NAGB Director Amanda Coulson talks with three young Bahamian artists who are all currently studying abroad and will exhibit their work at the D’Aguilar Art Foundation in a group show entitled “Flourish” (opening Thursday, August 27th). From left to right Angelika Wallace-Whitfied, currently studying Philosophy of Art and Culture at the University of Kent; Coulson; Ivanna Gaitor, studying Advertising at SCAD (Savannah College of Art and design); and Alistair Stevenson, who is studying ceramics in China in Jingdezhen Province at the Jingdezhen Ceramics Institute. The three artists speak about their experiences studying abroad, how the experience is colouring their practises and what they hope to bring home when they complete their studies.

Guests on this week’s "Blank Canvas” include Candis Marshall (left) and Orchid Burnside (right). Both are involved with projects aiming to provide materials and experience to youth in the arts. Burnside is organising—for the thirst year in a row—the Art Supply Drive, in which three schools are selected to be the recipient of supplies provided by Doongalik and NAGB raised through this annual effort. Marshall has another approach: find creative materials around you! Her Mega Masters programme and recent summer workshop, which will hopefully becoming part of the art curriculum at public schools, concerns "upcycling,” i.e. the transformation of objects considered garbage (wooden pallets, old tires) into sellable or utilitarian products.
