Chan Pratt - Reserrection
National Art Gallery of The Bahamas brings to life a collection of over
110 works from the master Bahamian artist, Chan Pratt. We celebrate
Pratt's life and creativity posthumously in "Resurrection."
Tessa Whitehead - "...there are always two deaths"
National Art Gallery of The Bahamas is proud to present a collection of
new paintings by interdisciplinary artist Tessa Whitehead. Her first
solo exhibition in The Bahamas titled "...there are always two deaths"
catalogues the artist's observations of the landscape, everyday life,
and the inner working of nature in conjunction with the sacred feminine.
Chelsea Pottery "A Brief Bahamian History of Clay" - By Natalie Willis
beautifully formed piece of handmade ceramic work, produced at the
Chelsea Pottery in Nassau in 1960, serves as a great point of departure
for talking about some of our Bahamian art histories. Clay work, like
drawing and painting, has a history almost as old as humanity itself.
Our legacy of pottery here begins with the indigenous peoples of The
Bahamas - the Arawaks, Lucayans, and Tainos. As Dr Erica M. James lays
out in her key text on Bahamian art history in “Bahamian Modernism”, our
background of creative visual culture is much richer and varied than we
tend to hear about.
We’re taking a trip down
memory lane with this video! In 2017 the NAGB took the mural programme
to the Out Islands for the first time as a part of our Inter-Island
Traveling Exhibition. This mural can be found at the airport in
Georgetown, Exuma. The NAGB Mural Programme is one of several NAGB
outreach initiatives that brings artists and communities together in the
creation of amazing art.
Our newest mural, created with the assistance of our Mixed Media Art
Summer Camp (MMASC) campers, will be unveiled at the MMASC Exhibition
Opening Reception and Awards Ceremony on August 1st, 2019!
