A piece of art from the SM Warner collection.

After the successful hosting of Danielle Boodoo-Fortune’s Inspirited and AJ Rogers with Impression, Uncorked Wines and Spirits Limited, in collaboration with The Fashion Arch Gallery, continues its local art exhibition series at Uncorked, located on Tragarete Road, Port-of-Spain.

To wrap up its installations for 2017, Uncorked is introducing a collection of art pieces by artist Sheldon Martin Warner from past exhibitions and new pieces that include acrylic on canvas, miniature canvas pieces, limited prints and hand painted tableware (glasses and tea sets). The exhibition is titled BELIEVE.

Sheldon M Warner is the artist and textile surface designer behind the brand SM Warner: artwithattitude. His philosophy revolves around creating an offering that is unique and reflective of craftsmanship. The emphasis, therefore, is on the conceptualisation and creation of original art in the form of wearable art, acrylic on canvas, fabric, pottery and glassware. The brand is a true representation of an artistic lifestyle experience.

A former student of Queen’s Royal College, Warner was taught art by well-known artist Jackie Hinkson. He is a member of the Art Society of T&T and has participated in the Society’s annual exhibitions. He has also hosted solo exhibitions - Finally (2009); A Gift of Colour (2010); Me…You…We. All One (2015); and, All One (2016).

Warner is inspired by the vibes of the Caribbean people. “The way we walk, the way we dance, the way we move, even our motion when we talk. That flow...that feel...that colour,” said the artist.
“Life is truly a journey, sometimes filled with challenges as we go along our way,” he added. “No matter how difficult it may get we have to remain focus on our dream. Live in the moment. Through it all...BELIEVE.”

On the fashion scene SM Warner has shown collections at various fashion weeks – Barbados Fashion Week (2011); San Fernando Fashion Week (2012 and 2013); Red Runway (2013 and 2014); Styleweek POS (2014); and, UWI Instyle (2017).

BELIEVE opens tomorrow, at 6 pm to 9 pm, and runs until December 22, during the hours of 10 am–6 pm from Monday to Friday, and 10 am–4 pm on Saturdays. For more information please email [email protected] or [email protected]
