The National Gallery of Jamaica continues its Last Sundays programming this Sunday with a performance by vocalist Nikeishia Barnes and the final day of viewing the exhibition Daylight Come... Picturing Dunkley's Jamaica , by master artist John Dunkley.

Barnes has become a fixture on the local entertainment scene ever since her debut in the Digicel Rising Stars competition back in 2006.

She has graced the stages of many music festivals in Jamaica and the wider Caribbean with her emotive, powerhouse vocals. She works within a wide variety of genres such as jazz, gospel, rhythm and blues, reggae, dancehall and more. Through her music she expresses aspects of her life such as motherhood, love, sacrifice, struggle and triumph. She has worked with producers such as Donovan Germaine, Anthony B and Ernie Wilks, and collaborated with Buju Banton. Her 7-track EP is titled Wounded in Love.

Daylight Come: Picturing Dunkley's Jamaica examines the happenings and culture of Jamaica during John Dunkley's life, and acts as an accompaniment to the now-closed exhibition, John Dunkley: Neither Day nor Night exhibition.

It explores themes such as immigration, tourism, and Jamaica's journey into the Nationalist era, while also taking a look at works by artists of his time-many of whom he would have interacted with.

Doors will open to the public from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. The performance by Nikeishia Barnes will begin at 1:30 p.m. As is customary at Last Sundays, admission and guided tours are free​, but contributions are accepted.
