Cane Roots Art Gallery’s grand opening during December’s Art Thursday gave the west end of Company Street in downtown Christiansted “new life,” with visual artist Niarus Walker’s “Women Alone” exhibit.
The cultural gallery is a stone’s throw from Sunday Market Square, the historical public space founded in 1733 during the period of slavery in the former Danish West Indies.
Patrons flocked to the brightly lit art space, which is the rehabilitation of a two-story building that lay dormant for a number of years. Owner and art collector Sonia Deane purchased the 2,800 square foot building and fulfilled her dream of creating a “bonafide” art gallery on the street level and a complex of residences on the second floor in the heart of downtown Christiansted.
