Meet Dyah Neilson

Some artists live to paint. Dyah Neilson lives amidst her paintings. To get to a drawer for a t-shirt, she has to shuffle past art supplies before she juggles canvases leaning up against the dresser. To climb into bed, she crawls over works in progress.

DOONGALIK STUDIOS HIGHLIGHTS 10th ANNIVERSARY OF ITS FOUNDER’S DEATH

May 18, 2021

May 11, 2021 marked the 10th anniversary of the death of Doongalik’s Founder, Jackson Burnside III. In commemoration of this significant occasion, Doongalik Studios is proud to announce the opening of its rebranded gallery space that showcases the artwork and designs of Burnside for viewing, along with a selection of Bahamian books and dvds, exclusive ceramic art, and woodwork for sale.

Pam Burnside, owner of Doongalik stated: “Last year we highlighted Jackson’s vision statement: By the year 2020 more visitors will travel to The Bahamas because of its art, culture and heritage, rather than merely for its sun, sand and sea. 2020 was also the year when COVID-19 appeared causing the whole world to pause, stop, and reassess. So this year on the 10th anniversary of Jackson’s death we decided to rebrand the gallery to become a repository of his legacy by highlighting his artwork, as well as opening the Jackson Logan Burnside III Design Library and Research Centre that was established with in memoriam donations received in 2011.”
