Ex Post Facto Metallicus

Exnihilo International Artist Residency is pleased to present Ex Post Facto Metallicus a unique collection of works from 4 metal artists from 4 different life stages, Robert Dane Shaw, Anya Pinchuk, Heather Schramm, and Kai Sia. “This collection of work is about reflection of one’s past, time capsuled in metal,” says Blair Anderson, the collection’s curator.

Along side the works of the four featured artists will be works by the faculty and students of SilverWorks Studio at Glen Echo Park.

The exhibition will be housed in the Popcorn Gallery, with an opening reception to be held Friday, July 3 from 6 to 8 p.m. Guests at the reception can meet the artists, enjoy a glass of champagne, and be inspired by the one-of-a-kind wearable art, sculpture and vessels.

Out Of Nothing Event

The Out Of Nothing Event was a hit with patrons while raising awareness for the Exnihilo Art Center project. On March 17th while some were celebrating St. Patricks Day, the Exnihilo team shown here with Consul General, Paulette Zonicle were presenting an art auction gala to raise funds for a scholarship fund for emerging Bahamian artists.

Out Of Nothing Preview Exhibition

Something new and exciting is happening in The Bahamas. The sun, sand and sea are stunning as ever, but in recent years a new wind of creativity has begun to reshape the landscape of this island country.

The explosion of tourism in the 1960s compelled artists to limit their output to what would quickly sell, causing traditional craft and fine art to spiral toward the predictable. After independence from England in 1973, a lively conversation exploring what it means to be Bahamian ensued. Realizing that artists play a significant role in nation building, Parliament established The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas in 1996. NAGB officially opened in a beautifully restored 1860s mansion in Nassau in 2003.

With a new home for contemporary Bahamian art, the “pretty picture” days are giving way to a new era. Fresh voices are exploring diverse subject matter, and in the process are becoming recognized around the world. This show features work of some of the most important of those voices, including several who are in the permanent collection of NAGB.

The works in this exhibit will be auctioned March 17. Proceeds will support the establishment of the Exnihilo Art Center in Nassau and create a scholarship fund for emerging Bahamian artists.
