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

A wonderful day yesterday – firstly, Paul Elliott Thuleau, his lovely wife Eunice and their enchanting daughter Oumi came to Anguilla for a visit. Oumi’s not even two, and she’s a charming delight. First stop was the gallery for a visit – Oumi’s second, and she demanded some quality time with “les poulet and les chat”. Duly granted. Off then to lunch at Jacala, which was superb as always. I had a crayfish salad, which was nestled on a bed of mango coucous. Uber-yum. Thuleau was kind enough to bring along this beautiful painting for the gallery, “Case Parpaings” (House of Cinderblocks), which looks exquisite hanging with his other works.
It was a picture perfect day today, and couldn’t resist sitting under an umbrella on Meads Bay, enjoying one of Jacala’s very good rum punches. The main event (lunch) beckoned, and I was delighted to hear Alain tell me that they had a new special – fettucine with fresh tuna and baby snow peas, tossed with a soy dressing. Superb would be an understatement!
These two new small canvasses of Jamaican master Stafford Schliefer make me want to jump up and join the parade. They’re both titled “Masquerade Dance”. These dances are an important part of Jamaican heritage – the Jonkonnu dancers were a regular ritual at Christmas, dating back to the days of slavery.
Now THIS is an installation I love! A fabulous Victor Hempel nature board, now hanging with an original ticket from Woodstock, in Colorado…………. Thanks for this photo Jim and Kate!!!!!!!!!!!
A superb Bresil painting is currently hanging in the gallery – the work of this late great Haitian master always delights the eye. This is a fine small (30 x 40″) painting from the the late l980′s.
Sisson Blanchard (1929-1981) was a great Haitian painter, whose innovative work combined elements of rural Haiti with a sort of rhythmic contemporary style of painting. I’m delighted to have this work of his “Roosters” in the gallery now. As always, to see more on his work, and other Haitian artists, click on the “artists” tab at the top of the page, then click on Haitian Paintings.
