Holly Bynoe

The painting workshop series at the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas (NAGB), starting today, November 26, is just another side of our range of programming here.

Through the eyes of a tourist: Oh Island in the Sun, Funky Nassau

Holly Bynoe

How much more value can we get out of tourism by really investing in Nassau and promoting small businesses like walking tours, garden cafes, and tea shops along with waterside bars?

'Nomad of the Golden Hour' Greg Pesik’s photography as an educational moment at the DAF

NAGB

Art is often largely underestimated as a tool for education in schools. Outside of the use of art to illustrate a theme or provide a creative interpretation of a concept, the power of art as an inclusive and encompassing tool for understanding and looking at the world seems quite lost. Art opens up dialogue in such a vast catchment of topics in ways that other things just cannot, and in time for the ‘back to school’ rush, the photography of Greg Pesik, ‘Nomad of the Golden Hour’, currently on exhibit at the D’Aguilar Art Foundation (DAF) seeks to do just that - to open up the floor for encompassing all kinds of conversations about the world around us

NAGB

Keisha Oliver shares her interview with Tessa Whitehead for the Nassau Guardian:  While there may be some romance in the myth of the starving artist, the narrative of balancing the struggle to survive with one's creative passion is anything but glamorous. Fortunately, however, there are many Bahamian creatives who find employment that not only allows for financial stability but marries well in supporting and inspiring their first love as creators of art.
