1001 “chores”

Posted by: frank in News 1 Comment »

The gallery’s closed now through October, which allows me the time to get 1001 chores done. Today’s chore was a pleasure. I oiled this exquisite 2013 sculpture “Greeting the Morning Sun” by the extremely talented sailing sculptor, Victor Hempel. It was created from an almond tree found floating in the pond at Sandy Ground. The ultimate recycling….

Outrageous!

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.

Many thanks to Bordeaux-born, St. Martin-based artist Antoine Chapon for sending across 10 new works to the gallery. Included in this group, are 6 watercolours, which absolutely “sing” on the gallery walls. As always, to see details on the works, click on “Artists” at the top of this page, then click on his name for pics.
