Next on my list is Art 146 on Victoria Row, tucked away in a lower level space on 146 Richmond Street. I met Vicente Ramirez the Art Dealer and Owner and he raved about the brilliant talent of our Island artists. Vicente is from Puerto Rico and has been an art dealer for 10 years. Here is a short CBC video interview that talks about his vision for the gallery when he opened the doors earlier this year. You can find Art 146 on Facebook, Twitter or via their website.
I was also blown away by our Island artists showcased in his gallery. There is something for all price ranges – big or small, from prints to canvas.
Artist: Tricia MacNeil Baldwin
Artist: Karl D. MacKeeman
And this oil on canvas piece, which is not for sale called "Stela" - Vicente's beautiful daughter.
