KimberlyThe December ArtsWalk 2002 art show in front of The Landing on Bay Street was hugely successful for all of the Eleutheran and Brilander artists [Dorothy Rahming, Karen Goodfellow, Barbara Melot, Iris Lewis and Charles Bullard, to name just a few] involved, who on average made $900 that day from sales of their work.

Local restaurants [Queen Conch, Briland Brushstrokes], students from the All-Age School [Austen Mullen and Gail Davis' wood shop class]and musicians [Cpl. Pinder's Boys Brigade, Dwight Stewart of Courage Band, vocalist Ithalia Johnson, my guitarist brother-in-law and drummer husband] were able to showcase their work and put together a great jam session, which we were careful to keep to a low acoustic buzz so as to not disturb hotel guests at The Landing.

Popular Tarpum Bay author George Major ['Romance, Kalik and Conch Salad'] hosted a booksigning that day as well, and in return for producing and promoting the show, the Briland Modem Fund raised $700 to support its various community computer center programs on Harbour Island and Eleuthera.

A great time was had by all, and many of the same great artists have committed to return for all four shows of Briland ArtsWalk 2003, scheduled to happen every few months or so. It's an interesting collection of Bahamian, Haitian, American and European creative minds, and we invite you to come on down to Bay Street to browse around.

See you down sea --
