PERSONAL VISION: Artist Hope Brooks, whose last exhibition dates back to 1989, will unveil samples of her work at the Mutual Gallery, with a showcase dubbed “People and Their Stories – Then and Now!” which has been in preparation since 2008. The exhibition (including "Terra Cotta and Blue Bottle," above) will open on July at 7 pm and is staged in partnership with National Commercial Bank, Carreras, Capital and Credit Merchant Bank, Ideal Portfolio Services, Wray & Nephew, RBTT, Super Plus food stores, Island Mist, NEM, BCIC, Scotia Private Banking and KOOL 97 FM. In the new exhibition, Brooks investigates her concern with Jamaica’s past history and more specifically slavery and how this history has impacted the next generations.
