On Wednesday, October 17, 2012 I attended a private viewing of Cecil Cooper's most recent works at the Mutual Gallery in Kingston. I got the opportunity to meet the artist who is one of Jamaica's most respected painters and saw his new collection first hand in esteemed company. The most exciting part about the event was the raffle to give away one of his paintings worth over $2000 USD. Unfortunately I didn't win but the event was a wonderful experience. Mr. Cooper not only gave away one but TWO paintings, the second being a gift to a long time friend, Ms. Leonie Forbes. For those of you who aren't familiar with Leonie Forbes, she is one of Jamaica's most revered actresses. I was extremely honoured to meet her and to be in her presence. The ambiance of the show was lovely - food and wine was served; the patrons mingled; the presentations were entertaining; and over all I am impressed with the work I saw. Cecil Cooper's show is open to the public and will run until the 26th of October. Go check it out and take a look at all my images from the night here!
