The Art and Design Unit of the Department of Education hosted the 14th Visual Arts Exhibition Awards Ceremony on Thursday, February 16, 2012 at the Mall at Marathon.
Junior and senior high school students from both government and private schools showcased their competencies in the areas of art and design under the theme "All Things Bahamian". Among the items on display were paintings, sketches, jewelry, handbags, decorative mirrors and souvenir items made from various indigenous items such as jumbey pods, thatch and coconut straw, sand and shells.
Present to welcome attendees to the ceremony was Tanya McCartney, managing director RBC Finco. RBC Royal Bank and RBC Finco have sponsored the Visual Arts Exhibition for the past six years. McCartney expressed her delight at viewing the inspiring, exceptional artwork produced by the students. She pointed out the benefits of art education, which include its ability to enhance other subjects, promote individuality, bolster self-confidence and foster better attitudes towards school. McCartney also thanked administrators, teachers and parents for supporting the students in their endeavours.
Cornelius Clyde, vice principal at the S.C. McPherson Junior High School and former business studies and art and design teacher was the guest speaker for the occasion. Clyde shared his passion for the area of art and design and encouraged the students to use their God-given talent to the fullest potential. He challenged the students to embrace the artistic spirit within and produce their own style and designs.
Clyde admonished the students to constantly practice and perfect their work in the various media because the market for Bahamian artwork is open now more than ever. He advised the students to become knowledgeable of ways to market their artwork locally and internationally as a means to become gainfully employed upon leaving school. Clyde congratulated the teachers and encouraged them to keep up the good work that they are doing with their students. He reminded them that artists must be developed in the classroom for country and world recognition.

The suspect in the murder of Francisco Hanna pleaded guilty to a weapons charge yesterday.
Dennis Mather, 20, of Lincoln Boulevard, was arrested for unlicensed possession of a shotgun and shells in 2009.
The case was transferred to the Gun Court, which opened in March this year.
Gun Court Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt sentenced Hanna to two years in prison.
Mather is accused of shooting and killing Hanna at Wilson Tract on July 10, 2011, just days after his release from prison on a causing harm charge.
Hanna had been accused of wounding Attila Leon during a shooting. But a magistrate discharged the case after Leon said he had no interest in pursuing the matter.
Mather was arraigned on the murder charge last month. Prosecutors intend to commit the case to the Supreme Court for trial on September 27 by a voluntary bill of indictment.

Coming across public art is often a bizarre experience. Encountering sculptures or text or paintings we'd expect to find in a sterile gallery setting rather than a high-traffic outside area often causes us to stop and ponder not only the art but the environment we may often pass daily without taking notice. It enhances our experiences and perceptions of culture.
Five centuries ago, the Amerindian inhabitants of the Bahamas lived in a completely different world from the one we know today.
European explorers described flocks of parrots "darkening the sky",
dense hardwood forests, and sea turtles so numerous they kept sailors
awake by constantly knocking against ship hulls.
iguanas crowded the shorelines; whales were a common sight offshore; and
lobster, conch and fish were abundant. Evidence for this are the large
mounds of discarded conch and other shells and fish bones that are a
ubiquitous feature of Lucayan archaeological sites.
The beauty of poached eggs is their versatility. Depending on what you pair them with, they can be breakfast, lunch or even dinner. So for this quick and easy weekday meal, I serve them with a bed of arugula, a scoop of ricotta cheese -- one of the most overlooked cheeses in the dairy case (it's good for more than just lasagna and stuffed shells!)...
