National Art Gallery of The Bahamas presents Art Exhibit at South Eleuthera Mission

Coming to Eleuthera March 5 – April 13, 2018

The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas (NAGB), in partnership with One Eleuthera Foundation (OEF), the South Eleuthera Mission (SEM), and the Eleuthera Arts & Cultural Center (EACC), is proud to premiere its second inter-island travelling exhibition, Trans: A Migration of Identity in Eleuthera!
