The signs are up, the gate is open. It can mean only one thing. Green Turtle Cay’s Lowe Art Gallery is receiving visitors.

Nestled within one of the cay’s most beautiful gardens, on the crest of the hill between Gillam Bay and Black Sound, the gallery features gorgeous oil paintings by Bahamian artist, Green Turtle Cay native, and my cousin, Alton Lowe.

Alton’s paintings are treasured by art collectors worldwide for their realistic depictions of Bahamian people, island scenes, tropical flowers and wildlife. His works hang in homes, businesses and galleries around the globe – even a palace or two!

Members of the British royal family own several of Alton’s paintings, including one presented by the Bahamian government to Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer as a wedding gift.

His work is featured on countless Bahamian postage stamps and on the cover of each issue of Abaco Life.

The Lowe Art Gallery also displays a selection of fascinating sculptures by artist James Mastin, whose work is showcased at the Loyalist Memorial Sculpture Garden in town.

All artwork on exhibit at the gallery is available for purchase.

Located just a minute or two north of the New Plymouth settlement (look for the signs identifying the driveway), the Lowe Art Gallery is open weekdays 9:30 am – 1:00 pm, or by appointment at (242) 365-4264. The gallery will remain open until mid-July.

Limited edition prints of some of Alton’s paintings are also available at the Albert Lowe Museum.

UPDATE: June 20, 2015 – I’ve had a few requests for pricing on the paintings and sculptures in the gallery. If you’re interested in any of the pieces and would like more information, please contact Alton Lowe at (242) 365-4264 or contact me and I can give you his email address. Thanks!

    I miss going to see his latest paintings when he used to have the shows @ the Nassau Beach Hotel.

      Gina, I believe he’s working on paintings for a Nassau show — not sure whether a date has been set… I’ll definitely post about it once it’s scheduled.
