The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas invites you to the exhibition opening reception and awards ceremony for our Mixed Media Art Summer Camp on Thursday, August 1st, 2019, 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. We begin in Fiona’s Theatre then move to the Project Space Room where the exhibit will be on display.

This summer’s theme was “Parading through the Caribbean” and it allowed campers to explore indigenous festivals throughout the region. Festival experiences included Kadooment from Barbados, Ole Mas from Trinidad & Tobago, Rara from Haiti and Diwali from Guyana. In addition to creating individual works, campers worked with artist Jevon Thompson to paint three murals on the museum’s property.

Join us on August 1st to experience the vibrant and fresh talent of our young creatives! Light refreshments will be served. The Mixed Media Art Summer Camp Exhibition will be on display through August 25th, 2019.
