The series is entitled the "Lady in Red Visits" and portrays a woman, dressed in a red skirt, visiting well known sites in St.Thomas as she interacts with other people known in the community. Although the paintings are small in dimension, the detail is incredible, with an amazing use of light and color. As you enter the exhibit, you are offered a brochure and a magnifying glass.
The admission is free. Three series of prints are being raffled, items for sale include a Historical Trust calendars, tee shirts, note pads featuring six of the paintings and numbered series of prints of the paintings. Pricing starts at $10 so there is something for everyone.
