"Bodies of Eve"
New Work by Sue Katz
Friday, April 20, 2012
Central Bank of The Bahamas
The Central Bank of The Bahamas Art Gallery is proud to host the exhibition "Bodies of Eve: New Work by Sue Katz" which opens this Friday, April 20 at 6pm and runs until May 4, 2012.
As one of the essential foundation practices for artists, mastering the human figure allows for the artist to honestly engage with the human form. In the case of local collage and mixed media artist Sue Katz, it’s a chance to use this honest interaction to present the human figure through the lens of societal standards in breathtaking pieces.
“I’ve always loved figure drawing and I loved the theme I had set out for myself – women in different forms, love for women, the perception of women and femininity,” she said. “For me, the female figure is a lot more interesting to draw.”
“I don’t make figures how I exactly see them or how other people may see them – my figures are exaggerated,” she added. “It’s always been my specific style and I think it has to do with my illustration background.”
Indeed her collection of work on display at The Central Bank of The Bahamas, “Bodies of Eve”, presents anonymous women with distorted bodies in her specific signature style, causing viewers to confront the space between reality and expectation in conversations about the female figure and femininity at large.
“It’s important to me to take on this subject matter in my work because women struggle with body acceptance issues,” Katz explained. “Ask any woman and she will find problems with herself and I think that’s one of the reasons I don’t make figures as-is. I think that perception is a big problem worldwide, though not too much here – it’s one of the things I really love about being here, that attitude of 'here I am, love me as I am.' But often I see the images of women’s bodies are distorted, and I have a problem with that."
Katz takes this message to the extreme, presenting figures in which thighs, hips and breasts are distorted beyond proportional possibility. The facelessness of these figures conveys the idea of the “every woman”, addressing the very real and shared anxieties of female body shame.............

“As We Knew Him”
A Junkanoo Tribute to
One Family Warriors Boxing Day, December 2011
February 3 – April 28, 2012
In December 2011, the One Family Junkanoo Group and Community Organization produced a theme so touching, so artistic, so creative, that the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas felt the need to open its doors and suitably honour the men and women who made it happen. The theme was “As We Knew Him, A Tribute to Jackson Burnside III,” one of the master artists of The Bahamas, who passed away suddenly and unexpectedly in May of 2011.
A key figure of the Bahamian art scene, he was someone who was invested in so much of Bahamian cultural life, from The National Art Gallery itself to the One Family Warriors group, of which he was a co-founder. Like the Gallery, Jackson believed that creativity leads to positivity and to a full, well-rounded human being, who would be an asset to society....

Lyford Cay School hosts transformative talk for
Friday, April 27 at 7pm
Lyford Cay International School (LCIS) is pleased to host a public talk by Natalie Warne on April 27th at 7pm in the Rainforest Theater, Sheraton Cable Beach. All are invited to attend.
Natalie, a young but experienced speaker, will be sharing her inspirational message that you are never too young to start changing the world. When she was 17, Natalie joined Invisible Children after seeing a film about the child soldiers and Joseph Kony in Uganda. She led a team to raise awareness in major cities throughout the United States, particularly Chicago where she set her sights on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Natalie and her team staged peaceful demonstrations outside the Oprah Studios until Oprah gave them airtime and the Invisible Children film was made accessible to millions on a global scale. Natalie continued to work with Invisible Children for the next few years and is still closely connected to the organization. She will be talking about the recent Kony 2012 campaign but the main focus of her talk will be to encourage and inspire students to work hard for causes in which they believe.
Natalie’s visit is part of the Lyford Cay International School’s Speaker Series, designed to expose students to global events and ideas. LCIS has a special affinity for Uganda. For the past three summers, students from LCIS have been visiting and working with Tentmakers Academy, a school for children displaced by AIDs and war in Kampala, Uganda. The new interest in Uganda due to the Kony 2012 campaign has encouraged even more students to take an active interest in the region. Proceeds from the evening will be donated to Tentmakers Academy.
For more information or to reserve special seating for your school, please contact Gillian Watson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Seating is limited.
