Popop Artists In F Factor
The D’Aguilar Art Foundation is proud to host an exhibition of works called “The F Factor: Female Artists of The Bahamas.” This exhibition features work in a wide range of media from 22 women artists and showcases their impact on the visual Bahamian art community.
Participating artists are: Janine Antoni, Dionne Benjamin-Smith, Sue Bennett Williams, Joann Behagg, Lillian Blades, Chantal E.Y. Bethel, Maria Chisnall, Jessica Maycock-Colebrooke, Claudette Dean, Jan Elliott, Roshanne Minnis-Eyma, Nicole Minnis-Ferguson, Kendra Frorup, Susan Katz Lightbourn, Erica Moiah James, Sarah McClean, Susan Moir Mackay, Lady Zoe Maynard, Lynn Parotti, Tamara Russell, Nora Smith and Imogene Walkine. [two of whom – Sue Katz and Jan Elliott – hold studios at Popop]
Themes considered exclusive to women—maternity and femininity—are certainly addressed, in addition to environmentalism, Bahamian social woes, immigration and even the financial crisis, which all come to the surface from what is unmistakably a feminine perspective. The result is a show that is entirely self-possessive, confident in its power to both transcend and transform though the feminine voice, and permeated with the overarching theme of possibility and all of its constant reminders.
Gallery hours are Tuesdays thru Thursdays 10am to 4pm (by appointment). Located on Virginia Street, you may call for further inquiries at 322-2323.
