NAGB Tribute to Petrine Archer-Straw (1956-2012)

The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas is saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. Petrine Archer-Straw this week. As a highly respected presence in the art community, Dr. Archer-Straw will be greatly missed.

She served as a consulting curator in the formation of the National Art Gallery of the Bahamas and will be remembered for her invaluable contributions to its establishment. She will also be remembered as curator of two large-scale exhibitions at the Gallery: One Man’s Vision, The Vincent D’Aguilar Collection (for the official opening of the NAGB in 2003) in addition to “Past, Present and Personal”, The Dawn Davies Collection (30 September, 2004—31 March 2005). Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.
