Art @ Top Hat Gallery, in collaboration with the St. Croix Foundation, has put together a special art exhibit showcasing late and great artists of St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. The opening reception will be held from 5:00-9:00pm on November 12, 2015. The gallery is located at Art @ Top Hat – Fine Art, Antiques & Collectibles, 52 Company Street, Christiansted, St. Croix. There will be an entrance fee, with part of the proceeds being donated to the St. Croix Foundation.
David Elliott said, “We want people to experience art and think about it. The art reflects our time; it is about our culture.”
The exhibit will showcase the rich art-history of St. Croix through the great artists that have made a tremendous contribution to Crucian lives through their art. Some of these artists are no longer alive, but their spirits live on through their work. It is important to bring attention to these “late” artists along with their living counterparts because only through the past can people make way for the future.
[. . .] There will be music, light hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. The entire gallery will be open (top and bottom) for this grand event so that all pieces will be displayed respectfully.
