The D’Aguilar Art Foundation, launched in 2008, is the culmination of Vincent D’Aguilar’s vision for Bahamian art. One of the most comprehensive privately held art collections in The Bahamas, the Foundation is an educational resource for artists, scholars, collectors, students and the general public. Operating out of a multi-functional exhibition, educational and archival space, we strive to involve members of the public in the ideas and discourse of Bahamian artists.  

Current Exhibition

THE NEIGHBOURHOODS by Maxwell Taylor

THE GALLERY IS CURRENTLY CLOSED TO INSTALL OUR UPCOMING EXHIBITION | OPENING MAY 6TH The D'Aguilar Art Foundation proudly presents a solo exhibition by Maxwell Taylor, in which richly orchestrated prints pay homage to family, nurturing matriarchs and the ceremonies of a happy home. This bold and technically complex body of work was created during two recent Artist residencies, at Robert Blackburn studios, New York (2015), awarded by The DAF, and Art in Residence at the University of Tampa, Florida (2016), and sees Taylor rework subject matter familiar to him through the breadth of printmaking techniques.

New Acquisition

We are delighted to acquire an Amos Ferguson to add to our collection.

Although it is not dated, we think Amos painted it in the early 70's because of the delicate lines and awkward landscape perspective common in his work of that era. The painting depicts a surrey horse and cart, hauling a guide and two tourists up a hill while a lady cycles down the other side.

Saskia lights up when she describes the painting, "I love this painting because of its boldness and confidence... the horse's legs are completely outstretched indicating its ascent up the hill, Amos's confidence describing such a complex scene is delightful. It makes me smile!"  More Info »
