Devonish Art Gallery
Courtney Orlando Devonish is a Barbados born sculptor/potter who has attained an international reputation for his creations in wood, stone and clay. He has been residing in Anguilla for over 20 years, and the Devonish Art Gallery is the permanent showroom for his creations. Courtney began his art education at Birmingham University School of Education in England, where he majored in arts and crafts, specializing in sculpture. He did post-graduate studies in Italy under the auspices of an OAS fellowship in ceramic technology. Featured in many English and Caribbean publications, Courtney’s work has graced the pages of Le Figaro of France, Fielding’s Travel Guide of North America, and Seura of Finland. Courtney’s work can also be found in many private collections throughout the world. Some of his pieces have been bought by the Government of Barbados to be presented to international heads of state, including the President of the United States (1982), the President of Venezuela (1981) and the Prime Minister of Australia.
Carrolle Devonish has been working with beads since a trip in the early 90s to Kenya. She found the beads wonderfully earthy and has used African beads in many of her pieces. She collects beads from friends and from occasional bead shows. She especially loves African beads and continues to collect on her travels there. Recently she has become interested in Swarovski crystals and hopes to develop some crystal creations. She has lived in Anguilla since 1998.
In addition, the Devonish Art Gallery displays other works by local, Caribbean and international artists. If you’ve been searching for the perfect souvenir, a gorgeous Devonish piece will make a fine gift, or accent to a room!
They are open to the public from 9 A.M. To 5 P.M. Monday to Friday and from 9:30 A.M. To 5 P.M on Saturday.
