Effective today, Green Turtle Cay’s Lowe Art Gallery is open for the spring/summer season, by appointment only. The gallery, which features a selection of oil paintings by Bahamian fine artist and Green Turtle Cay native Alton Lowe, and sculptures by James Mastin, is located just north of town, on the hill between Black Sound and Gillam Bay.
Reflecting Lowe’s love of his home country, his works depict Bahamian people, island scenes, tropical flowers and wildlife and are featured in homes, businesses and galleries — even a few palaces — around the world. They’re also featured on more than 100 Bahamian postage stamps, and on the cover of each issue of Abaco Life.

It’s Reader Photo Friday!

It’s a question with many answers. Abaco has many beautiful beaches, each with a unique personality. And it seems that every Abaconian or Abaco lover has a favourite — one beach that holds special meaning for them.
I’m working on a piece for the next issue of Abaco Life about Abaco beaches, and I’d love to hear about your favourite. What makes it special? What is it about that particular beach that speaks to you?
