In the spirit of the pirate code, we are taking care of our own and we invite you to help. Join us from 12-5pm Saturday, October 22nd. Stop by for a beer and bring anything you can to help those affected by hurricane Matthew. Share your plunder!
As we approach our 43rd year of Independence, the concept of motion is all too apt. When we think of legal and political motions, the notion of movement itself implies some sort of progression. No matter the circumstances, in the same way that water always flows and finds its way to the ocean despite the obstacles in the way, so it is that Antonius Roberts’ most recent exhibition, ‘Motion’ at his Hillside House gallery on Cumberland Street, intends to evolve Hillside.
Motion’ is more than just a series of paintings. It is a deliberate action to move Hillside House forward. During summer 2016 Hillside will expand its physical offerings and enrich its experience to provide a live, work studio space for artists. These eighteen sketches embody the energy that will motion Hillside House into a place where creative people live and cultural experiences come alive.
Hillside House was a bold and bright sight last Friday when Judith Papillon opened her most recent exhibition, Oceans 21, at the historic space. A self taught artist, Papillon lives and works on Andros, where she put down roots almost 20 years ago, after leaving her hometown in Quebec City.
There was a lively scene at Hillside House this past Tuesday when the gallery unveiled its newest exhibition, “Functional Sculpture”. A group show, Functional Sculpture features the works of John Beadle, John Cox, Tyrone Ferguson, Robin Hardy and gallery owner Antonius Roberts.
Enchanting the senses, artist Antonius Roberts and singer Keri Sherman will join forces at Hillside House with a dual-faceted show of sight and sound. An intimate event, the two-part exhibition is titled “Hallelujah” and its opening night will feature a selection of eight songs to be sung by Sherman and 10 of Roberts’ newest paintings.
Adding splashes of vibrancy and movement to the walls at Hillside House, artist and art teacher Marco Mullings is currently starring in a solo show at the historic mansion on Cumberland Street. Titled “Rhythm… Feel the Beat”, the exhibition opened on April 1 and features works inspired by Mullings’ passion for music.
