 International Women's Day
International Women's Day

Friday 8th March 2013  5:00 PM

This Friday Join us
at the Garden of the Groves
for International Women's Day

"Join me on the Bridge" is an annual celebration held on International Women's Day, March 8th. In its fourth year in Grand Bahama, "Join me on the Bridge" is part of one of the biggest women's rights campaigns in the world. What started as a gathering of Rwandan and Congolese women on a bridge connecting their two countries, showing that women could build bridges of peace and hope for the future, has sparked what is today a massive global movement.

The concept is simple: March 8th, women, men and children will be standing in solidarity with others from all over the world who are celebrating the achievements of generations of women before us while shining a spotlight on the issues still facing women in The Bahamas and around the world.

Retro-Retrospective Peace and Nature Opening Night Reception

Friday 8th March 2013  5:30 PM

You are cordially invited to the viewing of

Peace and Nature

An Exhibition by
Nicola Hepburn

Show Dates:
March 8th - April 6th, 2013

Opening Night Reception:
Friday March 8th, 2013
Time: 5:30pm - 9:00pm


Artist's Statement

"Retro-Retrospective: Peace and Nature," is a showing of paintings from the past, some of which have already been shown, joining with those of the present, which have not been shown before. That is the meaning of "Retro-Retrospective" where this exhibition is concerned. "Peace and Nature" is a reflection of "Entropy", a metaphor of man's relationship with the universe. Overall, the concept of this exhibition is to show my continued affinity for "World Peace" and its connection with "Nature."


Nicola Hepburn has a B.A. from Boston College in English Literature, and a M.Sc. from Boston University in Marketing Communication.

She has worked for The National Art Gallery of the Bahamas' Gift Shop, selling admission tickets to the museum and retail sales of Bahamian craft objects. She also worked during the inaugural year of The Bahamas International Film Festival as an Advertising, Sales,and Marketing Assistant. For this event she organized an extensive database, put together press kits, and served as a messenger.

Nicola has worked as a writer, and has written for What's On, The Tribune, The Nassau Guardian, The Bahamas Handbook, The Financial Digest, Destinations Bahamas, and The Punch. She has also assisted publishers and writers of The Illustrated London News, The Spectator, Vogue, and Country Living, in London, England.

Most recently, Nicola has focused on being an artist, and has had shows at Jitter's Cafe, Compass Point, Cafe Europa, and The Ladder Gallery at NPCC. Her style is primarily as an abstract expressionist, with oil and acrylic paints as her mediums of choice. Her canvases are filled with raw emotion and energy. For a period of time Nicola has been through dark depression, and is now moving into the light. Painting has been very painful at times, but also nourishing to the soul.

On this note, Nicola Hepburn invites you to view her current art exhibition, "Retro-Retrospective - Peace and Nature" at The Ladder Gallery of The New Providence Community Centre, Blake Road. The show dates are from March 8th to April 6th, 2013, with the opening reception on Friday, March 8th at 5:30pm-9:00pm. Please come and support another one of our country's talents. Thank you for your time and attention.

Tickle Me Pink

Friday 8th March 2013  6:30 PM

"Tickle Me Pink" An Art Exhibition by
Dede Brown and Dylan Rapillard
Friday, March 8, 2013
6.30pm to 9:30pm
Central Bank of The Bahamas

This year's exhibition entitled, 'Tickle Me Pink' is a compilation of art work in which the artists take a step back from their usually more profound and provocative paintings and refocus on the aesthetics of Bahamian subject matter. Experimenting with technique, mixed media, pattern and colour, the artists hope their work will be viewed in the lighthearted, fun manner in which it was created.

Working with aerosol, oils, pen and ink – Dylan Rapillard's work demonstrates layers upon layers of pattern and colour, creating intricate collage pieces of which sea shells and various other Bahamian flora and fauna are the focal point.

Tickle Me Pink: An Art Exhibition by Dede Brown and Dylan Rapillard

The public is invited to attend the opening reception of artists Dede Brown's and Dylan Rapillard's fourth joint art exhibition at The Central Bank of the Bahamas on Friday March 8th, 2013 to view a selection of their most recent works of art. The exhibition will open at 6:30pm; light refreshments and cocktails will be served.
