“VI Contemporary” Marks Second Exhibit at Cane Roots Art Gallery
Cane Roots Art Gallery on Company Street in downtown Christiansted hosted “V.I. Contemporary,” an aggregation of eight visual artists who share the concept of Crucian artist Lucien Downes. The opening on Jan. 13 drew as many as 100 patrons, gallery owner Sonia Deane said.
Downes and Augustin Holder were featured in the first “V.I. Contemporary” exhibit at Cane Roots Art Gallery in 2022. They brought their visual synergy to the walls, thus sharing their spirituality, biology, expressionism, and freedom as the elements that are the driving forces that usher in their creativity.
