September in Barbados, the perfect time for a dream luxury vacation in the Caribbean. Summer may be over but the island party never stops. Barbados has become a hub for cuisine, shopping, sports, music and much more. Whether it is a romantic getaway, girlfriends vacay, family reunion or just because, Barbados is the place to be.
This September, discover the best of Caribbean creativity by visiting a few local exhibitions. On the South Coast, Art Splash Gallery hosts MASKed, a show encompassing all mediums (canvas, textile, clay, wood, etc.), interpretations of the title (MAS, MASK MASKED) and portrayals of art forms in colour. The exhibition showcases the works of local artist Martina Pile Zahles and will be a great addition to your Barbados vacation itinerary.
Another stop on your Barbados art tour as part of your luxury vacation should be Gallery NuEdge at Limegrove Lifestyle Centre on the West Coast. Their exhibition, “Quaternary: Four Barbadian Female Artists” is an exhibition of contemporary works by local artists: Llanor Alleyne, Versia Harris, Katherine Kennedy and Sheena Rose.
While you’re here, another great art stop should be the Gallery of Caribbean Art in Speightstown where you will find some exciting pieces to purchase. Be sure to check out emerging local artist, Jenna Chatrani, whose stunning portraits of personalities including global superstar, Rihanna and cricket legend, Sir Gary Sobers, have won her high praises and acclaim.
Unique global pieces can also be found at the Tides Gallery located on the beautiful West coast of Barbados in the well renowned Tides Restaurant. Browse the collection before or after dinner by the water, a memorable experience to add to your Barbados vacation scrapbook.
