This yellow sculpture, Untitled (six pack), by US artist Bernard Klevikas is one of many artworks in the current 'Atlantic School' exhibition at Masterworks in the Botanical Gardens. The show combines the work of four Bermudian and four US artists, and is the first of a two-phase exhibition, the second of which will be held in New York .

The mixed media ‘Atlantic School Invitational’, currently underway at the Masterworks Museum in the Botanical Gardens, is an international exchange show combining four Bermudian artists — Meredith Andrews, James Cooper, Jon Legere and Kate Waters — with four New York City artists — Greg MacAvoy, Liz Sullivan, Noah Post and Bernard Klevickas. Their works embrace sculpture, painting, photography and collage.
The ‘Atlantic School Invitational’ exhibition is inspired by the long-standing dialogue between Bermudian and American artists, and the object is to introduce the current generation of American artists into the Bermudian community in the spirit of past American artists who found peace and inspiration here, Winslow Homer and Georgia O’Keeffe among them, as well as exposing Bermudian artists to the New York City art mega-culture.
