Get ready to immerse yourself in Bermuda’s vibrant art scene this October during the Bermuda Tourism Authority’s inaugural Art Month. This month-long event showcases Bermuda’s rich artistic community through a diverse range of events and activities designed for everyone to enjoy.

As part of Art Month, the National Museum of Bermuda (NMB) is hosting six Artist Talks at Commissioner’s House. This unique opportunity allows you to meet three talented local artists, Graham Foster, Jayde Gibbons, and Meredith Andrews whose captivating work is currently on display at NMB.

Contemporary art serves as a unique entry point to connect with Bermuda’s rich history and heritage, making it a powerful and engaging experience. We eagerly anticipate the upcoming sessions with Graham, Jayde, and Meredith where they’ll share their creative processes and provide valuable insights into their remarkable work. Join us for a journey through art, culture, and inspiration!

Graham Foster’s Artist Talks will take place on Sunday October 15 at 10:30am and Sunday, October 29 at 10:30am. Join Foster in his famous Hall of History mural that spans 1,000 feet of wall space in Commissioner’s House. Tracing the 500-year human history of Bermuda, this grand mural has captured the imagination of all ages, telling the island’s story with vibrant detail, irreverent humour and poignant observations. This is a rare opportunity to learn about Foster’s inspiration, technique, and the stories that breathe life into his art.

Jayde Gibbons’ Artist Talks will follow Foster’s on Sunday October 15 at 11:30am and Sunday, October 29 at 11:30am. Gibbons will share her creative process for NMB’s newest exhibit, FAMILY (FAM, I Love You): through a collection of intimate and candid photographs, Gibbons explores the enduring power of family bonds in the face of profound sorrow and bereavement. Her photographs chronicle poignant moments from five local funerals and celebrations of life. Join Gibbons to learn about her work and creative process.

Meredith Andrews will be giving her Artist Talks on Friday, October 20 at 10:30am and Friday, October 27 at 10:30am. In her exhibit Homestead, currently showing in Commissioner’s House at NMB, Andrews captures the fortitude of family life in Bermuda through a collection of large format portraits of multi-generational families at their homesteads. Join Andrews to learn about her creative process, connections with the families of Homestead and how her vibrant family photographic portraits link to NMB’s community project Bermuda Family Scrapbook project.

The Artist Talks are free with admission to NMB: $18 adults, $15 seniors, and free for all NMB members and children under 16. The Museum is open every day (except on December 25) from 9:30 AM to 5 PM, with the last admission at 4 PM.

Worried about getting lost in this artistic paradise? Fret not! NMB staff members will be there to greet you by the NMB Ticket Office and guide you up the hill to the Commissioner’s House Foyer, where you’ll meet the artists.
