PROMOTING THE VISION: “By the Year 2020 more visitors will be attracted to The Bahamas by Bahamian Art,
Culture and Heritage than by merely sun, sand and sea.”

LIVING ON THE HALLELUJAH SIDE, the multi-media exhibition by Dwight Laaden Ferguson, opened to an enthusiastic
audience in October and has since been visited by many others who were treated to personal tours by the artist who has
been thrilled to welcome over 200 students to the gallery to explain his work and to share his enthusiasm for the music of the
world famous Bahamian folk guitarist, Joseph Spence! The artist was also invited to bring his artwork to a Q.C. class for dis-
cussion! Thank you to the teachers and students who visited! The exhibition will remain on display until November 25.

ceramic artist, Alistair D. Stevenson who is studying
towards a degree in ceramics there.
Stevenson presented a series of over 20 porcelain
sculptures examining “The Fragility of Life” as a con-
tinuing theme in his “Fragility” series which was on
display this summer at Doongalik Studios. He also
invited Japanese sculptor, Hidemi Tokutake, to be a
guest artist in the display.

many visitors to the ceramics fair, and was the focus
of television, newspaper and magazine journalists of
Jiangxi Province. The booth also had the honour of
being visited by the City of Jingdezhen’s Mayor,
Mrs. Yi Mei, to whom Stevenson presented one of
his works as an expression of gratitude for the op-
portunity to represent The Bahamas at the exposi-
tion.
