Wishing you a joyous holiday season and a New Year that is creative and light!
As we reflect on 2018, it has been our most productive year yet. We have held over 40 public events, opened 15 exhibitions, welcomed over 8000 guests from across New Providence, numerous Family Islands, regionally and internationally. We opened our Sculpture Garden and Fiona’s Theatre and heralded the beginning of key partnerships that have increased the ways that we can serve you, our greatest supporters. For this holiday season, the entire team at the NAGB wishes you a peaceful and restful time with family, friends and loved ones.
Having just opened the stellar NE9 “The Fruit and The Seed—our bi-annual exhibition showcasing the works of 38 Bahamian artists—which is exhibited across the upper galleries—we encourage those of you staying home for Christmas to bring your relatives to the NAGB and enjoy the fruits of our creative labour.
The ground floor houses the rich Permanent Exhibition “Hard Mouth: From the Tongue of the Ocean”, curated by assistant curators Richardo Barrett and Natalie Willis, with masterpieces by many of our greatest minds. We also welcome to you to see the Junkanoo inspired solo exhibition by Carlos Bain titled “Second to None.”
The NAGB is open to the public on Sunday December 23rd (for last minute Christmas shopping at the Mixed Media Museum Store, which is having a sale of up to 25% off storewide, including on our brand-spanking-new “Hope is a Weapon” NE9 T-shirts ) and will reopen on Thursday, December 27th through Sunday, December 30th.
Holidays are also observed on New Year’s Day, Tuesday, January 1st and Majority Rule Day on January 10th, however, our galleries will be open on all other days during our regular operating hours.
As we disperse to join our families, we hope that everyone travels and reaches in safety and that you all can enjoy this time of togetherness in serenity. Wishing you blessings and good cheer for the New Year and hoping to see you in 2019 for another incredible and uplifting year of art, community and culture.
