2&3 Strand Street
The island’s newest retail art purveyor specializes in contemporary originals from artists working locally, on the mainland, and around the globe. Presented in a serene, modernist setting in Christiansted, inspired by downtown Manhattan’s vibrant gallery scene, bimonthly exhibits run the gamut of styles and media: from figurative oil-on-canvas to high-art photography to sculpture, drawings, and Japanese anime stills. Step past Tiffany-blue shutters, into the frosty tranquility of the air-conditioned space, and contemplate the meaning of life, death, hopes, dreams…and beyond from the comfort (more or less) of two austerely minimalist benches. Endless candy bowl, frequent rosé. June and July, Peachcan Gallery presents “Girl. Mountain. Sea.” by Tonya Gregg. Gallery hours, Tuesday – Saturday, 1 – 6 pm.
