The Annabella & Peter Proudlock Collection, a thoroughly impressive art treasury of the late English fashion model-turned-art gallerist and her accountant-cum-art enthusiast hubby, which also serves as a rich documentation of Jamaican and Caribbean art exponents over a 40-year span, was unveiled to rapturous feedback at the National Gallery last Sunday afternoon.

The art-loving couple's surviving children, fashion designer Jessica Ogden and her advertising and marketing executive brother Sebastian deemed it befitting, and rightfully so, to celebrate the legacy bequeathed unto them.

The dearly departed Proudlocks, avid art collectors who together oversaw operations and hosted exhibitions at their Harmony Hall Gallery in St Mary, championing and mounting the work of such culturally relevant artists as Mallica 'Kapo' Reynolds, Colin Garland, Albert Huie, and Cecil Cooper, had a particularly keen interest in promoting artists from both the Rock and the wider region, and the just-launched tribute exhibition in their honour offers visual notes of the pair's cultivated decades-long art appreciation.
