Okay, how can I begin, but to say how I loved my job training experience. Day one of my job training I had a wonderful chance to meet Miss Pratt. She is a kind and very sweet person to meet and know. My first day on Tuesday at The National Art Gallery was a little bit boring. I was getting to know everybody since I am the new girl, but I got a chance to look around and see the most amazing pictures, drawings, and paintings.

My experience as an intern at the National Art Gallery Bahamas, was a phenomenal one. On the first day, February 3, 2014, I took a tour of the building for the first time. Just walking through the gallery was fascinating, seeing the strange, yet intriguing designs of some of the best artist in The Bahamas and some who even worked here. When I went upstairs to the exhibition Swan Song of The Flamingo, based on the sinking of the flamingo, I was shocked at the information displayed that I was not previously aware of. Walking through the exhibition, made me feel as though I was experiencing this incident.

Starting our internship, another intern, Ashante, and I were given a brief tour of the grounds in order to familiarize ourselves with the building and its history. We also read catalogues concerning exhibitions that were on display at the time to get an idea of what has been happening inside the gallery, as well as gain some knowledge about famous Bahamian artists.

Monday June 24th signifies the day I stepped into a whole new world of art that I have been blind to all my life. On this day, I took a step towards my future. On this day, I became an intern at the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas. At first I had no clue what exactly to expect during this eye-opening journey. Of course I knew art would be involved, but I also knew that there was more to it.

My name is Terrannise Taylor and I am a twelfth grade student at C.C.Sweeting senior High School. For my job experience I was placed at the National Art Gallery of the Bahamas. This past week I was blessed to work with, if you ask me, the best team ever. Which consist of Ms. Benjamin, Ms.Pratt, Ms. Wright , Ms Knowles and Mrs. Coulson, the director here at the gallery. I was also able to tour the gallery and view the end products of hard work, dedication, and time, from the various artists around The Bahamas. Here at the gallery I got to meet and mingle with a few of our local artist such as Antonius Roberts, Jackson Petit-Homme and Robin Hardy. At the Hillside House Mr. Hardy demonstrated how to create a pendant entirely out of mahogany wood using a mini-Lithe machine.

My overall experience at the art gallery has been a great time I learn about the gallery and its history. I interacted with new people and learn about Bahamian artist and what are their inspiration. My colleagues and I painted a garbage bin that will be used for recycling so I left a part or me here. So a part of my art will always be here. I wish I could stay here forever. This has been one of my greatest time working.

NAGB Intern: Neil Cleare

NAGB

Hi everyone, I’m Neil Cleare - a young and upcoming artist. I have lived in an artful environment all my life. Being guided by my father, and inspired by many other artists, I decided to place my focus in the area of art. When I was a young boy, I began drawing comics and cartoons, and I still do to this day. I’ve had many accomplishments with art, such as subject prizes, obtaining an A on the art BJC, and also doing my part in the mural paintings at the humane society. When I finish school, I would hope a career in either art, or athletics. To get an exposure to the career that art offers, I applied for the Summer Work Study Program at The National Art Gallery of the Bahamas.
