Streather to be featured at Festival Noel

Freeport, Grand Bahama - Works of well known Bahamian artist Alisa Streather will be featured at this year's Festival Noel December 7th at the Rand Nature Center.

Welcoming in the Christmas season, this year's Festival Noel’s theme is a “Nature Wonderland of Art” which is so very appropriate for this year’s featured artist who has been known to paint the wonders of the deep of our beautiful islands.

A recent release from the Bahamas National Trust announced this years artist as their featured artist. 

According to their release, Streather​ was born and raised in this beautiful paradise The Bahamas, and has always been fascinated with the ever-changing waters of the Bahamas which inspired her love for the arts which she uses to demonstrate the connections between the beautiful ocean and island life. 

She founded and currently chairs a youth group known as, Young Artists of Grand Bahama, for the past five years. She is also an art instructor/examiner with the Ministry of Education and her work can be seen in both local and international businesses and homes.

She has been a featured artist in the Burns House Wine, Arts & Jazz Festival at Pelican Bay since 2011. Other exhibits that she takes part in include the Freeport Garden Club, the Abaco Art Festival, the Lucayan International School’s Spring Fling, and she was the featured artist at the Grand Bahama Health Services Public Hospital Authority’s Christmas service.

As a member and former president of the Grand Bahama Artist’s Association, she exhibits twice a year with this group.

Her artwork was used in the Old Bahama Bay blue flag certification, and she illustrated recording artist Kirkland “KB” Bodie’s children’s book – “Bahamian Lyrical Tales”.

She is married to talented musician and educator Reynold Robinson and they have three beautiful and talented children - two boys and one girl who are all over studying at present.
