Three BSOA Exhibits To Open On July 7th

July 1, 2017

The Bermuda Society of Art is hosting an opening reception on Friday, July 7 from 5.00pm to 7.00pm, with the exhibitions to continue until Tuesday, July 25.

A spokesperson said, “Showing in our Onions Gallery is ‘Practice What You Teach,’ displaying works by teachers in various mediums. It seemed time for the teachers to get an opportunity to flex their creative skills.

“They are selfless in building the talents of young Bermudians and now we feel its time for them to show off what they can do. Join us in what will be a rare showcase of the works from Bermuda’s top art educators.

“In our Edinburgh gallery we will be displaying “This side of the Reef” by Artist Chris Ingham. This is Chris’s first exhibition at BSoA and we are really excited to introduce this body of works.

“A compilation of work that has been captured from inside the beautiful ring of reefs surrounding these relaxed islands of Bermuda. This show has been put together for your visual pleasure, hopefully leaving you with an appreciative smile.

Mr. Ingham said, “Growing up here in Bermuda I spent most of my childhood getting into trouble by wandering off and exploring. My enjoyment of that pass‐time has not diminished as I continually venture out to capture the best angle for an image, all the while thinking, can I do better? A personal mantra for every shot. 

“I crave getting out and capturing Bermuda to show others what it is like to be present the moment the camera goes ‘click.’

“This will be my final show on Bermuda landscapes. I am changing subject matter in the hope that it leads me on an amazing adventure along a new path and with a new perspective in my exploration of photography. Stay tuned.”

In Studios A & B we will be exhibiting ‘The Bluebird Box Exhibition’ an important project to bring awareness to the Bluebird population in Bermuda. BSoA approached the Audubon Society, requesting boxes to offer to member artists an opportunity to create using any medium of their choice.

“The bluebird boxes were constructed by middle school students in the P.U.L.S.E. Program at Whitney Institute which launched a student‐run business “Sky Blue 4B’s” [BlueBird Box Builders] as part of the in‐school BizCamp under the direction of the Youth Entrepreneurship Initiative of Bermuda.

“The Bermuda Audubon Society reached out the group after seeing their boxes at the Annual Exhibition and requested the boxes be made for the BSOA show.”
