An art exhibit opening at the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition’s Salon Gallery in Red Hook on May 12 will display the work of artists from Dominica and other parts of the Caribbean hit by Hurricane Maria, reports Alexandra Simon in Brooklyn Paper.

The curator of “Dominica – After Maria,” who is Jamaican and first visited Dominica in 2010 where she formed relationships with local artists, explained the purpose of the exhibit.

“I organized this exhibit with the inclusion of other Caribbean artists because I wanted them to get the opportunity where people can support them and buy their work, or donate to the Caribbean disaster management,” said Donna Mason.

One of the artists, Puerto Rican Johnny Camacho, “says the exhibit is a rare chance for visitors to see the aftermath of a natural disaster though the eyes of artists who were affected.”
