First “Conversations With Artists” Event
Several artists took part in the first “Conversations with artists” event (on Wednesday, July 26, 2012) that served as a focus group session toward the upcoming book project A Sense of Place: Public Art, Political Space and The Sacred based on Sacred Space at Clifton Pier and Bahamian Arts Practice more generally. Artists are invited to host conversations on topics that interest them on a regular basis during Coffee Hour simply by contacting the gallery.
Bahamian artists have been fortunate to meet a ready and willing community that supports artistry. Perhaps it is one that is smaller than desired in the eyes of some, nevertheless, the relative few involved form a dynamic, involved and supportive network that allows the visual arts of the Bahamas to lead the Anglophone Caribbean in artistic practice: the frequency of collaborative practice, mentorship, exhibitions and projects is unsurpassed in this regard.
