By in News on November 16, 2012

Seven Bahamian artists are featured in the latest issue of the Caribbean contemporary art publication ARC Magazine.

An image from Blue Curry’s series “Like taking sand to the beach” graces the cover of the magazine’s 6th volume, accompanied by an essay written by Bahamian critic and educator Dr. Erica M. James.

James’ deconstruction of Curry’s work is described as “ARC’s most ambitious study to date”.

Also featured is the graduating work of College of the Bahamas students Steven Schmid, Christina Darville, Giovanna Swaby, Tyler Miller, Veronica Dorsett and Yutavia George in a portfolio coordinated by Bahamian educator and contemporary artist Heino Schmid.

“The 6th volume of ARC Magazine brings together a mélange of artists, scholars and writers in collaboration exploring and experimenting with formal and preconceived elements of beauty, alchemy, aesthetics, nationhood, independence and burdens of representations,” according to ARC editor-in-chief Holly Bynoe.

Featured artists and writers from Haiti, Guyana, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Cuba, The Bahamas, Trinidad and Tobago, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Chile, France, St. Kitts and Nevis, Aruba, Suriname, The Netherlands, the United States and Australia, interrogate and expand on a variety of media, including photography, sculpture, painting, illustration, new media, drawing, performance and mixed media.
