The Super Plus Artist of the Year Competition showcases the work of artists who are under 40 years old. The prize? A solo exhibition at the Mutual Gallery which is the organising gallery. The fun part about this competition, in addition to being able to take stock of young Jamaican creativity, is that the public gets to vote. In addition to a jury prize there is also a public prize decided upon by the votes of visitors to the exhibition.
This year's young artists, who were selected from a larger group, are Marvin Bartley, Leasho Johnson, Berette McCaulay, Olivia McGilchrist. For more on their work visit the Mutual Gallery's Facebook Profile.
There is not much time left to choose as voting ends on Saturday, November 17 at 3 pm. The winners will be announced on Monday, November 19 and there will be a chance to discuss with the artists their works. (And there'll probably be wine and finger food as well.)
For more information, call 876 929 4302 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The Mutual Gallery is located at 2 Oxford Road, Kingston 5.
