Shepherding Courage an artists’ talk to support “Medium: Practices and Routes of Spirituality and Mysticism”

On Friday, December 15th, starting at 6 p.m. The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas invites the general public to the first artists’ talk and gallery walk for our new exhibition “Medium: Practices and Routes of Spirituality and Mysticism,” which is on view through March 11th, 2018.

To be creative takes courage and to deal with faith in your practice requires a double dose of courage. Even though The Bahamas is largely a conservative Christian community, within the local creative community there are certain stigmas attached to work that deals with religion, spirituality and the varied ways that these are practiced,  in addition to a more intuitive understanding of creative practice and it’s alignment with higher callings and powers.  

We will be joined by Dionne Benjamin-Smith, Jace McKinney, Samantha Moree and Allan P. Wallace. They will take us through  their relationship to faith, and how they have been able to navigate society’s hardness while keeping the spirit of their practices alive and thriving.
