'The Art Show' at Alexander's Bella Blu Opens May 18

May 17, 2007 – "The Art Show" at Alexander's Bella Blu presents The Gallery St. Thomas Collection, an exhibit of paintings and photographs by artists represented by the gallery. The show opens with a reception from 5-7 p.m., on Friday, May 18, at Alexander's Bella Blu in Frenchtown, St. Thomas.
The collection will feature work from some of the gallery's most prominent artists. Gallery owner and "The Art Show" coordinator Claire Ochoa selected the paintings and photographs. "Not everyone has been able to make it downtown to our No. 1 Main Street location to see our gallery, so we are bringing the gallery to them." Ochoa said. "Alexander's Bella Blu is a great venue for the collection, supporting the arts and actively participating in the shows with Wente Wines support. When the restaurant was remodeled, particular attention was given to a hanging and lighting system to accommodate 'The Art Show'."
Many of the gallery's favorite artists are represented: John Holub's romantic landscapes in oil, Teri Jones' watercolors, Aimee Trayser's abstract collages, William Stoehr's bold figure paintings in acrylic and Gregory Samuel's island scenes. The exhibit will also include Haitian art originals curated by Carroll Sirhakis and photographs by renowned photographers Gary Felton of St. Thomas and Steve Simonsen of St. John.
The reception on opening night will be sponsored by Wente wines, and all work is for sale. The exhibit is open to the public and will run through July 8.
