Thanks for stopping by www.savannahgallery.com for a visit.

No, that’s not the title, but her recent “An Elegant Start – Drinks at Zemi” really whets the palette for great art and great cocktails! The artist just brought it in today, and it’s a painting of a custom-made drink made for her by Vincent, their gracious bartender. Zemi Beach Resort is a gorgeous addition to Shoal Bay East, about to celebrate their first anniversary on Anguilla. The gallery will be there with a pop-up gallery in their boutique on December 24! Drop by and say howdy……….
Zowie Victor! This mahogany masterpieve dazzles! As you know, Victor Hempel is a devoted environmentalist, and would never dream of cutting down a tree for his sculptures. This beauty, started life as a mahogany tree stump, floating in the sea near Rum Cay, in the Bahamas. Three years later, after much artistic deliberation and mountains of wood dust coating the artist and his boat, “Mahogany Bowl” now graces the gallery’s front desk.
Many thanks to the artist Kim Workman for sending 3 new gyotaku-based pieces into the gallery. I especially love “Tortuga Sunset”, with turtle shell rubbing from the John Pennekamp Coral Reef Park in Key Largo. Please read a short story recently publushed by Ms Workman in http://islandjanemagazine.com
She is very much aware of the plight and beauty of these magical sea creatures.
SUCH a wonderful evening last night with great friends at Jacala. We all started with a warm pumpkin soup, with a heavenly cloud of goat cheese slowly melting into this silky bowl of deliciousness. The turkey with stuffing was clasically prepared, and extra gravy was lovingly ladled onto our plates if desired. Alas, there was an amazing tarte au tartin served for dessert, but I pounced and devoured before I remembered the pic!
Glad I grabbed the camera as I headed out the door with the dogs this morning. Just thought I’d share a particularly beautiful sunrise!
I recently hung this quite wonderful painting by Trinidad-based artist, Shastri Maharaj. I bought it during the early days of the gallery, almost 20 years ago, and still love it. Maharaj’s works are influenced by his Hindu roots, with an emphasis on mythology. He lives and works in Chaguanas, Trinidad, and teaches visual art at the Valsayn Teachers College. This painting, 18 x 24″, is titled “Homage”. The painterly qualities of the background and the women’s dresses are SO beautiful.
