Blank Canvas: December 22nd, 2021 featuring artists Elkino Dames and Sofia Whitehead

On this week’s “NAGB’s Blank Canvas”, your host Amanda Coulson meets with two more artists from the current exhibition “Evolution of the Arc” at the NAGB. Elkino Dames is a painter living and working in North Andros and Sofia Whitehead is a photographer living on a boat and working throughout the archipelago. For this exhibition, both were paired with Bahamian historic artists—Dames with Amos Ferguson and Whitehead with Roland Rose—to add greater depth to the exhibit. Both artists speak to their experiences living and working outside of the capital city and island and reflect on changes or opportunities they see within our archipelago, in keeping with the exhibition’s theme.

“Blank Canvas” airs each Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. on Guardian Talk Radio 96.9FM.
