The exhibition, entitled ‘Nine Miles North’, opened on Friday at the Oasis Art Gallery in Port Elizabeth with a well-attended reception for invited guests. Gallery curator L.D. ‘Lucy’ Quashie, whose paintings also appear in the show, says she is delighted that Dinks agreed to bring his paintings to Bequia.

The Oasis Art Gallery is dedicated to presenting works by artists of St Vincent and the Grenadines in feature exhibitions and its permanent collection.

On sale and display, too, is banana artwork by Nzimbu Browne, plus woodcarving, sailing model boats and a variety of gift items ‘all made here’.

The exhibition runs through January. Gallery hours are Monday to Friday 9.30am to 4:00 pm.
