I was delighted when Janet Cook Rutnik from St. John called last week, and told me she wanted to come and visit Anguilla. I’ve known Janet for many years now, and have mounted two exhibitions of her pastels about 10 years ago. She enjoyed herself at Windsong Villa, and treated me to a wonderful dinner at Luna Rosa. I’m riveted by all the new work she brought with her, but especially of this “Agnes” series. Agnes, in the artists words, deals with the strength and character of Caribbean women, young and old, who believe in the power of faith, and look to the future with steadfast hope. The works are “re-worked monotypes”, essentially making them unique works of art. They, along with recent linocuts and screenprints by the artist can be found in the “Artists” section of this site.
