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

Artwork of the Week: 'Conjure Woman' by John Beadle

Easily one of the most recognizable and requested pieces from our collection, John Beadle's 'Conjure Woman' calls upon the spirits of our ancestors. It was a prized possession of Vincent D'Aguilar, and up until recently hung reverently in both his and Marina's home. Currently, though, it is on display in the National Art Gallery's permanent exhibition, "Revisiting an Eye for the Tropics". "'Conjure Woman' is fully representative of Afro-Caribbean Art," Vincent said about the painting during a walk-thorough of his work in the 2003 NAGB Exhibition, "One Man's Vision".  "She is possessed with all the ingredients to make spirits come and go."
