As a film medium, documentaries can inspire as well as surprise and incite - but above all they inform their audiences about marginalized stories. It's a powerful form of film that in the right hands becomes a work of art able to transform the very spirit of its viewers.

Small Art Auction House presents: A Live Art Auction Event Friday, 13 July 2012 At 6:30pm The Bahamas Historical Society Shirley Street and Elizabeth Avenue Nassau's art event of the year, The Small Art Auction House is a one-night only live auction with over 70 participating artists. The Small Art Auction House is designed to be a fun take on the traditional auction house and will be comprised of a live-auction of “postcard” sized artworks donated by over 50 Bahamian and international artists. The “postcards” (approx. 5” x 7”) are in a collection of media including drawing, painting, photography, mixed media, textiles and sculpture. There is no theme. The only guideline provided to the artists was that the the postcard should reference their larger body of work. All postcards will start bidding at US$50.00. In addition to the live-auction, The Small Art Auction House will have a small silent auction of works by local artists as well as live music from The Bahamas Music Conservatory Ensemble and a raffle. To top it all off, they are partnering with Poinciana Paper Press to publish a limited-edition handmade book inspired by and made exclusively for this event. The collection of six-word stories (short and sweet) titled “Death, Debt & Divorce” by Bahamian and Caribbean writers will be on sale throughout the evening. All funds raised from the event go towards the tuition of Bahamian cultural worker Jon Murray for him to study Art History at Hunter College (CUNY) this Fall. Tickets will include admission, the ability to bid and complimentary wine and hors d'oeuvres and go on sale 4 weeks prior to the event.

It's the little things in life that people often find happiness in -- a walk on the beach, curled up on the couch sipping a hot cup of tea on a cool, rainy evening, a night out with friends or receiving a phone call from a loved one. For one 12-year-old pre-teen, the little thing that she finds pleasurable is being able to read to a blind lady in her community. What makes this even more special is that the youngster is herself blind.
Anna Albury, the 2011 Primary School Student of the Year title holder, loves to take time out of her afternoons to read to Naomi Roberts, an 86-year-old blind resident in her community of Man-O-War Cay, Abaco. Being able to do this for Roberts, brings a measure of happiness to the youngster who will head into seventh grade after her summer break.
He's the crooner who has dropped hits like "The No Disturb Sign", "She Loves Me Now", "Rockaway" and "Sweet Lies" and he's back in town this weekend headlining the 25th annual Above the Rim Productions concert dubbed "A Night of Love".
Beres Hammond brings his famous soulful voice and lover's rock reggae style to the stage at the Wyndham Crystal Palace Hotel, and while he won't leave you speechless, because the crowd will definitely be singing along, they will be in awe. Coupled with R&B dynamo Joe and modern reggae legends like Grammy-award winning artist Beenie Man and Peetah and Gramps Morgan of Morgan Heritage, the "Night of Love" lineup is almost too hot to handle.
The concert rocks out for one night on Saturday, November 19, but tonight, a pre-party celebration jump starts the event at Mario's Bowling and Family Entertainment Palace at 8 p.m. with a mix of music from past "Night of Love" performers over the years, at an event that has been themed "A Night of Love: The Reunion Pre-party".
Old favorites like T.O.K., Red Rat, Mr. Lexxus, Notch and Tanto Metro & Devonte will "fan the flames" in preparation for Saturday's main event.
Added to the line-up this year are inspirational artists Landlord and Najie Dunn who both will bring the special element that defines this highly anticipated concert.
This concert is going to be one for the record books according to Charlotte "CeCe" Mitchell, public relations manager for Above the Rim Productions. She hopes that while people have a good time listening to the artists they also take heed of the message of love they will be sharing.
"I really hope people come out to have fun but I also hope they listen to the artists and understand the love and message of peace they are sharing," said Mitchell. "We also made an effort to put on events that would mean something, especially as it relates to what is happening in society [and] this is a perfect time to share the love."
A few changes to the concert hall layout have eliminated the general admission section, which means everyone will have a great view of the stage.
Organizers have also added more elements to the evening. Everyone has access to the lounge where there are sofas available and multiple bars. VIP and platinum ticket holders have more access to most things, and the double platinum ticket holders have even more privileges, including their own bar and raised seating near the stage. Plasma televisions showing the concert will be set up in the lounge, bar areas and even the bathrooms because they don't want patrons to miss a moment of the performances.
Tickets for the pre-party at are $25. Tickets for the concert are $50 VIP, $100 platinum and $200 double platinum, and can be purchased at Airbrush Junkies, Obsession Designs, the Reef Restaurant and Alpha Sounds.

Over the past few months, and especially in the last few weeks, activities in the local housing market have been making the headlines. The issue has also been a topic for debate around boardrooms, at local watering holes and also around dining room tables in many households throughout The Bahamas.
