Art on the Town to Brighten Charlotte Amalie

Charlotte Amalie will feature a moveable art exhibit Friday evening as Downtown Revitalization hosts the island’s very first edition of Art on the Town, which will feature more than 15 local artists.

Stretching from Zora’s Art Gallery and Emporium on the east end of town to the courtyard of I.

Levin on Store Tvaer Gade on the west, the evening begins at 5 p.m. and ends at 8, and features exhibits at Zora’s Art Gallery, The Pearl Lady, Camille Pissarro Gallery, Ms. E’s Garden Teahouse and Things, Jonna White Fine Art Gallery, Gallery St. Thomas, Just Imagine and La Belle Caribe. Also participating are Okidanokh Goldcraft, Natural Livity, Virgin Islands Council on the Arts (VICA) and Bambini/Swane Art Space.

The variety of art available includes paintings in oil, watercolor and acrylics, batiks, jewelry, woodwork, sculptures and pottery.

The celebration extends to Emancipation Garden where several independent artists will display their works in the gazebo.

The waterfront apron will be open for additional parking.

All Saints Cathedral School students will be helping out as ambassadors along the route.

At 7 p.m. The Secret Garden Affair party begins, sponsored by William Robinson. A $10 admission includes hors d’oeuvres and disc jockey until 11 p.m.

DRI planning committee members Ruth Pager and Cathy O’Gara say the evening will be “an occasion to mix with other art lovers, patronize our local artists and pick up some original Christmas gifts.”
