A trip to see the best art in The Bahamas
Written by Blair Anderson   

This month we had the chance to take the plunge into the exciting things that are happening with art in The Bahamas. Bryan and I traveled to Nassau to view "Transforming Spaces", a multi-gallery tour in its 10th anniversary year of showing great Bahamian art. This year the artists followed the theme of water to give the seven galleries a cohesion that seemed to elevate the individual pieces into a collective whole.

Bryan and I were pleasantly surprised to find contemporary art alive and thriving here. No more paintings of sea shells, lion fish, and happy representational beach scenes. More provocative images and sculptures were the norm. A vibrant new emerging group as well as the artists that paved the way for them were represented.
