Nobody ever strolls by Jean-Pierre Straub’s work quickly. Most stop in their tracks… Straub is a marquetry master, inlaying wood veneers to create these superb works of art. Born in Strasbourg, he now lives and work in St. Martin. He came to visit the gallery yesterday, and very kindly brought in 5 new pieces, each first-rate. I re-installed the gallery today, and am featuring a showcase of his work in the main front room.
