The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas (NAGB) is hosting its upcoming annual All-Star Amateur Artists (AAA) presented by the NAGB Education Department.The AAA was designed to bring together emerging and amateur artists to display their work in a professional museum setting. The Gallery hopes this opportunity will encourage these artists to develop their skill and study within the arts.
AAA has been in existence for four years and displayed the captivating pieces of talented artists.
The theme for the fourth AAA is in keeping with the Gallery’s current exhibition entitled “Master Artists of The Bahamas” and “The Bahamian Collection”. Amateur artists are asked to create works that relate to the distinct styles of any Master Artist or portraiture that portray themes within either exhibition. Artists can submit up to two (2) works of art in any media and must be original work created after January 1st, 2013. Artists must email photographs of each work of art to [email protected] by Sunday, October 13th, 2013 at 5pm to be considered. Chosen artwork will be shown on the AAA Exhibition opening reception.
The AAA is open to amateur and nonprofessional artists only-from 12th grade senior and beyond. This event is not meant for established or professional artists or artists that have had previous exhibitions with the NAGB.
This event only comes once a year, so do not pass up the opportunity, whether it may be entering the AAA or attending the opening, for as Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Never lose an opportunity to see something beautiful, for beauty is God’s handwriting.”
For more information about the event or to volunteer at AAA, please call the Gallery at (242) 328.5800/1, Monday to Friday, 10am – 4pm.
