The Art Gallery
The Tobago Art Gallery is the brainchild of artist Martin Superville. The gallery is a work of art by itself. It is minutes away from the Claude Noel Highway on the beautiful island of Tobago in the Caribbean. The Gallery sits in a peaceful wooded area at the edge of a large pond. The Tobago Art Gallery comprises a collection of structures, painted in bold colours to lift the spirit: orange, green and aubergine - with an interesting garden and an elevated deck, The Tea Garden, where visitors can relax and enjoy refreshments and the view of the surrounding area. The Gallery was built specifically for the promotion and enjoyment of the art of Trinidad and Tobago and is geared at providing a permanent venue for exhibitions by artist Martin Superville, as well as other invited artists and is a meeting place for "kindred spirits", interested in all aspects of art.
