National Art Gallery of The Bahamas - NAGB Newsletter - December 18th, 2019

This edition of the NAGB Newsletter features exciting new additions. The "Refuge" exhibition opens TOMORROW! It is the culmination of the post-Dorian open call for new creative works which delivers a fresh, yet profound experience for the viewer. This milestone is the result of the hard work of 42 creatives who contributed to a collection of 71 visual artworks and writings. Additionally, the museum is ready to launch ARTribe, a fabulous after-school art club for teens, in early 2020. Stay tuned for more meaningful initiatives, programmes, and events in the New Year! Merry Christmas from your NAGB family.

ARTribe - The Newest, Most Exciting After-School Art Club
The NAGB is pleased to announce the launch of our after-school art club for teens, which begins January 13th at 4:00 p.m. with a meet and greet! 
Budding creatives (grades 8-12) who are interested in exploring the arts outside of the classroom are welcome to join us in a safe, inclusive space that has a rich cultural history. We understand that not every student wants to make art in the traditional sense and with ARTribe, you can focus on art in the ways that you find most important. You will have access to loads of materials to create art but this is not just another art class. Write about art, learn about art conservation and discover exciting careers in the arts--this club is about you!
ARTribe will be held at the NAGB on Mondays from 4:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. For more information contact Blake Fox at or call 328-5800.
