Art Residency

Baha Mar

At the heart of The Current Gallery & Art Center’s programming is an unprecedented residency program for the Bahamas. Local and international artists have the opportunity to follow their artistic pursuits in our studio space, culminating in exhibitions, lectures and workshops designed to captivate and inform Baha Mar guests.

“Painting has always been a means of self-expression. I started out drawing and painting portraits, emulating my teacher Stan Burnside, in 1988-1991. But over time I started to experiment with different methods of painting, a natural evolution…..for me the psychology of making images has limitless possibilities. The art world can definitely mess with one’s head at times, but expression has its way of coming out the way it wants to. So with my portraits, to landscapes, to my current elusive abstractions, I am just painting.”

Sue Katz

Kendra Frorup

“Collecting is part of the making,” states sculptor Kendra Frorup about her artwork. Frorup was born and brought up in Nassau, Bahamas and uses her memories of this time in her art. After a childhood in the Bahamas, she welcomed the opportunity to study in the United States and began to create representational images that showed a commonality with her
culture.

Drew Weech

Drew Weech (b. Bahamas, 1984) is a multi-disciplinary artist who works both abstractly and figuratively. Weech explores color as a means to create an illusion of form, challenging viewers to visually deconstruct his textured compositions. His work is often ghostly, attempting to reveal imagery in a slow and deliberate manner.

Sue Katz

Sue Katz (b. 1962, Boston) is an assemblage and collage artist working and living in The Bahamas. Through dynamic layering of paper, paint and other found objects, Katz creates stimulating surfaces that capture the viewer, presenting new ways of interpreting and perceiving traditional landscape and portraiture. Often times, the imagery in her work reflect past experiences, highlighting a fleeting era of simplicity, humor and irony. Katz received a BFA in Illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design and has exhibited her work both internationally and locally, including galleries in Illinois, California and Arizona. Katz is currently an Artist Resident at The Current Gallery and Studio, working towards creating a large-scale installation for the Fairwind Exhibition.
