Thanks for stopping by www.savannahgallery.com for a visit. The Gallery has enjoyed a web presence for over a decade now, and although often overlooked through the years, we promise to keep our new site fresh and interesting, with new works uploaded at the same time they are hung on the Gallery’s walls.
Please don’t hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (264) 497-2263 to request additional photos of specific artists’ works, detail photos of works on the site, or information relating to these artists. Drop a note to say hello – it’s always my pleasure to touch base.
The Anguilla Animal Rescue Foundation (AARF) is an amazing organization here on Anguilla. They run the shelter which gets hundreds of kittens and puppies adopted annually, and also get into the schools here to facilitate education on animal care. I pretty much love everything they get up to. The group has just moved it’s fabulous charity shop and thrift store to the Mega Savers mall, heading east. Heading east out of the Valley towards Proctor’s Supermarket (now selling fresh sushi from Cha Cha San in their deli case, but don’t get me started on how good THAT is), continue past Proctors for about 1 minute till you reach a big store called Mega Savers. Park and shop. So easy. It was the opening day of the new shop today, and I got the opportunity to take a pic of all the volunteers together. Best wishes for this wonderful venture!! aarf.ai
I meet the most interesting people at the gallery! Earlier in the summer, I had the pleasure of meeting a couple from New York, and the lady owns Lazyjack Press, an on-line purveyor of luxury men’s accessories. Bought some socks on line, and delighted when I received these very beautiful and comfortable Pima cotton socks from Peru! Check out www.lazyjackpress.com Lots of lovely things to consider, especially with the holidays around the corner…..
Please see my June 23rd posting for the introduction of Kim Workman’s gyotaku-based paintings. They continue to dazzle me, and I believe this group of new work is sensational. I love the gold rubbing of a sliced nautilus shell in the vertical blue “Tarpon”, and I think both the “Heron” and “Basket of Fruit” are created with wonderful layers of interesting materials. For pics of individual works with sizes and prices. click on the Artists at the top of this page, then click again on Kim Workman’s name.
As promised, an astounding group of recent sculptures. This artists’ imagination blows my mind.
Fantastic new metal sculptures from Haiti arrived in the gallery today, including an array of new work by the ever-talented Eugene Jacques. I’ll have a slide show up within a day or two, but thought I’d whet your appetite with these three….. First time ever I’ve received free-standing works from this artist!
Victor was kind enough to send another box of goodies this week from Grenada to Anguilla. Two new Nature Boards, including the rather amazing “Octopus”, along with four new “Red Fish”. The faces on these guys are wonderful and amazing. Loving the surfaces of them too.
DELIGHTED to receive a box of gems from the gallery’s wandering savant, Victor Hempel. These works are split into two groups, the “Nature Boards”, where Victor uses a dremel rotary tool to carve out his image. The raw material are pieces of found wood, worn by the sea and cast to the shore. This artist finds the inherent beauty of the wood by grinding down. The second group are rather wild and wonderful, his “Fiber Fish”. The textured surface of these pieces is chopped rope, found on the shore. I particularly like the collage of copper wire in them…..
A client was in the gallery yesterday, asking about Jo-Anne Mason landscapes. Alas, I had just sold that wonderful Rose Hill landscape, and nothing more to show. Contacted Jo-Anne, and she had nothing either. Today, I was delighted to see Jo-Anne and Chris in the gallery, toting along 2 lovely vintage canvasses of hers dating from 2001. A couple of gems, IMHO, featuring landscapes of Island Harbour and Sandy Hill.
