The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas’ (NAGB) National Exhibition 9 (NE9) “The Fruit and The Seed” opened on Thursday, December 13th, 2018 to wild acclaim welcoming over 550 Bahamians and visitors of all ages, creeds and backgrounds.
The exhibition was formally opened by Director of Culture, Rowena Poitier-Sutherland, with a welcome committee from the NAGB including current Board Chair, Lawrence Bascom, Chief Curator, Holly Bynoe and Executive Director, Amanda Coulson, welcoming guests and setting the celebratory tone for the evening.
The Fruit and the Seed support the work of 38 Bahamian artists, writers, performers, thinkers, makers and doers and caps off a growing and momentous year for the NAGB. The National Exhibition is a biannual event, occurring two years and offers a moment of congregation where the creative community can come together and share, dialogue and celebrate the culmination of an excellent year.
As we close off our season for 2018, the NAGB would like to extend warm gratitude to everyone who has contributed to our year making it our most daring and successful one yet.
