The Business Social this week takes you into the July 4 celebrations held by the US Embassy in Kingston. The event was held ahead of the official day, but the celebration was no less engaging at the Jamaica Pegasus hotel in St Andrew.

We also take a look at the Fine Art Printmakers Association (FAPJ) Exhibition, which opened at The University of the West Indies Regional Headquarters on Wednesday, June 15, 2022.

Dubbed 'Di Times Change: Artists Respond to Climate Change & Environmental Challenges', the exhibition will continue until July 15. The Bluefields Villas Foundation (BVF) is one of several organisations supporting the environmental showcase, having donated a total of US$2,500 toward the cost of the exhibition venue for the four-week-long event, which will feature over 60 works from 23 artists. Do enjoy!
