Wonder where locals shop for paintings year round? The twenty-three year success of Mango Tango Art Gallery on St. Thomas is the result of a unique relationship between the artists it represents and the gallery owners, Jane Coombes and Smokey Pratt.
Coombes explains that "the artists give exclusivity and total commitment to creating great art, and in return Mango Tango gives them exhibition space, marketing power and encouragement to take risks."
Of course, if you are in St. Thomas, please visit the gallery; it overflows with treasures. Mango Tango is located on Route 38 in the Al Cohen Plaza across from Randy's Bistro. The 1800 square foot gallery features original paintings, sculpture, wood turning, photography, and limited and open edition prints. Mango Tango highlights wood turning by Holland Van Gores, mixed media by W B Thompson, oils by Don Dahlke, watercolors by Carol Carter, Anne Miller and Dana Wylder, wall and tabletop figurative works by Mandy Thody and humor in art in the work of F Smokey Pratt.
