Eliana B Artistry — a small business committed to fostering spaces that are dedicated to the arts and creative expression — in partnership with Cane Roots Gallery will host a “bonafide” art gallery in the heart of downtown Christiansted on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. 

The event, which is free, is the duo's first youth gallery exhibit, and it will be held at Cane Roots Art Gallery located at 24 Company Street. "This event is intended to honor and encourage the young creatives of the Virgin Islands, specifically St. Croix, and to also create space entrepreneurial spirits of said youth in their business endeavors," stated well-known St. Croix artist Eliana Schuster Brown.

As part of the exhibit, Ms. Brown's Molding The Artist Within concept, which was created to help the youth of the territory realize their full potential, tap into their creative selves and witness community support, will be on display.

"We will be showcasing artwork from children ages 4 to 19 ranging from digital art to published literature," she said. "I am very excited for this event as I get to witness pure love and talent from our young yet skilled creatives. I have had the pleasure of teaching many of the children of the Virgin Islands through my workshops, paint parties, and free events. I am hopeful that my dedication to make change in the way we see and support the arts will impact the VI positively."

This project is jointly supported by a grant from the Virgin Islands Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts in Washington, DC, a federal agency.
