists because he said their work expresses everything from contemporary abstraction, to work that bears a subtle political or cultural critique.
“Timehri” in the title, Hazelwood explained symbolically connects “our endeavor to the first artists of Guyana, who produced the ancient Native American rock engravings and drawings”.
He praised the pieces that will be exhibited until March 9.
The Guyana Cultural Association NY sponsored the exhibition in part, while P. Daniel Faustin, Romesh Singh and Arlington Weithers provided material and other direct support.
