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

COMING SOON: NOMAD OF THE GOLDEN HOUR

The D’Aguilar Art Foundation is delighted to announce our upcoming exhibition of photographs by Greg Pesik. The exhibition will be open to the public on September 5th. A photographer and business entrepreneur, Pesik’s professional life has seen him travel the world and record his observations. The works depict landscapes and cityscapes bathed in the low light of mornings and evenings, also referred to as “the golden hour”. Pesik says of his work: “Photography and my work have been closely connected. It gives me a way of looking at problems from a different perspective. Just like motivating an organization towards a goal, I strive to illicit a feeling in a viewer, not just record an event.” Every September, we kick off the school-year with an exhibition intended for  a younger audience and class visits. Email us to book your class visit More Info »

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.
