Hosted by Horizons Art Gallery
Trinidad born, Beverly Valdez is an emerging artist whose work is strongly influenced by her Trinidadian heritage. Horizons Art Gallery is pleased to be hosting her first local exhibition, “Caribbean Abstractions”.
The colour, energy, and vibrancy of Trinidad’s Carnival have been a constant source of stimulus for Beverly’s work. Her greatest inspiration, however, is derived from her love of the Caribbean, with its rich culture, dramatic coastlines, and colonial architecture. Her work reflects the pulsating energy and colour that define Caribbean culture, geography, and landscape. Beverly works in acrylics, watercolour, collage and mixed media on paper, canvas, and wood.
Beverly has a strong artistic background. With a Master of Fine Arts degree from Howard University and more than 25 years experience as a Graphic Design Manager and Creative Director in the design and communications field, she began painting as a full-time artist in 2018. Beverly has exhibited her work in several group shows in the United States. Her paintings are to be found in collections in the USA and the Caribbean. Clearly part of an artistic family, Beverly’s nieces, Tonya and Sonel Rowley, daughters of her sister, Sharon Clark-Rowley, and the Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley, have also exhibited their work at Horizons.
Beverly Valdez’ exhibition “Caribbean Abstractions” opens at Horizons Art Gallery on Tuesday 19th February 2019 from 7:00pm to 8:30 pm, and will continue until March 9th 2019. The Gallery is located at #37 Mucurapo Road, St. James. Opening hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Mondays to Fridays, and 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays. Please call 628-9769 for further details.
