The National Gallery of Jamaica’s Last Sundays programme for October 25, 2015 will feature the Young Talent 2015 exhibition and a special musical performance by Michael Sean Harris.
Young Talent 2015, which continues until November 14, seeks to provide national exposure to new and emerging artists and to stimulate the development of Jamaican art in the process. Young Talent 2015 features ten artists under forty years old, namely: Greg Bailey, Alicia Brown, Katrina Coombs, Di-Andre Caprice Davis, Monique Gilpin, Domanie Hong, Howard Myrie, Richard Nattoo, Avagay Osborne, and Cosmo Whyte.
Michael Sean Harris has been an active and central member of the local and global music community for many years, as not only a member of The Little People and Teen Players Club, but also as a founding member of the Ashe Caribbean Performing Arts Ensemble. He has toured the U.S.A., the Caribbean and the U.K. with these groups and has also toured Europe in numerous lead vocalist roles; having also lent his smooth and rich voice to performances with Leo Sayer, Petra Berger Cheb Mami and Patricia Kaas. As a solo performer, Harris has touched the souls of audiences with a seamless merging of traditional folk, classical, popular and contemporary music of many regions of the world; infused it with a sensibility all his own.
As is now customary for Last Sundays, the doors will be open to the public from 11 am to 4 pm and the Michael Sean Harris performance starts at 1:30 pm. Admission and guided tours will be free. Contributions to our donations box are, however, much appreciated and help to fund exhibitions such as Young Talent 2015 and our Last Sundays programming. The gift and coffee shop will also be open for business.
