The Inner Gallery

A work of art collected on a trip can be the ultimate conversation piece at your dinner affair. What can be more gratifying than saying, ‘Ah yes, it’s a Walcott. You know, the water colorist and Nobel laureate’ I picked up that piece when I was in Saint Lucia last year, a delightful landscape. He does so know how to capture the spirit of the place.’

Impressing the friends aside, buying local art is a great way to support the artistic endeavor in a growing community and bring back the ultimate remembrance of your time in Saint Lucia. The Inner Gallery has been revolutionising the art scene by providing a consistent, high-visibility platform for Saint Lucian and Caribbean-inspired art. Owner Rachael DuBoulay is knowledgeable, passionate and committed to seeing the art community grow. She hosts regular exhibitions, both group and individual, and is on hand to advise. Inner Gallery also has framing services, should you want the full Saint Lucia art experience.

The Inner Gallery is home to Dominican/St Lucian Arnold Toulon who embraces Caribbean color but eschews the convention of the paint brush. American transplant Jonathan Gladding is known for his portraits of people and scenes in his beloved Laborie. Gilly Gobinet developed a variety of styles as she experimented with pen and ink, watercolor, acrylic and oil, and her quirky sense of humor peeks through. British born, Virginia Henry came to the island with her Saint Lucian husband. Using strong color, she often chooses dance and music themes. Shay Cozier’s own story is inspiring’recovering from a stroke in her early thirties, she redefined her style and now works in acrylics on canvas with a palette knife; her work is characterised by a vitality, almost a brazenness. Donna Gomez focuses on landscapes, celebrating the everyday banana tree and hibiscus flower; when she depicts a flower, it’s as if she is painting the portrait of an individual’with all the quirks and glorious imperfections.

  • Tap into your inner artist: regularly scheduled art classes for all ages led by some of the island’s most renowned artists are held at the gallery, but if your time doesn coincide with a scheduled class, just call to schedule a private class at your convenience
