2018--and we're off! Exhibition in Barbados.

We would love to see you in Barbados at the Gallery of Caribbean Art on Feb 11th.  This is a group show of 4 artist:  Susan Mains, Asher Mains, Catherine Forter-Chee-a-tow and Virgil Broodhagen.  




2017--It was a busy busy year!

Woefully, most of the work I have done this year will be found at

Not woefully, wonderfully!

Check out Grenada's second appearance with a National Pavilion at Biennale di Venezia!  I was the commissioner.

And I participated in the Cariftesta Exhibition in Barbados at the Gallery of Caribbean Art.

And I had the great privilege of doing an artist residency with curator Rekha Sameer in September in Jodhpur India. Yes India!


Soon after hosted and curated the 4th Grenada Contemporary exhibition 30 artists from 11 countries. 

Thanks Amy Canestra for doing the catalog!

Now, on to 2018.  First item is a group show of 4 at the Gallery of Caribbean Art in Barbados, opening February 11th.  Me, Asher Mains, Virgil Broodhagen and Catherine Forter-Chee-a-tow. What a combination!

Restoration-- a two person show.

Susan Mains and Rene Froelich exhibit at the Susan Mains Gallery in Grenada.


See you at the opening on Thursday!  More pics to come.

Ok just tilt your head to the left.  You get the idea.



Mea Culpa -- been too long! New Works

I have to apologize profusely to you who follow my work.  This personal site has been sadly, woefully, neglected.  Good thing my real children are grown up if this is an example!

So, some new pics of work in the studio.  I have a show coming up with Rene Froehlich, sculptor in August, at Susan Mains Gallery (Art and Soul) in Grenada.

Thanks for always being true, even when I seemingly abandon you!

Susan Mains and Asher Mains have exhibited at the Gallery of Caribbean Art many times--it has almost become a ritual every two years.  New themes and old, the colour and intensity is still the same, as is the obvious love for all things Caribbean.
