Bahamian Culture

The only thing richer than nature in the Bahamas is the culture of the people. A people as warm as the sun that bathes the islands year-round, as hospitable as any the world over, and as engaging as the story of their history.

Artist-in-Residence program

Promoting the arts of Exuma

Turtlegrass Resort and Island Club has launched the first Artist-in-Residence program in Exuma, started in June 2023 with local Exumian painter, Emmanuel Clarke, who returned home after years in the US and Europe, deciding that there was no more magnificent place to paint and portray than his own back yard.
