name is Terrannise Taylor and I am a twelfth grade student at C.C.Sweeting
senior High School. For my job experience I was placed at the National Art Gallery of the Bahamas. This
past week I was blessed to work with , if you ask me , the best team ever.
Which consist of Ms. Benjamin, Ms.Pratt, Ms. Wright , Ms Knowles and Mrs.
Coulson ,the director here at the gallery. I was also able to tour the gallery
and view the end products of hard work , dedication, and time, from the various
artists around The Bahamas. Here at the gallery I got to meet and mingle with a
few of our local artist such as Antonious Roberts, Jackson Petit- Homme and
Robin Hardy. At the Hillside House Mr. Hardy demonstrated how to create a
pendant entirely out of mahogany wood using a mini-Lithe machine.
experience was incredible! During my time here I also had a little history
lesson with Ms. Benjamin. Comes to find out that the gallery was actually a
house! And the present storage house was once a stable for horses. My fellow interns
and I created a design for the gallery bins to promote recycling. I believe our
designs were really cool but don’t just take my word visit the gallery and see
it for yourself. Here at the gallery , each Easter a Family Fun Day is held, my
colleagues and I created the designs for the Easter masks, and a lot of hard
work went into those ( so those children better like them!)!
My craving for organizing was also satisfied, as I had to sort out cards and
other miscellaneous files, which believe it or not I enjoyed! I will never
forget the laughs, jokes, conversations, and advice shared here between the
gallery team and myself. I will be sure to return if only to , you know hail or
crack a joke! And oh how could I forget the gallery pot cakes that watched my
every move, and growled at me , let’s not forget that . I will forever have a
fear of dogs thanks to them J this was a memorable experience and from a scale of 1 to 10, I’ll
give an 11!
