WEDNESDAY, JULY 18: The Art Centre in Dockyard is opening three completely different shows that bring together beautiful scenery, strange dolls and interpretations of the wild.
The show this Sunday includes a colourful mixture of Bermuda scenery taken by photographer Voorhees Joell.
His show entitled The Isle of Devils will be mounted in the Astwood room.
Mr Joell said: “I love to take pictures and record everything.
“The theme this year is Bermuda — colourfully enhanced. I really enjoy commercial work, and wildlife photography — my favourite subjects are animals, especially the longtail birds.
“A real-life situation that inspired me… was when I was walking along the beach one day and out of nowhere a longtail sat on the sand in front of me.
“I quickly got off a shot just before it flew off. However, the camera was not set right (I shoot manual) and the shot was not very good. But I still have it.”
The second show is It’s a Doll’s World featuring a “weird and wonderful” collection of dolls. the dolls come in all shapes and sizes and are made of all sorts of materials.
Ami Zanders has used her trademark colourful woollen braid wraps to cover the bodies of Barbie Dolls, Nahed Eid’s doll appears to have been made of kitchen utensils and other household objects, while Keitha Bassett has created hers with a multitude of fabrics.
Administrator at the Art Centre at Dockyard Heidi Cowen said: “We are very excited about this show, as 10 per cent of all sales made will be donated to the Women’s Resource Centre.”
Finally, in the gallery’s main exhibition space is a members’ show called Walk on the Wild Side, a theme that has been left open to the artists’ interpretation.
So far included in this section are two pieces by abstract artist Kok Wan Lee, oil paintings of elephants by Christopher Grimes, and some Gombey dancers by Ms Cowen.
All three shows will be opening this Sunday from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. The shows will run until August 24. The Arts Centre at Dockyard is open every day from 10am to 5pm and is wheel chair accessible. Admission is free.
