National Art Gallery of The Bahamas gears up for Seventh National Exhibition - Dec 4, 2014 - 6:18:37 PM

There’s a whole new bag of goodies opening this month at the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas (NAGB), and it promises to give visitors a lot more to mull over than Christmas budgets.

Opening on December 11, the Seventh National Exhibition (NE7) will discuss the significance of hues that go beyond seasonal reds and greens. This year, literary and visual artists will respond to the dynamics of social codes around race, class and the economics of privilege in The Bahamas in the show titled “Antillean: an Ecology”.

Bahamian Richard Coulson's memoir to be released October 8th - Oct 2, 2014 - 5:30:23 AM

Nassau, Bahamas - For most Bahamians, the name Richard Coulson conjures images of a man whose highly regarded and occasional columns in The Tribune are literary gems. Thought-provoking, free of political bias, Coulson’s comments are packed with practical solutions to what seem like overwhelming decisions – what to do about direct foreign investment vs. domestic, how to handle privatization, what happens when education doesn’t educate the masses.

But far beyond being the Nassau-born, world-travelled pundit whose observations generate cocktail party conversations and political round-table debates, Coulson is a man with a fascinating professional and social past that has taken him from the offices and living rooms of the top financiers of Europe to the deepest recesses of Iraq and Malaysia, with the beauty and the contrasts of Mexico a constant thread both in his work and his private life. In his just-released memoir, A Corkscrew Life, Coulson is the consummate storyteller, recalling details that no one of ordinary memory could remember – the abruptness of a sea-change from Ivy Leaguer to Army life digging bunkers and fighting bureaucratic battles in post-war Korea...
