Located conveniently on the main road in English Harbour, this is a treasure chest of beautiful artwork, hand crafted jewellery and natural handmade skin products. Specializing in ocean inspired pieces made by artists who live here in Antigua or travel frequently to the islands, this fine selection of multi-media art reflects the physical and spiritual beauty of the Caribbean.
The Rhythm of Blue Art Gallery is the show room for Antiguan born artist Nancy Nicholson who digs the clay for her distinctive one of a kind pottery here on the island. Nancy’s interest in pottery and art first began when she spent her early years scouring the hills of Antigua with her father, Desmond Nicholson, looking for archaeological finds that dated back to the indigenous Arawak Amerindians.
Following a pottery apprenticeship in Vermont, in 1984 Nancy loaded a schooner with bricks to build a kiln and set sail for home where she has been producing functional and decorative one off pieces. After 25 years of making pottery, she still digs her clay on island. Her pottery, with its signature blue glazes inspired by the Caribbean Sea, has found its way into homes all across the globe.
Alongside Nancy's signature blue pottery on display, you will find a fine selection of original paintings including a vibrant show of Naydene Gonella's rich textured oil canvases, Mixed media fine art by Shelagh Williams, copper sculptures by Aragorn, Lithograph's by Kelsey Miller, Magnificent Mango book and products by Greenheart, a selection of wonderful cards and prints, and a stunning collection of handmade silver and gold jewellery incorporating natural pearls, carved fossils and selected gem stones.
We look forward to welcoming you to this exciting and vibrant creative experience and if you are interested in meeting any of the artists in person we are happy to make that happen. Nancy's pottery studio is open by appointment if you are interested in seeing the hands on process.
Gallery open Monday ~ Saturday 10:00 am until 6:00 pm
