Located at the Sandals Grande Resort & Spa in Antigua

The long-awaited Art Gallery in Sandals Grande Resort & Spa, Antigua, is now open. It showcases original art by Gilly (watercolour, pen & ink and acrylic) in styles ranging from realist & figurative to abstract & cartoons, on paper, wood & canvas. High-quality fine-art postcards, greetings cards and hilarious Caribbean Christmas cards are also featured, exclusive to Sandals, together with high-quality fine-art prints.


Sizes vary from 4x6" to 24x36", but everything can travel in your suitcase, as the larger canvases can be easily detached from their stretchers and rolled and the watercolours, black & white sketches and canvas on board have removable frames and all have re-sealable protective coverings.


The subjects of Gilly's work are equally wide-ranging, although most of her inspiration is derived from the Caribbean in general and Antigua in particular. She also works upon commission; this includes an exclusive life drawing option for guests of Sandals Antigua only. A selection of nude studies is on display in the Art Gallery which is located in St. Mark's Square (opposite the Resort Shop) at Sandals Grande Resort & Spa. Gilly will also paint any particular aspect of Sandals or Antigua that is special to you: a wonderful and unique memento of your stay.


Opening hours are 10-1 and 3-7 or 4-8 Monday-Saturday (closed Sunday). For further information, email Gilly at gillygobinet@me.com or call +1(268)464 6084.
