Over 300 years of Barbadian Furniture at Lancaster Great House

Our current exhibition, Barbados Furniture 1680 ? 2009, is an absolute ?must see? for everyone interested in the tradition of furniture making and furniture in the Caribbean.

The exhibition is available for viewing Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and admission to the Galleries is free. In view of the considerable costs of mounting this exhibition and the continuing running costs of the Galleries themselves, a voluntary donation of $10.00 per person is suggested.

Saturdays at Lancaster have become the ?art lime? days and artists are invited to enjoy the gardens and grounds and to bring their easels or cameras to feed their creativity and to be part of the whole Lancaster experience.

To remind you that Jerome Radigois? exhibition of Sculpture in the Garden also continues until May 30th and the coral stone works that he has created since being here has to be seen to be believed.

The Gallery Shop?s featured artist is ceramacist Melanie Bishop whose fascinating works inspired by marine life and the sea are displayed in the entrance gallery.

There will also be a Sculpture Workshop over the bank holiday weekend starting May 1st and there are still one or two places available.

The Gallery Shop and the Mezzanine Gallery continue to offer unusual and accessible objects, paintings, and works of art, so if you are looking for that unusual gift or memento of your stay in Barbados, be sure to visit.
