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.
I’m fielding lots of very welcome compliments lately about the strong state of the gallery, and for that, I have to thank my artists. Proof of that last week, Kim Workman’s very large gyotaku piece,”The Deep” looks amazing beside Victor Hempel’s “Welcoming the Morning Sun”. It’s quite different than her smaller works here at the gallery, as it is done on rag paper, then manipulated with these beautiful crinkles before being mounted on canvas and sealed. Francis Eck’s new work “Quand Passant les Voiles” (When the Sails Pass By) is an arresting painting in its’ own right. Thank you!
I don’t think there’s a more perfect Sunday afternoon than good friends and great food at Jacala. Today was no exception. I started with this gorgeous cold beet soup, swirled with balsamic combined with the perfect center of crumbled feta and walnuts. A taste treat, though I’ve had it before, and loved it every time. The lunch special was new though – blackened Mahi Mahi served on a bed of vegetable and herb coulis, with a side of exquisite stuffed local tomatoes. The place was hopping! A cocktail or three MAY have seen its’ way to our table…..
I’ve been struck all week by the beauty of this new work by the marquetry master, Jean-Pierre Straub. It’s of a home in the Colombier village of St. Martin, and although small, 8 1/2 x 7 1/2″, it conveys to me, at least, his masterful talents. Such a simply superb gem!
I’ve been exhibiting the work of Waking Jean-Baptiste for many years now. He’s a very talented artist, Haitian-born, now living and working in France. I was very pleased to receive this week some very beautiful work by his equally talented brother, Nyperking Jean-Baptiste, still in Haiti. These paintings of the cabotage, or market boats of Haiti are very fine indeed. Haitian subject matter, painted in a very impressionistic style. Also received, were two very different styled works by Waking, who is taking the nom-de-plume of “Texy Fram”, I presume exclusively for these more contemporary works. They all hang together in this installation, looking very good indeed!
It’s been a while since the gallery has received a new painting by St. Martin-based artist Paul Elliott Thuleau. This work, “BBJ2”, is the second version of his painting of the iconic restaurant BooBooJam. It’s a very fine painting, and as always, the shadows and the clarity of the light in the work which creates the intrigue and beauty.
Augie and O’Malley were keeping a keen eye on this one out back of the gallery, allowing him his drink, then encouraging him to move along………….
