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.
Short days here, like everywhere else, and although I’m out with the dogs at the usual time, about 6:30, the sun’s just rising at that time. Glad I took my camera with my coffee mug this morning – I was rewarded with a particularly beautiful sunrise……….
These two paintings, new into the gallery, are by a younger generation of Haitian artists, and I’m delighted to see the quality of the work from this new generation still shines. The “Tree of Life” is by Serge Pierre, son the late great artist Fernand Pierre. The anthropomorphic “Cat Life” is by Franz Mattieu. I love them both!
Collect the art you love. Don’t worry about what matches what – it’s your collection!!! Thanks TBM……..
SO nice to see Anguilla’s beloved Malliouhana hotel re-opened. We all missed the Grande Dame whilst closed, and am delighted to see it all looking so spectacular. I enjoyed dinner with friends on the weekend, and took my pics today, while we all enjoyed a fab lunch poolside.
For lunch, we all started with this amazing focaccia bread, beautifully seasoned, and served with rosemary olive oil. Hank had the house-made Italian fennel sausage pizza, and he generously offered me a slice. It was graciously accepted, and was absolutely superb. Crispy crust, and amazing flavours. Gail and I, on the other hand, enjoyed the Grilled mahi-mahi skewers, served with a mint yogurt, and served on a five grain salad. HELLO! ‘Twas a great afternoon…………….
Some paintings just leave me breathless for a minute, and this new Francis Eck work, translating to “Serenity at Night” is one of them. His style is working rich pure oil pigment with a palette knife, and this painting is an amazing sensual delight. I love the way the bands of colours at the horizon contrast so strongly with the black sky and white sea. What a gem……
CuisinArt Golf Resort and Spa has been very kind to Savannah Gallery over the last few years, and I’ve installed varying exhibitions of Haitian metal sculpture in their Santorini Restaurant, just off the lobby. I mixed it up a little this year, and decided to see how the lush oil paintings of Francis Eck would look, and am absolutely delighted. The installation brings the outside in, and Eck’s evocative work seems to be custom made for the space……
