A Live Art Auction Event

Friday 13th July 2012  6:30 PM

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.

A Moment To Treasure

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.
