Zemi is a funky art gallery in the trendy Redcliffe Quay district that features traditional Antiguan and Barbudan artwork with a twist. An indigenous word that means "God" or "Good Luck Spirit," Zemi was given to the shop by the native Caribs.

ZEMI Art Gallery

The artwork on display at Zemi touches on the island's heritage and local customs in a new, fresh way. Visitors have trouble keeping their jaws from dropping on the floor at all the unique pieces available at this shop. Nothing you find here is "Made in China." Everything is made either by Stephen or one of several local artists. If it's sold at Zemi, it cannot be sold anywhere else on the island, which makes everything one of a kind. They sell a wide selection of t-shirts with Carib designs on them for kids and adults, painted Calabash bowls and masks, painted wooden platters and bowls, painted metal fish, and other local items.
