June Collie (b. 1986) is a Bahamian visual artist and gallery owner based in Nassau, Bahamas. Often working with the mediums of paint, film and photography, Collie’s work centers the joy of family and womanhood through an Afro-Caribbean lens. 

Collie first showcased her paintings in the Color of Harmony exhibition at The College of The Bahamas. She later ventured into photography and filmwork, where she produced her first solo exhibit of short films titled Situations, showcased at New Providence Art & Antiques. 

 

Upon graduating from The College of The Bahamas (now The University of The Bahamas), Collie returned to her first love - painting, and began experimenting with a new style that can be dubbed June Collie-ism - a montage of animated subjects, bold lines, colors, and decorative patterns. June Collie-ism embodies the ultimate expression of the Black Bahamian. Notably working with women subjects, Collie’s style is unique in exploring empowerment through joy, pleasure, and rest.

Over the years, she has been invited to participate in artist residencies with Popopstudios and The Current Art Gallery at Baha Mar - the latter of which produced a solo exhibit titled “Apartment Therapy”, international exhibitions such as The 55th International Art Exhibition - la Biennale di Venezia at the Querini Stampalia Foundation in Venice, Italy, and the Rochester Contemporary Art Center in New York, as well as her works have been collected in the Luciano Benetton Collection "Imago Ipunm" in Italy. 

Today, June Collie is the owner of Sixty2Sixty Art Gallery & Store. Located on the historic walks of Bay Street, Collie’s art hub commits to giving emerging Bahamian artists and artisans the platform to showcase their talent to the wider creative arts community.
