Amuse Bouche At The Hub

By in News on May 19, 2012

Nassau, Bahamas – An amuse-bouche (amoos-boosh) is a single, bite-sized hors d’oeuvre, different from an appetizer, in that it is not ordered, but offered, according to the chef’s selection alone—a “delight of the mouth” to offer a glimpse into the culinary artist’s approach.

On Sunday, May 20th 2012, from 2 – 4pm, The Hub in Nassau is hosting a selection from the work of Grand Bahama artist, Susan Moir Mackay.  Mackay’s themes look beyond the surface of our lives, into deeper truths, often using everyday items and more stirring objects, like bones and blood. Her pieces resonate in both universal questions, and personal reflections, giving life to thoughts regarding society, women, healing, love and pain, and oftentimes the viewer’s habitual perspective is challenged. Mackay will be on hand at The Hub to chat about this sampling of her diverse work, sharing insights and commentary about her intention, inspiration, and process.

Susan Moir Mackay is a BA (Hons) graduate from Edinburgh College of Art, Scotland:  An impassioned advocate for the importance of art for both individuals and communities, she has made Grand Bahama her home, where she shares her creative enthusiasms with her two children and the community-based art organization she co-founded, Art Nucleus and writes an art column for The Bahamas Weekly.
