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.
It’s been a spectacular summer on Anguilla this year. Gorgeous trade winds blowing, keep us mostly cool, especially at night. I was delighted by two very colourful sights this week. Thanks extended to Jo-Anne Mason, who brought me in a Dragon Fruit, grown locally. Beautiful bright pink innards, and delicious with blueberries! The other rather lurid colour I saw this week was on my potted “firecracker” heading down the steps of my house. This very sweet little gecko was minding his own business, and quite graciously allowed me to photograph him. Just saw him again now – I hope he’s a permanent fixture…..
It was a pleasure to welcome Emily Crowe and her DH (dear husband, in urban slang!!) to the gallery last month. I’ve been reading and enjoying her blog, www.asthecrowefliesandreads.blogspot.com for a while now, and she shares my enthusiasm for great art and great books, and of course, this great Island of Anguilla. The blog posting about her gallery visit was published today, http://www.asthecrowefliesandreads.blogspot.com/2014/08/mondays-magical-mystery-tour-part-one.html and I’m SO pleased she enjoy her visit to Savannah Gallery!! See you next time Emily…..
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 menu. 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…………..
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.
Augie and O’Malley are SO conciliatory these days……….
