An art gallery has existed in Windwardside since the 1990's: at first called The Breadfruit Gallery, it was renamed The Peanut Gallery in 2003. Gersh Geenty and Emilie Declippeleir acquired TPG in June 2011 having purchased El Momo Folk Art, next door, in February 2009.
If the gallery had a mission statement it would be 'to bring the best in Caribbean art, and in particular Saban art, to the residents of and visitors to, Saba'. To this end, the owners are constantly on the lookout for new artists; maintain regular contact with current exhibitors; and travel frequently to other islands in the Caribbean in search of new works.

One of our resident artists, Heleen Cornet has an exhibition coming up at the Agora Gallery, in Chelsea, Manhattan. Dates: 1st - 21st November 2012.
Our recent exhibition at The Peanut Gallery, "The Locals", was held between 3rd and 10th September 2011 and was very well received by both Saba residents and visitors alike. The Opening Night attracted a knowledgable audience of over 50 and the subsequent press reviews extolled the wealth of talent on our small island. Our thanks to all who exhibited, attended and worked so hard to make our first exhibition such a success.
All the exhibits may be viewed on-line at the following web site address:
Details of our next exhibition will be released shortly.
