A perfect lunch to mark the end of season for Straw Hat – seafood spring rolls with a perfect caesar salad. Kudos also to Peter and Anne for sailing forth from the storm, and rebuilding better than ever.

Many thanks to my terrific friends and wonderful collectors for sending me these pics of their home, while enjoying the South Jersey Shore over Labour Day. Nice to see works by Kim Workman, Jo-Anne Mason, Victor Hempel, and Haitian metal artists adorning their walls. Have a Happy Labour Day!“577” class=”alignleft size-full wp-image-4074″ />

Swapped out my usual inland power walk this morning for one at Rendezvous Bay. It was one of those gorgeous Anguilla mornings. I loved the stroll, and shall let the pics do the proverbisl talking.

The gallery takes great pleasure in hanging this exhibition of new metal sculptures by Serge Jolimeau. Jolimeau worked with the great sculptor Serisier Louisjuste, himself a former apprentice to Georges Liautaud. I’m delighted that Quintessence Hotel, here on Anguilla, installed their acquisition adjacent to a vintage Murat Brierre work.

Today at Jacala

Posted by: frank in News 1 Comment »

Many lovely things made me happy today at Jacala, but this tomato soup shone. Rich, velvety and flavorful, it was a delicious distillation of local tomatoes. The dumpling of chevre and chive put it over the top.

Just received these three gorgeous lush still life paintings by the Haitian artist Pierre-Louis Riche. So beautiful! Details in the “Haitian Art” section, after clicking the artists tab at the top of the page.
