#CARIBBEANARTSTORIES: Art Initiative

Overview

The stories of Caribbean artists form an important contribution to the art world: past, present and future. #CaribbeanArtStories is the inaugural Gallery OCA initiative that amplifies the voices and artwork of Caribbean artists, capturing and showcasing their inspiring works, and telling the personal stories of their life journey.


It is important that these stories are told and kept alive, not forgotten. So is the context for Gallery OCA, says Sherece  “our stories connect us to our roots and to each other, acting as a bridge between our pasts and the future.” 

 

#CaribbeanArtStories was the first of many initiatives that promoted key artists born and raised in the Caribbean. It told their life stories: exploring ancestry, childhood, life as an artist, history, creative inspiration, passions, challenges, and hopes for the future.  Each month Gallery OCA showcased one feature artist on the whole of the homepage.
