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.

New Acquisition

We are in love with our newly acquired work by Bahamian artist, Sue Bennett Williams. This drawing is a part of a much larger series and installation by the artist and her son, the talented Jason Bennett, and was exhibited at POPOPstudios during Transforming Spaces in March of this year. The installation, which includes ceramics, drawings and collage, offers a glimpse into the wild spaces that Jason and Sue love to spend time in. This detailed drawing on its sumptuously mottled surface appears as though it belongs back in the woods in Washington state.
