Indigo Art Gallery

A display of work created by Marie Frederick can be seen at Indigo, which is located right next to the cottage where she feels inspired to create her work. Although she was born in Normandy and studied art throughout Europe and in North Africa, she has managed to capture something about the nature of the island in her paintings that even locals have been captivated by.

Ms. Frederick's works are made with pen and ink, water color, acrylic paint, and oil pastels -- whatever moves her with regard to a particular piece. When you come and visit, not only will you be able to browse her works, but also purchase some of her fresh juice, rum punch, coffee, and bush teas for you to sip sitting down on a driftwood chair and watch the birds flying over the canopy.

Getting There

Located on the northern part of the island of Dominica, Indigo Art Gallery is on the premises of Indigo Tree Cottage, and welcomes residents and travelers who are exploring and shopping on this part of the island. However, even if you aren't staying in this location, you are free to drop by. In case you're wondering, Portsmouth is a short distance away to the west.

If you happen to enjoy doing a lot of comparison shopping, you're probably out of luck -- but you could at least consider stopping by one of the other shops that are located nearby, like Ti Kai Crafts. It's located only 2.2 miles West of Indigo Art Gallery, so it would be practical to visit them as well.
