Turks and Caicos Art Galleries

Original art by Alex Skye at Making Waves art gallery in Grace Bay on Providenciales.

The Grace Bay region on Providenciales is the centre for art galleries and luxury shopping in the Turks and Caicos. Most shops and galleries tend to be found in one of the shopping plazas in Grace Bay, including the Saltmills, Regent Village, Ocean Club West Plaza and Ports of Call. Several plazas are in close proximity to each other, so it’s convenient to browse many galleries on foot.

As may be expected, the incredible marine environment and spectacular beaches of the Turks and Caicos serve as an inspiration for much of the art created locally. Every artist has their own perspective, interpretation, and media, yet the ocean, and blue, turquoise, and topaz are generally the prevailing theme and colours. There are thousands of paintings to browse through, including colourful works done with acrylic, oil, and watercolour.

There’s a wide array of Turks and Caicos scenes represented, including well-known coasts such as Grace Bay Beach, Mudjin Harbour, Sapodilla Bay, and Blue Hills, as well as often-overlooked yet beautiful beaches such as Northwest Point, Bambarra Beach, and Three Marys Cays.

Sculpture

Sculptures can also be found in our local galleries, albeit the collection isn’t quite as extensive as it is with paintings. Many pieces are either wood carvings, or are additive works that incorporate driftwood, shells, conch, and corals. Glazed ceramic tiles are another colourful option.

Local Artists

The Turks and Caicos supports a fascinating collection of artists, both from the islands and abroad.

If you’re looking for something unique, several local artists and galleries specialise in original paintings. Making Waves, a working studio and gallery at Ocean Club Plaza for artist Alex Skye, is one such location.

There’s a great selection of fine art photography as well. As with paintings, ocean and beach scenes are popular, and prints on a wide range of media are available, including face-mounted acrylic, aluminium, canvas, and matted prints. Prints can be found is sizes ranging from tiny desktop examples, to large format prints that are several feet wide. Many photographers are able accommodate custom sizes, triptych displays, unique mediums, and specific beaches and locations that may hold special significance.
