A Haven for Art Lovers

St Barth seems to attract artists and art lovers. With at least 13 art galleries on the island, art appreciation rivals gastronomy. Below is a sampling of the many exhibitions:


  • From March 9 to March 15, Porta 34 in Gustavia displayed the work of the renowned marquetry expert Jean-Pierre Straub who creates beautiful scenes form exotic hardwoods and Douglas Hazelton the gifted copper sculptor who creates lifelike sculptures of fish, turtles and seabirds.

    Jean-Pierre Straub spent his apprenticeship in his family's workshop and has perfected his art over 30 years. Using over 50 different types of wood, his intricate scenes offer a broad spectrum of colors and contrasting grains.

  • Colin Douglas Hazelton, a Canadian who came to the Caribbean in 1967, is a sailor who creates stunning copper sculptures using copper mostly salvaged from old wrecks. His workshop and gallery is aboard his 75-year-old sailboat "Sinbad." He recently returned to the Caribbean from a 9-year circumnavigation with his family.

  • The contemporary art gallery at Le Carre d'Or in Gustavia is hosting the work of the renowned artist Raimundo Figueroa from March 8 through March 26. Figueroa is presenting "Meeting on the Red Circle," a collection of 27 recent works that he created between St Barth, New York and his native Puerto Rico. Figueroa's works are displayed in several museums, including the Museum of Modern Art in Mexico City and Museum of Modern Art in Sao Paolo. His work is also displayed in art collections of sevearl corporations, including Paine Webber, Bacardi Corporation, Equitable Corporation, Xerox Corporation, Prudential Securities, the Baltimore Opera House and Shearson American Express in Chicago.

  • Nikki Beach is displaying the abstract foil-on-plexiglass art of Denis Perrollaz from March 9 through March 18.

  • The gallery in Gustavia will be displaying the drawings of Andy Warhol March 28 - April 20.
