THE HEART OF THE RAINFOREST
Fig Tree Studio Art Gallery is situated in the heart of the rainforest in the tropical gardens of the artist Sallie Harker.
Shaded by giant silk cotton and royal palm trees, this gallery provides a fabulous opportunity to purchase original artwork directly from the artist.
The gallery features a selection of original oil and watercolour paintings by Sallie Harker, including the popular “Cruising the Caribbean” series painted in oil on Wallaba shingles.
These Seascapes depicting traditional Caribbean sailing boats, capture the romance of sailing in the tropics. More recent shingle paintings include a series of native birds, turtles and fish decorated with pacific pattern using gold leaf.
There is also a large selection of affordable archival prints by Sallie Harker and other artists from the region.
The craft section features the work of leading contemporary Caribbean craftsmen. A few examples are the innovative Jacob Scott from Bequia whose black coral jewelery and original beach rope baskets and mirrors are extremely popular. From St Vincent, banana leaf pictures of Caribbean scenes by Nzimbu Browne capturing the history and traditions of the islands.
Exquisitely carved model canoes, humorous nodding coconut turtles, and traditional baskets from the Carib Indians of Dominica.
Carved calabash by Ezekiel Jno Baptiste and delightful ceramic figures, by Antiguan potter Milton.
