The Blank Canvas, June 14, 2017, Abby Smith and Jackson Petit

This week’s Black Canvas is hosted by the NAGB’s Communication & Development Officer, Malika Pryor-Martin, filling in for our Director, Amanda Coulson. Joining her in the studio are our Community Outreach Officer, Abby Smith and Jackson Petit, Digital Media Administrator.

The NAGB”s traveling exhibition, MAX/AMOS, is the focus of their lively and spirited discussion and explores the work of the two legendary Bahamian artists for whom the exhibition is aptly named, Maxwell (Max) Taylor and Amos Ferguson. The episode will take the audience from Freeport, the exhibition’s first Family Island visit to Exuma, where the exhibition will travel next in September.

Abby and Jackson, also talented practising artists, share how Bahamian masters have inspired and influenced their work as we hope the National Art Gallery’s traveling exhibition, MAX/AMOS will inspire another generation of creators throughout the archipelago.
