June 2024: 441 or Four Artists, Four Styles, One Show

441, or Four Artists, Four Styles, One Show, was on view in the Rick Faries Gallery from June 7 - July 2. 441 is a recurring group show that features emerging local artists. This year, 441 showcased the multi-disciplinary talents of The Healer (Kayuntae Ming), Eira McHugh, Kayla Jackson, and Sabriyya Harvey, who work with many mediums including painting, drawing, and collage.

Sabriyya Harvey is an educator and painter whose practice explores collective identity and its effect on culture-keeping and tradition in diverse examples of “community”. Sabriyya holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Mount Allison University, New Brunswick (2021) and a Bachelor of Education from Brock University, Ontario (2023).

Her artwork has been represented in the Bermuda National Gallery’s Bermuda Biennial (2022) as well as numerous collaborative projects and exhibitions locally and overseas, in Canada and the US.

Eira McHugh is figurative painter, working primarily in drawing and painting. Her artist statement is as follows:

“I changed my name to Eira a few years ago as my first real decision and choice I made for myself. It is still my proudest moment in life.”

Kayla Jackson is a figurative painter, working primarily in acrylic in a colourful and nostalgic expressionist style. Her work is about highlighting and elevating moments of everyday life often overlooked in traditional portrayals of island living, with a focus on the black, and particularly female, experience.

The Healer is an intuitive, multidisciplinary artist who works across various mediums such as painting, drawing, textiles, and collage. Her artist statement is as follows:


Born near d sea.

Trees all around me,

and a Loving family.

Eye M surrounded by gems, so that says everything about me really.

My art is usually from the point of view of my younger self.

My bestie.
