Lula and me

Posted by: frank in News 1 Comment »

Yeah, Lula and me just hunkering down for a Dad’s Day hug.

The artist Kim Workman has created a particularly strong and lovely painting in this work “Friends”. Both the fish and octopus are created by a technique known as gyotaku, or a rubbing. I adore this charming and slightly goofy octopus. The hand-made paper has silver threads running through. Stunning!

Aside from endless surfing on the Atlantic shores of Panama, the isthmus also provided a lovely source of gorgeous hardwoods. These bowls are the proof!

SO beautiful

Hard to beat the view from Straw Hat today!

After a 3-year absence from Anguilla, Victor Hempel, the sailing sculptor has returned to our fair shores, bringing with him an exquisite collection of his “Nature Boards”. Victor spent a great deal of time surfing in Panama, and these sculptures are created with Nispero wood, a beautiful hardwood indigenous to Central America.

New Haitian Metal sculptures

EXQUISITE new metal sculptures by Haitian artist Jean Mikerson have arrived in the gallery. A unique twist to this unique art form – the birds and sea critters are sculptures unto themselves, welded on the backgrounds, rsised about an inch off the surface. I love them…

Every once in a while, I just need to sit back, and let the creations of the gallerys’ artists do all the talking.


Jean-Pierre Bernard

Feeling lucky to have come across and acquired a quite lovely collection of Jean-Pierre Bernard sculptures. The artist is Haitian, and these pieces date from circa mid-1980s, when the sculptors there were cutting their designs out, but not adding the texture we know so well today. They’re all small, under a foot in each dimension, and superb value for holiday giving.

English Rose

People in the gallery are frequently asking me where to get authentic Anguillian food. Well, a few places around the Island come to mind, none more so than English Rose, a wonderful spot tucked right in the center of The Valley. Today’s sumptuous dinner is stew pork, macaroni pie, mashed potatoes, and mixed veggies. Oh, a little extra sauce from the stew on the mashed please? Awesome value! One problem. I’m not the only one who knows when good food is on the table….

Coralita Vine

Posted by: frank in News 1 Comment »

Antigonon leptopus. according to our WikiFriends. The abundant rains, and very warm weather have spawned an outrageously gorgeous blooming of Coralita Vine. It completely disappeared during the drought, but now circles the gallery in glorious garlands of pink. Augie’s plopped herself in the middle of it – see if you can’t pick her out from the crowd…
