Dear Reader,

Eric-Ellis

Eric Ellis, "Praise Him", Acrylic on Canvas, 52"t x 40"w, 1998 (D'Aguilar Art Foundation). This painting will be featured in the new NAGB exhibition opening tonight - "Medium: Practices and Routes of Spirituality and Mysticism".

Today’s newsletter marks our 36th issue of the year and it will be the last one until 2018, God willing. It has been a full year of art and culture with many ups and downs. We saw three legendary Bahamian musical giants pass away: Lou Adams, Cleophas Adderley Jr., and Ronnie Butler. What they created not only profoundly impacted future musicians and influenced our nation’s culture, their music also shaped the minds of generations on what it feels and sounds like to be Bahamian. Their loss is incalculable and deeply felt. But we are thankful that what remains of their life’s work will continue to enrich and inform us for ages to come.

2017 came and went so quickly, it feels. Our nation went through a pivotal and jarring, yet a thankfully peaceful general election. Devastating storms wounded parts of us while they tragically destroyed some of our neighbors. The nation and many Bahamians continued to experience hard financial trials and tests and crime and corruption still appear so prevalent. But in the midst of all these hard things, we saw life in the many exciting art exhibitions, concerts, theatre, cultural festivals, book launches, inventions and other displays of Bahamian art and culture. Each month showed forth the considerable creative output and talents of Bahamians of all ages and walks of life, work that defied the pressing and perplexing times around us.

Brent-Malone-Eve-with-Serpent

R. Brent Malone, "Eve with Serpent", Acrylic on canvas, 36 x 32, 1998 (The Dawn Davies Collection). This painting will be featured in the new NAGB exhibition opening tonight - "Medium: Practices and Routes of Spirituality and Mysticism".

Creating is not an easy thing; it is a vulnerable act that requires a level of boldness and perseverance. It takes courage and hard work to release what is intensely personal for the public’s consumption. Some of it may be stellar (and those are the life-changing moments we wait for), most of it – varying levels thereof, but all of it, the result of a creative spark and an act of bravery to act upon it. This publication would not exist without that combination and we are thankful for the work and the stories. We wish to commend each artist and creative practitioner for their contributions to the tapestry of Bahamian art & culture.

In closing, when this truth came to me that “art & culture were created to uplift and inspire the spirit of man”, it reverberated within me. I knew instantly it was true because that is how pure, unfeigned, and authentic art and culture affects me. Culture can so easily be perverted, but that’s not what we celebrate in this space. This space is painstakingly curated to represent achievements and what is great about us as a people. It is my hope that this publication brings enlightenment and inspiration to our readers and we purpose to continue that in the new year to come, God spare life.

To our many readers, have a wonderful and meaningful Christmas and amazing holidays that usher in love and peace into each heart and home and into the new year before us.

The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas invites you to the opening of the exhibition “Medium: Practices and Routes of Spirituality and Mysticism”, tonight, Thursday, December 14th starting at 6 p.m.

Guests are asked to gather on West Hill Street to participate in the opening of our magnificent new entrance gates created by Bahamian metalsmith Tyrone Ferguson. The assembly will proceed to the unfolding NAGB Amphitheater to hear the festive sounds of Rhythm ‘n’ Youth Rake ‘n’ Scrape Band and drinks sponsored by our neighbours Bahama Barrels by Graycliff and John Watlings, continuing into the evening with smooth holiday vibes provided by Adrian D’Aguilar and friends.

“Medium” is a survey of contemporary works that define and interrogate the critical edge of the birth and development of The Bahamas as a monolithic conservative Christian country. Through the development of opposing dialogues, the stronghold of rites of passage, the tenuous nature of buried histories and the fragility of personal stories, “Medium: Practices and Routes of Spirituality and Mysticism” will unearth encounters with a “thing” that lies amorphous, often beyond the power of words.

‘Shepherding Courage’:
Artists’ Talk & Gallery Walk

TOMORROW NIGHT: Friday, December 15th | At 6 p.m.
The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas, West Hill Street

Medium ArtistsTalk Sq

Tomorrow night, Friday, December 15th, starting at 6 p.m. The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas invites the general public to the first artists’ talk and gallery walk for their new exhibition “Medium: Practices and Routes of Spirituality and Mysticism,” which is on view through March 11th, 2018.

To be creative takes courage and to deal with faith in your practice requires a double dose of courage. Even though The Bahamas is largely a conservative Christian community, within the local creative community there are certain stigmas attached to work that deals with religion, spirituality and the varied ways that these are practiced, in addition to a more intuitive understanding of creative practice and its alignment with higher callings and powers.

We will be joined by Bahamian artists Dionne Benjamin-Smith, Jace McKinney, Samantha Moree and Allan P. Wallace. They will take us through their relationship to faith, and how they have been able to navigate society’s hardness while keeping the spirit of their practices alive and thriving.

Following the conversation, Katrina Cartwright, NAGB’s Education Officer will guide a walkthrough with the artists to speak about the works presented in “Medium: Practices and Routes of Spirituality and Mysticism”. The event is free and open to the public.

Unleashed Creativity Art Exhibition

Saturday, December 16th, 2017 | 3pm–7:30pm
Equity Trust House | Caves Village, Nassau

Sophie-McCarroll-Sea-grape-leaves

Painted Sea Grape leaves by Sophie McCarroll.

Inspired by the rich experience of their first joint art exhibition that took place last year at Equity Trust House, the artists and organizers of “Unleashed Creativity”, Sophie McCaroll and Kevin Cooper, decided to share the platform with other artists in the second iteration of this art show.

The vision of the show is to create a strong representation of eleven professional artists in The Bahamas who are all very diverse and competent in their chosen media and subject matter as well as to offer an opportunity to artists to have an audience for their creations and expressions.

Kevin-Cooper-Fisherman

Judith-Papillon

When this vision was shared with the Cassar family of Equity Trust House, it was met with ready acceptance and warmth whereby they, once again, offered their space to celebrate the visual arts in The Bahamas.

The range of media and subject matter spans canvases of seagrape leaves by Sophie McCaroll, to the alive, free and colorful paintings of Kevin Cooper to the gestural abstract paintings of Toby Lunn, to the gracefully organic ceramic sculptures of Imogene Walkine and on and on. The show indeed promises a variety of creative stimuli for all art lovers/supporters as well as those that are just beginning their journey into Bahamian art.

The exhibition takes place on Saturday, December 16th, 2017 at Caves Trust House, in The Caves Village from 3pm to 7:30 pm.

In her new book, “MOTIVE! — Deliverance from Selfish Ambition to Live the Empowered Life” (116 pp., $14.99), she shows readers how to recognize and dispel selfish ambition, and the hidden motives that only God can see.

Bahamian artist launches new motion graphic animated series

In a time when just mentioning the name “Jesus” or “Christ” puts many people on edge, a young Bahamian visual artist and illustrator, Jace McKinney, has boldly embarked on what he considers a life-long project that gives a whole new vision of Yeshua ben Yosef, the man who the world would come to know as Jesus Christ.

Acts of the Messiah-01

The project is entitled Acts of The Messiah and it is a motion graphic animated series, written and illustrated by McKinney, that takes into account Jesus Christ’s radical message which transcended cultural and ethnic boundaries. The series seeks to show how His life was a manifest expression of God’s love and labor in restoring His image in humanity.

Screen shot 2017-12-14 at 1.25.25 PM

Acts of The Messiah was recently launched on December 7th by Jace McKinney and his team at Andrews University in Michigan. The launch premiered the first pilot episode entitled “Legacy of the Magi.” This first episode takes the viewer on a journey to ancient Persia to hear the story of Christ’s birth from the Magi themselves. The Magi’s son recalls his father's epic journey to witness the extraordinary event.

The stories told in this series come from the various world cultures that existed in the early period after Christ’s death and resurrection. They highlight the experiences of various people who were impacted by Jesus’ acts and message. By looking through their eyes, this series aims to illustrate the universal nature and truth of Jesus.

Screen shot 2017-12-14 at 1.14.28 PM

When asked about his inspiration to develop this series, McKinney expressed, “I received the idea for this project nearly two years ago. I was impressed by God to do this, as the image of Christ is a significant, controversial and relevant issue in our world today. The image of Christ is more so a prevalent issue in western culture. Paul Harvey (The Color of Christ, 2012) states, “Jesus became such an important visual presence (in America) linked to racial categories that even those who wanted to avoid discussions of his race have found it impossible.””

The core narrative of this project is the story of Jesus. Drawing information from the four gospels of the New Testament and the book of Acts, these stories focus on Christ’s life, miracles, teachings, his divine nature and salvific message. After Christ’s death and resurrection, He gave his disciples the mandate to spread the gospel to the entire world. McKinney invites one and all on this journey in rediscovering the world's Redeemer.

Interview with artist Jace McKinney

McKinney shares insights
into his practice.

by Katrina Cartwright

One of 33 artists participating in the upcoming exhibition, “Medium: Practices and Routes of Spirituality and Mysticism,” which opens at The National Gallery of The Bahamas on Thursday, December 14th, 2017, Jace McKinney will be leading a special members only workshop at the Gallery on Monday, December 18th. “Methods in Ethereal Beauty” will take participants on a journey through McKinney’s artistic process, then guide them through the creation of a unique painting that explores individual ideas of beauty and spirituality. Designed just for NAGB members, this event will begin with a tour of the exhibition led by the artist, who will share insights on his work, then segue into a relaxing sip and paint.

A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, McKinney majored in sculpture with an emphasis on illustration. His Christian faith is integral to his practice and in 2013, McKinney began a new chapter in his career, enrolling in seminary at Andrews University, Michigan. Recently we were able to interview the artist who answered questions about his practice, interests and advent into the arts.

What inspired you to become an artist?
In hindsight, I think I always wanted to be an artist. As a child, I enjoyed comics and would create comic book stories. I thought it would be fantastic for me to create art for a living. After learning about Bahamian artists like Stan Burnside, Jackson Burnside and Eddie Minnis, then meeting John Cox during my first year of high school, I was confident that this dream could be realized.

A Glitch in Time: Who’s in for the Saving?

by Dr Ian Bethell-Bennett

Burnside Jackson 3 IMG 1486

Jackson Burnside. “Omnipotence”. Mixed Media on Paper. 75.5 x 48, 2008. This work will be on view in “Medium: Practices and Routes of Spirituality and Mysticism” on view at the NAGB from December 14th, 2017. (Dawn Davies Collection)

Colour, movement, connection, difference and texture are all words that join to make meaning. Though Jackson Burnside’s “Omnipotence” is huge without imposing itself, it approaches the familiar and reflects what we do not talk about. In reflection, as the theory goes, there should be distortion but here the reflection captures the being of spiritual materialism in Bahamian culture and psyche. There is hardly distortion, except to underscore the distorted view we have of ourselves and our endeavours.

Rasta, not accepted; flowers, ignored. One day at about 7:30 a.m., frustrated by traffic as usual, in a holding pattern, while driving across Boyd Road, there was a little boy in his school uniform, watering crocuses that lined the base of a cement wall that partially enclosed the house he must have inhabited. For many, they would have missed him, his unpretentious unannounced act of watering flowers would simply go unseen because we are not looking for that.

We are in the heart of what has been ghettoised. It is no longer a cool place to reside, no longer middle class for ‘black’ dwellings, no longer under the hard and heavy hand of colonial segregation and policies of international development. That young boy held so much of the resilience that we deny to so many aspects of African spirituality; including the tenacity of Blacks to survive the intentioned and pragmatic sanitising of their beings. Through the many different approaches that were used to deny the worth of Africa and any African derived artefacts and souls. Howard Johnson articulates this in his work on Bahamian history and identity. [...]

Nine Angels

“Nine Angels” by Antonius Roberts, reclaimed Madeira wood. 2008-9

Angelic Remembrance

Bahamian artist Antonius Roberts’ memorialises women of faith.

by Keisha Oliver

For Antonius Roberts, his creative practice meets an interesting balance between ritual and survival. He is highly regarded as a Bahamian master artist whose work is deeply rooted in themes of spirituality, humanity, and nature. He is also equally respected as a successful arts facilitator, entrepreneur, and educator who has crafted opportunities for many emerging and practising creatives.

Boasting almost forty years of service in cultural development Roberts’ art practice remains his humble solace, a personal ritual that he returns to, to create, preserve and meditate. Often marrying his love for the environment and conservation to channel his ancestral roots he revisits his maternal lineage in his wooden sculptures “Nine Angels” (2008-9).

Presently a part of The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas (NAGB) permanent collection “Nine Angels” will be featured in the upcoming exhibition “Medium: Practices and Routes of Spirituality and Mysticism,” opening tonight, Thursday, December 14th. Formerly hung overlooking the gallery’s stairwell the work’s presence seems less of a work of art and more of a religious symbol likened to the cross of Christianity. Out of reach, placed in a quiet corner, it evokes a peaceful sanctity. This ideal of transformative experiences and sacred spaces has been the direction of much of Roberts’ sculptural work over the past 12 years. [...]
