From the Collection
Chelsea Pottery "A Brief Bahamian History of Clay" - By Natalie Willis
A 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.

From the Archive - The NAGB Mural Programme
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!
