    Every two years The National Art Gallery of the Bahamas holds a national juried exhibition. A call for works is sent out and artists sumit work which is then viewed by a jury which then selects pieces from those submitted to be a part of the exhibition. This year marked the 5th national exhibition referred to as NE5. NE5 had as it’s theme The Carbon Footprint: Bahamian Artists’ 21st Century Response to the Environment.

    2010 proved to be a very busy and productive one in my world of art. It started off with putting together a proposal for a public art piece for the newly renovated and expanded airport facilities in Nassau, something I had never done before. I put together a presentation called "A Day in Paradise".  Then there was the "Love My Bahamas” mural project “A Grand Bahamian Vision”, NE5 – the 5th National Juried Exhibition at The National Art Gallery (see November blog post) and then my one woman exhibition “Inner Sanctum” (see October blog post) which was, I am proud to say, a part of the very first Carifringe Festival to be held in the Bahamas.
