Sheer restaurant which has established itself as an upscale dining establishment in Philipsburg, celebrated its second anniversary on May 7th 2011. The restaurant with its chic and swanky ambiance has already ranked high on the charts, and added a contemporary art gallery to its facility.
Sheer Art Gallery opened on Saturday evening, May 7, 2011, with a gala debut, featuring recent artworks by celebrated island artist, Sir Roland Richardson. The gallery will be opened daily from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM and from 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM and will be closed on Sundays.
"Sheer Art Gallery opening at 44 Front Street is intended to add to the variety of enterprises in downtown Philipsburg, that make our capital special", the new gallery owner, Valentine Davis stated. "Sir Richardson, who has been knighted by Her Majesty, Queen Beatrix and has often been referred to as the Father of Caribbean Impressionism, and being one of my favorite artists since our first meeting in 1979, was the ideal artist for the inaugural exhibition at Sheer Art Gallery," says Mr. Davis.
The gallery and exhibition will be open to island residents and tourists, all of whom are welcome.
Mr. Davis also indicated that arrangements will be made for students of the various high schools to view the exhibition and meet Sir Richardson.
