Seymour-Munroe, Nadine

Nadine Seymour-Munroe (born 1975, Nassau, Bahamas) is a mixed-media artist who explores the use of repetition, color, pattern and texture in her abstract work. The wife of pastor Stephen Munroe, Nadine draws from spirituality, ritual and the unconscious to create unforgiving, experimental assemblages, collages and paintings.

Seymour-Munroe received her Associate’s in Arts degree from the College of the Bahamas and a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Painting / Printmaking from the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 1997. At RISD, she was awarded the Florence Leif Award for most outstanding graduate in painting.

The artist also obtained a Master’s in Art Education from RISD and teaching has proved to be an important part of her practice. She has served as an Art lecturer at The College of the Bahamas, directed the first Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) summer art program and taught at the FINCO Summer Art Workshop for youth.

In 1999, her work was selected to represent The Bahamas in Paris for Latin American and Caribbean Artist International Exhibition and in 2000, Seymour-Munroe represented The Bahamas in a group show held in Washington DC.

She is a recipient of awards from the Lyford Cay Scholars Association, Chris Blackwell, RISD Scholarship Award and was awarded the Central Bank of the Bahamas Grand Prize and Scholarship in 1994.

In 2014, Seymour-Munroe exhibited in exhibition titled Instinct at Central Bank of The Bahamas Gallery. Also in 2014, her work was selected for the National Exhibition, NE7 , at the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas.
