The Growth Series
‘The Growth Series’ is a discussion of ceramic artist Alistair D. Stevenson’s personal and professional development over the past six years since coming to live and study at The College of The Bahamas and emerging as an artist in the Bahamian visual arts community.

The show also serves as a stepping stone for Alistair’s movement towards studies of the Ceramic Arts in the People’s Republic of China this coming Autumn. Using stoneware ceramic sculptures, ‘The Growth Series’ is a physical manifestation of Alistair’s ideas behind what it means to develop and embrace positive change over time.
The major conceptual theme brought to life in this body of work is, as the title suggests, growth. Along with this comes the discussion of the need for initiative and responsibility to encourage development, whether that is personal or professional for the viewer. Physical themes which express the conceptual ones would be seeds, roots, coral, sponge and stone-like structures.

New Work by Alistair D. Stevenson
The constant support of this community and many others has played a major role in my growth as an artist and professional; it brings me great happiness to share this growth with you.
With that said, I welcome you to join me on Thursday 15th August, 2013 at The D’Aguilar Art Foundation from 6pm to 9pm for my final exhibition before leaving The Bahamas for Ceramic studies in The People’s Republic of China.
This new body of work will focus of various aspects of Ceramic Design, discussing both functional and sculptural aesthetics of the topic.
Despite being a non-commercial gallery space, The D’Aguilar Art Foundation will kindly allow me to sell artwork at this event in an effort to raise funds to assist with my educational goals during studies in China.
Please feel free to bring along a friend or two who you think may like to share in this experience.
