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 email@example.com 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 love getting installation shots of people’s homes with wonderful artwork from the gallery. These pics, which arrived this weekend with the email header of “A Little Savannah Gallery in Tower Lakes” , did not disapoint. Works by Fernand Pierre and Waking Jean-Baptiste look terrific in Tower Lakes, Illinois. Thanks Paul and Laura!!
It was great to see Jean-Pierre Straub yesterday – we caught up over a superb breakfast at Straw Hat, and the gallery was rewarded with a new collection of his amazing wood marquetry. These two, Camopi (A river and town in French Guiana) and Baie des Pecheurs (Fishermans’ Bay) struck as particularly beautiful. He’s such an amazing artist – this marquetry stops most gallery guests in their tracks……..
La Sirene is the enchanting mermaid of Haitian mythology – a great beauty living in the depths of the sea, she rules over the musical arts. I adore her….. Just hung this one new metal sculpture – a particularly lovely rendition of her by well-known Haitian metal artist Jean Sylvestre.
I received an email from Michele Lavalette today – she’s back in Brittany, and her neighbour’s cat Floyd came to visit and chill out today. Simultaneously, Augie, one of the gallery’s cats, had the same brilliant idea, and settled in for a deeeeeeep snooze this afternoon out back. Great minds think alike!
Lucy was in fine form this morning – running and playing on the shore with her bro and sis. Lucy came to us from AARF www.aarf.ai over ten years ago. We planned on fostering her till a permanent home could be found, but I think most of us know how those things turn out…………..
On her website biography, Elisabeth Piquet describes herself as a “modern nomad”. Born in Algeria, she’s lived in many places on the globe, and was living in St. Martin, when I first met her, and admired her paintings. I adore the very painterliness of her paintings. Exquisite in every way, they now reflect her life on the Britanny coast of France. We’ll be installing the exhibition on February 26th, and it will hang in the gallery until late March. As always, to see all the works in this exhibition, go the the “Artists” tab at the top of this page, and click on her name.
Alas, alas, alas…….. Time flies. I am VERY pleased and excited to be installing an exhibition of new paintings by Elisabeth Piquet next week. Elisabeth was living in St. Martin when the gallery first showed her works, and she now lives in the Brittany region of France. I shook my head in wonderment when I found this review from the St. Maarten newspaper, “The Daily Herald” today. 13 years…. Seems like yesterday, and it seems like a century ago.
………and a gentleman never asks”. My sweet Lola has been advising many of this adage this week, as she celebrates another birthday. Villa guests from Newport RI brought her a LOVELY gift when they arrived yesterday, and she was quite proud to wear it on her walk this morning, and whilst relaxing in the house………..
