Event Description

One Love: An Exhibition Of Paintings By Richard Blackford

Artist Richard Blackford is passionate about cricket, people and the Jamaican way of life.

Jamaica had begun to experience social disintegration as a result of the clash of political ideologies between the ruling Peoples National Party and the opposition Jamaica Labour Party in the mid 1970s. Musician Bob Marley was invited by the warring factions to perform at a Peace Concert.

Marley invited the two party leaders on stage where he joined their hands to the tune "One Love"...

The Original Gallery, Hornsey Library

and

Jamaican Engineering: an Exhibition of paintings by Newton Matticks

After working for many years in the engineering industry Jamaican-born Newton Matticks turned his skills to documenting the everyday life of the ordinary person in Britain – work, current events, objects, etc… – in the form of artwork. And the colours and vitality of his Caribbean background just keep seeping through… Fabulous!
