Upcoming exhibitions in the NAGB fall calendar

MMASC Celebrates Young Artists with opening
NAGB's Mixed Media Art Summer Camp would like to invite you to join us
for its second annual MMASC 2018 Exhibition Opening and it's happening
later today! This year's theme, "Back to da Island" was an homage to
the remarkable craft legacy of our Family Islands.
This event begins at 6 pm. and is free and open to the public.
year's "Double Dutch" moves into its seventh iteration with "Hot
Water." Opening on Thursday, August 23rd, the environmental and
sustainably-focused project sets its eyes on Ragged Island and provides a
moment for the collaborative meeting of two collectives, Bahamian Expo
2020 and the Plastico Fantastico Collective.
NAGB is pleased to announce the 10-Year Survey of contemporary
artist Lavar Munroe. Exhibiting over 50 works created between 2008-2018,
the exhibition hones in on the evolution of Munroe's practice and it's
materiality - moving off the wall and into a richer dimensionality.
National Exhibition 9 (NE) is an invitation to all artists–irrespective
to how your practice is defined–to think about what risk-taking,
truth-telling and innovation can do in a space that is still becoming.
The call for works (see link below) sets the requirements, with a
deadline of Sunday, August 19th, 2018 at 11:59pm. Late entries will not be acknowledged. If you have questions please contact, Chief Curator, Holly Bynoe at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 328-5800.
summer intern, Ethan Knowles, continues his fictional writing as an
attempt to draw out the memories of Ragged Island's destruction after
Hurricane Irma. Through the eye of a young child, he encourages a way
for us to begin to deal with the trauma of loss, devastation and
reclamation of cultural identity. Knowles is writing a 4-part series to
coincide with the opening of "Double Dutch: Hot Water" on Thursday,
August 23rd, 2018.
