Gary Butte’s Showing

| October 31, 2018
I’ve known Gary for many years now, and have always wanted to visit his exhibitions, and at long last, I’ll be able to visit in November in Saint Lucia, although I’m sad to miss the Opening Night. Tell your family in Saint Lucia about it so they can experience the exhibition and the gallery.
A great introduction to Gary’s work is by Buki R Cahane, Art Curator & Founder of MeCurator:
“Gary Butte is an artist whose pieces resignate deep within me. His depictions of masks and faces painted with a thick tribal abstract tone, calls me home, to memories of growing up in Africa.  His first ‘Mask Parade’ Collection was exhbited in 2011 and toured across Dominican Republic, Martinique, Grenada, Guadeloupe and England.
The MeCurator Art Gallery will be home to Butte’s  ‘Mask Parade 2’ collection, featuring 16 paintings, all depicting masked characters that reflect the variance of cultures that form the Caribbean. As Jounen Kweyol draws to an end in St Lucia, we must never forget the diversity within the Caribbean people , which spreads across many regions and groups of people. Butte attempts to recareate these complex relationships by putting paint to canvas within this collection ‘Mask Parade 2’.
Butte’s signature style is bold, energetic and exposes the beauty in our multiculturality. Butte describes his work as an ” incoming tide of the waves, etching the shores of our land with a rich history of the people. With each wave that washes over the sand, another moment is shared, another memory is formed and another heart is touched.”
