'Don't Stop the Carnival' celebration event, Saturday, 23rd April: 1pm - 4pm

 We would like to invite you to the Preview of this unique exhibition which aims to enable visitors to discover the joys, the endeavors and the need to express differing cultural values of three recognized artists, and how they each come to terms with personal, universal, and historical events in their own inimitable style.

 Mohammed Djazmi has said, 'I wanted to portray the social suffering which I encountered...' together with ‘…the problems faced by ordinary people, who live in unfair autocracies....'

 Mohammed Djazmi was a gifted, yet modest artist, who was sensitive, and had a strong sense of humanity. Throughout his career, Mohammed spoke the truth on his canvas, and in his prints and drawings.

Deanna Tyson and John Lyons are honored to share and celebrate the memory of his life and work in this exceptional exhibition.

 Deanna Tyson is known for her challenging yet delicate touch of dynamic imagery, whilst John Lyons searches forces beneath the surface of things to show their personal, creative, and universal interconnectedness.

 Be prepared; in Cultural Connections, you will find the extraordinary and the inspiring in a major, life-enhancing exhibition. This is an exhibition not to be missed; their work will delight and awaken your senses.

 We look forward to seeing you there.
