Meet me in St. Croix USVI

For several years, St Croix has been my island escape from life in NY/NJ. St Croix USVI is my real life. We relocated full time in August 2023 and now call St. Croix home.

Sky Garden Gallery’s instagram account will chronicle the possibility of artful living while rediscovering ourselves and rehabbing our off the grid compound in St. Croix USVI.

Upcoming projects, finish installing outdoor kitchen, replace car port with a 20 foot shipping container garage for McCarty’s tools.

If you want to see what we are up to, give us a follow on @skygardengallery

In the meantime, enjoy the view..

International Sculpture Day @ Sky Garden Gallery – CANCELLED

I am so sorry to have to cancel the opening of our rooftop garden to visitors today. The plants are planted but with this slow to start Spring the plants are not splendiferous yet.

I also have an opening in New Canaan CT, and I’m trying to swing by Art House Productions’ Snowball gala tonight.

I promise to open the garden and emotional baggage cart display for frolicing later this Summer when the lavender is blooming.

International Sculpture Day is being celebrated on Governors Island today. My emotional baggage cart “Donda Donda Deluxe” in honor of Kanye West’s relationship with his Mother Dr. Donda West is on display all Summer at Art Crawl Harlem’s house 406b. Stop in and take a photo.

JC Friday Art Supply Swap

I am getting ready for the JC Friday Art Supply Swap. And to be honest I’m struggling with my hoarder tendencies while attempting to Marie Kondo my stash.

How are you doing collecting art supplies to swap? If there is something you are specifically looking for, drop a comment,

And come to Sky Garden Gallery’s Art Supply Swap with your items and trade, them for something else.

March 4, 2022, 5pm – 8pm
Location: Art 150 studio #321 @ 150 Bay Street, Jersey City. Entrance at Provost and First Street.

JC Friday Art Supply Swap is Coming…

Do you have leftover materials from an art project? Have WAY too much Cadmium White when you need Pastels? Do you have skeins of yarn you are not using? Or supplies from an art practice you no longer use?

We’re on the lookout for art supplies that can be used by someone else. Marie Condo your art supplies and make room for more joy in your life.

Here is how it’s going down:

Start rummaging in your closet and pulling out supplies you want to get rid of.

Come to Sky Garden Gallery’s Art Supply Swap

Quarantine Check In From Sky Garden Gallery

If I’ve learned anything during this time of uncertainty, things happen when they happen. And for a reason… If I just allow, there is less stress and anxiety in the not knowing of things.

… for real.

If you want to social distance watch a sunset with me from Sky Garden’s roof deck in Jersey City, please let me know. Open sky and air… and this view…

Ping me your avails.
