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.
A superb Bresil painting is currently hanging in the gallery – the work of this late great Haitian master always delights the eye. This is a fine small (30 x 40″) painting from the the late l980′s.
Sisson Blanchard (1929-1981) was a great Haitian painter, whose innovative work combined elements of rural Haiti with a sort of rhythmic contemporary style of painting. I’m delighted to have this work of his “Roosters” in the gallery now. As always, to see more on his work, and other Haitian artists, click on the “artists” tab at the top of the page, then click on Haitian Paintings.
What more can I say? Both superb renditions. As always, it’s the light and shadow that are the strength of his work.
“Listen, Mom, it’s a very rainy morning, and if we sit quietly here, Frank will NEVER know we’re inside and broke the “no cats in the gallery rule”………….”
If you pass by the gallery on any Saturday and hear moaning, please don’t call the Vice Squad……. It’s just me, enjoying my Saturday treat of a roti (or two) from Proctors Supermarket. Wikipedia has mountains of info for those who seek it, but basically a roti is a type of flatbreaad, turned into a sandwich, which came from India to the southern Caribbean. The roti from Proctors is curried chicken and potato, and is made by a lady from Guyana who brings them in on Saturdays. The wrap is as close to eating silk as I would imagine possible. Perfectly seasoned, this is a five buck treat not to be missed.
One of my favourite lunch spots had one of my favourite lunch specials today. The surf on Meads Bay was wild, yet the lunch at Jacala was sublime. Grilled crayfish and French saucisson nestled on a bed of local greens, arugula and local tomatoes, all sitting atop some rockin’ guacamole. Bravo, Chef Alain!
