TransformingSpaces2011 to take place April 2-3
The Transforming Spaces Committee is pleased to announce plans for its seventh Art Tour. The popular event will take place on Saturday and Sunday, April 2 and 3 and will be visiting 6 Art Spaces: D’Aguilar Art Foundation, Doongalik Studios Art Gallery, New Providence Art&Antiques, Popop Studios, PRO Gallery at COB, and The Hub, which will be showcasing new and exciting art work from more than 40 artists. Tickets will be on sale in March at the following locations:
National Art Gallery Tues-Sat Tel: 328-5800; Doongalik Studios Village Road Mon-Fri Tel: 394-1886; New Providence Art&Antiques Mon-Sat Tel:328-7916
With a more compact bus route and fewer spaces this year, patrons will have the opportunity during the four-hour tour to spend a longer time at each space to view the art as well as meeting and speaking with the artists. Purchases can be made during the tour and patrons are reminded that they will also be treated to a variety of food and drinks at each stop.
Transportation will once again be provided by the professional team from Bahamas Experience Tours, the event’s sponsor, who will drive patrons along with a knowledgeable tour guide in comfortable air-conditioned buses to each venue. All buses will leave daily from the NAGB promptly at 10 a.m.
The Committee would like to thank its faithful patrons for their support of the event as proceeds from last year’s tour were donated to assist with Haitian Relief, following the devastating earthquake, by providing the most urgent items in the form of medical supplies, food and hygiene survival kits and shelter supplies. A check presentation was made to New Providence Community Church who partnered with World Relief, a worldwide relief agency with a long term presence in Haiti and the Del Camino Connection, a Latin American and Caribbean network of organizations and churches who were extremely effective in providing assistance on the ground in record time. In Nassau a donation was made to the AIDS Foundation to finance an adolescent’s AIDS art workshop conducted by Antonius Roberts.
