Remy Jean Eugene

Posted by: frank in News 1 Comment »

I’ll often post one or two of an artists’ new work when it comes into the gallery, but I absolutely HAVE TO post all 6 of these amazing new Haitian metal sculptures by a young master (IMHO) Remy Jean Eugene.  I was blown away when one of his works came into the gallery a couple of years ago, and am staggered by the quality of this body of work.  I’ll yak no more, and let the pics do the talking………..remy birdremy fishremy goatremy lambremy snailremy turtle

Rum Baba @ Jacala

Posted by: frank in News 3 Comments »

I really enjoyed lunch today at Jacala, as always.  Chilled rose, a rum punch to start, and that fabulous lobster club sandwich that Alain makes SO well.  We all finished lunch off with this little masterpiece, a banana sorbet-filled Rum Baba, now on the dessert babamenu. It’s just so freaking good!  If last’s week’s posting got Ellen’s comment of “Ewww”, I bet this week gets an “Oooooooooooo”………….

Go for the Roast Beef special.  Stay for the wildlife…………..iggy2iggy1

These vodou flags are new into the gallery, and I think they’re superb.  I’ve exhibited the bead and sequin works by Joseph Sylva and Yves Telemak through the years, and am now very honoured to be exhibiting these flags by Port-au-Prince based Mireille Delice.  These three all represent “La Sirene” in Haitian mythology – wife to Agwe, and Queen of the Ocean and Patroness of Music.  The labour in them is astounding – they seem to shine in the gallery……sirene1sirene2sirene3

Haitian Paintings

Posted by: frank in News 1 Comment »

I found these two quite lovely Haitian paintings at auction recently.  Although the gallery exhibits primarily well-known painters from that genre, I was  delighted to bid on and win these two works by relatively unknown artists.  The Moise painting is a classic Haitian village scene – remarkably, I can virtually feel the heat from those piles of coals.  The Etienne, “River and Hills” has a unique charm, and reminds me of mid-twentieth century American landscape painting.moiseetienne

Delonix Regia

Flamboyant trees (Delonix Regia to be precise) are in full bloom around Anguilla these days.  They’re dazzling this year – here are some pics of 3 trees in The Valley, though I’ve been stunned by their beauty from east to west this year.flam1flam2flam3

Welch’s Village Fest

Posted by: frank in News 2 Comments »

This is the first time I attended the Welch’s Village Fest, and it surely will not be the last.  I loved the vibe of the afternoon, and got to try some taste treats, some for the first time.  There were a huge array of soups available, and I started with the “Yard Fowl Soup”, which was one of the most delicious broths that I’ve ever savoured.  Also had a great fried Johnnycake, and topped it off with a tall glass of Mauby, brewed from the mauby tree bark.  Great atmosphere, with lots of families having a great afternoon!!ct yard fowl soupct making johnnycakesct johnnycakesct mauby

The martinis were cold and dry, the food was superb, and the company and entertainment couldn’t be beat.  I absolutely adore the vibe of Veya Restaurant here on Anguilla.  My good friend Gail and her daughter Emma treated me, and we ate like royalty.  I started with my usual, Moroccan spiced shrimp cigars, but I ate them before I could photograph them.  Trust me.  They rock.  Our main courses were respectively, Grilled Jerk Spiced Tuna, Grilled Shrimp with Sweet Corn Hush Puppies and Risotto Primavera.   We were SO lucky, as Omari Banks entertained us throughout the evening.  Just one of those great nightsfabulous!v2v3v4v5……..

thuleau arbre a painGreat to see Thuleau in the gallery yesterday – I sent him and his buddy Harold to Blanchard’s Beach Shack for lunch, which was the perfect pre-golfthuleau case tuquoisethuleau ombre palmier repast, so I was told…..   These new giclee prints on canvas now hang in the gallery – astoundingly strong quality reproductions, but now on canvas, instead of the traditional paper prints.  Rather a good “hybrid” !!!
