Proceeds from this event will be directed towards supporting the Edward Gartland Youth Centre. The night promises an open bar, tantalizing canapés, food stations, and live entertainment.

In “Fresh Paint,” 30 contemporary artists delve into the medium of painting in its broadest sense. Each piece is strikingly different than the next, revealing to us the nuanced and complex ways painting can change depending on who is holding the brush. Sometimes by bringing together similar artworks (in this case, similar in media only), their differences are pulled forth, drawn out in ways that are unique to each artist. In the exhibition, you’ll find non-representational works that highlight the medium through impasto brushwork, color-field paintings that show off paint’s saturated hues, rich landscapes that display the artists’ skills in painting, and so much more!

Known for depicting his subjects bathed in saturated colours, HezronH presents select works from his DEUS collection on Artsy in collaboration with Black Pony Gallery. The works transpose the western depiction of the archetypical medieval and renaissance central figure with a BIPOC protagonist, offering commentary on their place in the wider narrative of modern social/class structure and its relationship to communication with the divine. 

Black Pony Gallery based in Bermuda presents a perspective on the contemporary art world of the Atlantic and artists challenging the definition of traditional ‘Island art’. The visual art movement in the Atlantic World is rich with talent and has so much to offer. Black Pony Gallery intends to gain awareness of and appreciation for these artistic voices. Featuring emerging to established artists who reside in the Azores, Bermuda, Cuba, The Bahamas, Cayman, and most recently Turks and Caicos Islands; the gallery aims to participate in international exhibitions, fairs, biennials, and projects that elevate art from the Atlantic World. Black Pony Gallery is produced by Lisa Howie, former executive director of Bermuda National Gallery, and founder of the Atlantic World Art Fair.

The exhibition goes live on August 12th, 2022, on Artsy.
