There is so much about Barbados that we love and are inspired by. For some it is the people of Bridgetown with its hustle and bustle where the old mixes with the new. There are intimate views of typical Barbadian garden of crotons, palms and flowers. The power of the Atlantic Ocean with its dramatic vistas and rocky coastline seduces many. Essentially almost everyone has a favourite location that they return to again and again as food for the spirit. Come on Saturday to participate in a discussion with the Artists in celebration of their very personal visions of Barbados.

The Queen’s Park Gallery is temporarily located at the former site of the Barbados Craft Council in Pelican Craft Centre. It is next door to Roslyn of Barbados and very closer to Sylvester’s Restaurant. The Gallery is open from Monday to Friday 9am – 4.30pm and on Saturday 9am -2pm. QPG’s tel.# is 427-2345. Don’t miss it!
