ARTIST IN THE SPOTLIGHT | Tessa Whitehead

In this episode, we chat with island-grown Tessa Whitehead, a painter and sculptor whose ability to communicate landscapes through shapes, vessels and symbols is remarkable. As art has never been defined by materials or techniques, neither has Tessa. Each piece has a bold intensity to it, each completely different from its forerunner but never lacking her unique and perfectionistic style.

Discover Cacique | HAYNES LIBRARY

The sun beats down overhead, and a welcome breeze rolls over the skinny island’s ridge, rustling the casuarinas and sweeping through the old bay windows of The Haynes Library, where musty novels and nautical maps now share the same space as computers and cafe lattes. Built in 1897, with glorious views of the azure harbour, this marvelously-maintained colonial relic is still open for business as a fully operational library and Internet cafe with many a tale to tell.

ARTIST IN THE SPOTLIGHT | Susan Katz

In this episode, Bostonian transplant Susan Katz paints us a picture of her journey navigating the waters of the art world. Susan works with oil, pastel, pen & ink and acrylic, but is most well known for her bold collages, in which she uses layering techniques, much like that of a painter to create depth and richness. Flying the Boston coop 21 years ago, Susan has been making strides in the Bahamian art community. Our conversation with Susan speaks to the evolving art climate in The Bahamas and how she has addressed socially-challenging themes such as racism, bigotry and sexism.

ARTIST IN THE SPOTLIGHT | Matthew Pinder

"Indie-folk" is not a genre that comes to mind when most people think "island" or "Bahamian" but Matthew's sound is part of a refreshing new wave sweeping across our pink-sand shores, redefining the very meaning of "Bahamian music" (check out the soulful sounds of last month's Kamilah). Matthew's style may stray far from the calypso-soca path carved before him but this has not discouraged him. In fact it’s done the opposite. Having recently recorded his first album, "Too Young to Understand”, we thought it would be an ideal time to check in!

Discover Cacique | The Hobby Horse Hall Race Track

Horse racing has a longstanding tradition in Great Britain, ever since 1711 when Queen Anne famously rode out from Windsor Castle to the field where Royal Ascot now takes place, and said, “This would be a fine place for a race." It was befitting, therefore, that the colonies should follow suit. Hobby Horse Hall Race Track, was built in 1792 near the Cable Beach site where Baha Mar resort is located today.

The Art of Tenting | 4 Tips For Choosing The Right Tent

Choosing the right tent is like choosing the right topping for your toast. It may seem simple, but then you are given options (and options within options!) - jam or marmalade (shredded or shredless?), marmite or vegemite (oh, I didn't realise there was a difference!), peanut butter (crunchy or smooth?) or cream cheese (have you seen the options in a New York Deli)? You get the picture. And we didn't even mention types of toast...
