last night was the launch of a dready art show at Round Hill hotel.
very cool for me because i’ve exhibited in many places but never jamaican themed art, back at home in jamaica.
it was a double whammy of an evening, actually, because at the exact same time as i was exhibiting in jamaica i was, back in cayman, being inducted into the national collection of the national gallery of the cayman islands.
round hill is lovely; in olden days, when i was more yute-ish, mummy was close with the manager – a lovely man named john terry – and we’d go there on weekends to see JT and hang out and t’ing.
round hill was started by john pringle – pringle was 1st cousin to my godfather and they’d grown up in the same house – and especially late in his life i spent some really nice time with pringle in cayman – oddly, his was also a funeral that i’ll well remember and perhaps the only funeral i’ve ever been invited to.
so anyhow, nice nice to be there hanging out and being hung with – i felt really loved by a lot of people; by friends and family and guests of the hotel.
