Intriguingly located right in the heart of the rainforest, the Fig Tree Studio Art Gallery displays and sells a collection of works by Caribbean artists. Additionally, an array of crafts are available for purchase.
Many visitors are thrown off by the fact that Fig Tree Studio Art Gallery is located amidst a rainforest, but the truth is its location has to do with the artist whose works are displayed here: Sallie Harker. The land that the gallery is located on is actually hers. Harker invites guests onto her property to view her original oil and water colors, including the well-established series "Cruising the Caribbean," which is painted in oil on Wallaba shingles. Indeed, Harker specializes in seascapes, but you will also find paintings of native birds, turtles, and fish.
The art gallery also features a section dedicated to the art and crafts of local artisan. GillyGobinet, Naydene Gonella, Mehalah Spencer, Shari Erickson and Jennifer Meranto all have pieces here.
They sell the Banana leaf picture by Nzimbu Browne and the hand carved calabash by Ezekiel Jno Baptiste which are good quality, reasonably priced and very popular with tourists.
Fig Tree Studio Art Gallery is located in John Hughes, a neighborhood in Antigua; it's 3.4 miles to the west-northwest of Falmouth Harbour.
