We Are One: A tribute to Bill Grace

Location :Morningside Gallery, Barbados Community College

Opening reception: October 22nd, 2014

Exhibition dates: October 22nd to November 5th, 2014


Bill Grace is remembered not only for his contribution as an artist but also as an educator, an environmentalist and a humanitarian. It was through his work that Bill most eloquently conveyed his philosophy of social responsibility, love and generosity, summed up in one of his favorite phrases, “We are one.” Bill was a very prolific and adventurous artist. The works in this exhibition which includes ceramics, sculpture, paintings and prints, are drawn in large part from private collections. Most collectors acquired multiple pieces of Bill’s work, often over a number of years. This is evidence of the way in which the artist touched the lives of his admirers through his work and it is through this work that his spirit and philosophy continue to radiate.
