Barbara Dillas

Bermudian (b. 1950)

Acrylic on canvas


Collection of the artist

Bermudian artist and art educator Barbara Dillas has exhibited
in the US and in Bermuda at Masterworks Museum of Bermuda
Art and the Bermuda Arts Centre at Dockyard. Her work was
recently included in Bredrin at the Bermuda Society of Arts
(February 2023) which brought together work by over 40 Black
Bermudian artists.
In 2022 Dillas coordinated the Clyde Best mural project which
saw 20 local artists come together to celebrate the pioneering
Bermudian footballer in a large-scale mural along a 142ft by 9ft
wall on Clyde Best Lane in Somerset. She says: “We wanted to
design an internationally acclaimed community art wall that shows
dignity, pride and unity in the local community – we want to inspire
the youth in excellence and provide hope in the community.”
Barbara Dillas works from her studio in Somerset at the Western
tip of the island. Of her artistic practice she says: “My interest
is showcasing and sharing Bermudian culture and originality
through art.”
