While in the past, networking had been considered a commodity, something nice but superfluous to have in order to become successful—it’s now turned into a must have in today’s competitive, fast-paced business environment.

About the Artist: “Peter Sheppard is a self-taught artist whose work continues to develop into his own signature of a type of stylised realism appearing typical of our environment, but is in fact drawn from the artist's soul. Sheppard chooses to paint in long overnight studio sessions. He explains: 'I believe this is the most productive time of day for me as it coincides with the creation and dawning of a new day - This is when I feel my most creative energy.' Peter recently retired from the Travel Industry in which he has worked since leaving school at 17 years of age. He also designs and produces costumes for children and adults for Carnival. Over the past several years he has taken his costumes abroad and participated in Fantasy Fest in Key West, Florida where he has won the top prizes ... Not surprisingly, it is the good Sheppard who guides his flock through thickets, over waterways & onto lush green tropical pastures, to find beauty in the depths of pastoral life. But, how does Sheppard transport us to these idyllic places, which we recognize as being within the Caribbean, yet if we dare to look, they cannot be located? The foliage is distinctively Caribbean: Coconut palms, ferns, silk cotton trees and every aspect of flora and fauna that our region has to offer may be found in Sheppard's art. Faithful to his subject matter, his paintings reflect a full colour palette ...” — Read more: Peter Sheppard Biography

Event Description: “Join us as we celebrate Black Artstory Month 2018 on Myrtle Avenue in February. We are proud to present the 6th Annual Black Artstory Month, 'SANKOFA: GO BACK AND GET IT,' February 1-28. The month-long event series and Artwalk named this year by artist Ramona Candy, speaks to the notion that sometimes the best way forward is by stopping to reflect in order to be informed, empowered and inspired by individuals, stories and lessons of the past. FREE events take place every Friday evening and include everything from visual art, to poetry readings, to storytelling and more. Featuring the work of 10 Brooklyn-based visual artists, Black Artstory takes place at 6 businesses along Myrtle Avenue and at a variety of venues including Ingersoll Community Center, Leisure Life NYC, Five Spot Soul Food, and Brooklyn Navy Yard’s BLDG 92. SANKOFA recognizes the arts’ ability to act as a medium and conduit to expose, question and inspire when other forms of communication or action fall short.

About the Venue: “The Queen’s Park Gallery first played a significant role in the development of Visual Arts in Barbados, since it was traditionally a venue for the Visual Arts displays during the Annual Agricultural and Industrial Exhibition. This continued when it was one of the exhibition venues for CARIFESTA Visual Arts in 1981 and later became a full time gallery. Queen’s Park is unique in that it provides the services of a curator, gallery attendants, a guard, the organization and publicity of the exhibition with the Gallery taking a commission on sales. This facility has allowed many artists, who would not otherwise have been able to mount exhibitions and sell their work, to do so. The Gallery plays a major role in the development of the Visual Arts in several ways. One of these ways is in having a Curator, who consistently meets with artists to view and discuss their work, offering technical and aesthetic advice. This contributes in a strong measure to the sustainability of a local Art Market ...” — Read more: Queen's Park Gallery

Event Description: “Using the work of 'Medium' artists Jackson Burnside, Nettie Symonette, Jace Mckinney and Erica James as inspiration, participants will be led through the creation of collages that utilize traditional and non-traditional materials to express what inspires them and moves their spirit. Beginning with a brief tour of the exhibition, followed by a discussion and demonstration, participants will leave the NAGB with a completed collage that has their very own personal touch! Collage, from the French verb coller, meaning 'to glue,' is the artistic process of gluing and assembling various materials to a flat surface. Collage can refer to both the actual procedure of cutting and pasting as well as to the final artistic product. Using a mixture of paper, paint, sand and any other materials that may be of interest, workshop participants will experiment with assembling various media on a flat surface to create a realistic, not so realistic or completely abstract art work. This a great activity to share with families or friends. Come to the NAGB and explore with us! ...” — Read more: NAGB's Medium Collage Workshop-Facebook and The NAGB-Facebook
Exhibition Description: “From December 14th, 2017 through March 11th, 2018, The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas will present a survey of contemporary works that define and interrogate the critical edge of the birth and development of The Bahamas as a monolithic conservative Christian country. Through the development of opposing dialogues, the stronghold of rites of passage, the tenuous nature of buried histories and the fragility of personal stories, 'Medium: Practices and Routes of Spirituality and Mysticism' will unearth encounters with a “thing” that lies amorphous, often beyond the power of words ...” — Read more: NAGB's Medium: Practices and Routes-Event Page and The NAGB-Facebook
