Welcome To St. Maarten St. Martin

St. Martin Artist Sir Roland Richardson

St. Martin Art


The Roland Richardson Gallery in Marigot offers visitors a glimpse of island magic in a 19th century townhouse designated as an official historic landmark and where they can step into the past and feast their eyes on wall-to-wall magnificent art.

His colorful “Plein Air” paintings, always created on location, have earned him recognition as a leading Caribbean Impressionist with over 40 years of work in Oil, Watercolor, Pastel, Charcoal and Etching. Native to St. Martin, Sir Roland is certainly the island’s best known artist and he has been distinguished with both a Knighthood and Lifetime Achievement Awards for his contributions to St. Martin’s culture.

On Thursday mornings from 10 am to 1 pm, Sir Roland conducts Master Classes at his Marigot Gallery on Rue de Republique. Art appreciators can experience painting demonstrations and creative talks while viewing portraits, still lifes and “plein air” paintings done in the gallery’s garden.

There is also a year-round exhibition of Sir Roland’s work at the famous La Samanna Hotel on Baie Longue where on Wednesday mornings he conducts another Master Class.
