In Honor of Glen Terry’s 50th birthday we have decided to stage a concert featuring all our favourite musicians, such as the man himself, Jerome Speldewinde, Ray Gomez, Revel Craig, Al Jochaim and a host of others. Including the very talented Mr. Boney Fields on trumpet and his wife, Nadege, on saxophone. Boney and Nadege are flying in from Paris to grace the occasion. Some of you may recollect listening to Boney play in 2005 when everyone ended up dancing in the rain! According to those who attended it was a fantastic concert. We expect no less from this one. Tickets available at Barefoot Gallery office. Rs. 1000/- Hope to see you all here.
Memories, Maps and Dreams: Josephine Balakrishnan, Colombo Sri Lanka
Memories, Maps & Dreams
An exhibition of paintings and prints by Josephine Balakrishnan
Opening August 13, 7:30 PM
Show runs August 14 – 31, 2011
Galle Road Colombo 3,
In eastern culture a dream can be a map; the dreamer a vehicle of the Divine. In western culture dreams refer to the psyche’s expression of the ego. In “Memories, Maps and Dreams,” Josephine Balakrishnan deciphers the mystery of dreams.
We see the western symbols that unlock the psyche and the messages. Balakrishnan ponders, “Do we live to dream, or dream to live?” The prints and paintings in this body of work address the question, “Why do we need maps when we always have a thread of memories and a myriad of dreams to lead us through each passage?”
With colors and birds flying, this show provides not only maps of moons, images of lovers walking, and references to the past and future, but seeks to reveal our own internal maps.

Music and song were at the fore
Watching, waiting for the right time
to score. As was escape, mainly to
explore. The mind transcends
but, always Here. Listening, right
to the end. Now, no more.
Paintings hung. Lighting fixed. Mo: No more.
Yet, he left a legacy and taught
generously. We will continue to uphold
the privy lessons – So obviously
zen like in the manifestation – Beautiful
and precise. Behold! A delight.
Art transformed in the Gallery delight.
Jaytissa and Chandrasekera bathed in
glorious light. Mohan dictates, A bow
he takes. The end results in a gasp
of wonder. Applause. Sometimes, rain and thunder
Opening night: guests mingle, drinks sprinkle, music jazz jingles.
Many teachers had he, the three M’s danced a jingle
Mike, Mahen, and Manik. Finally, Druvi.
(Quite the shaman guiding from Minali)
Ships sailed to distant shores, adventures.
Experienced Hendrix and then some
Traversed the world mindfully done
Home south to manage a hotel well done!
With wife and a child to be.
Successfully run, all had fun
Then came the JVP
Problems arose, the hotel closed
Back to Colombo, five aunts and he.
Met at Dom’s in 1991. A gentleman was he
Gave me a pipe. Then Topy died
and Jerome sang, praise be!
And (a fool on the hill)
706 emerged, behind Barefoot, luckily.
Space to see, with music and art and hilarity.
Mo was instrumental in running the gallery
A giver, a lover, a rarity
A giver, a lover, a rarity.
