April 4, 2013

The old Phase 1 Video store in Smith’s has been transformed into a haven for artists, and the temporary gallery has been labelled “Art & Jam”.

Art & Jam revised April 2-13

Organiser Ronnie Chameau invited artists that she thought would bring the best range of Bermudian talent together. “Sometimes something wonderful happens, and I was offered this space to do what I wanted. The chance of a life time,” said Mrs Chameau.”This is a revolving show. Which means that artists change and add to their displays every week. ”

The Jam Session itself starts at 4pm led by Ronnie Lopes and Toni Bari and all musicians are welcome to join in. Mrs. Chameau said, “We would love to have anyone that can join in the jam session to please come and share your talent.”
