Galleries go off the beaten track

Why St Barth, a small Caribbean island best known for its beaches? The New York-based dealer Fergus McCaffrey (L2) set up an artist residency programme there in 2005, followed by an 800 sq. ft gallery in 2014.

“Tavares Strachan is the latest member of a remarkable group of artists who have made groundbreaking work on the island,” says Alexandra von Stumberg McCaffrey, adding that “an important group of collectors have also chosen to make St Barth their winter home, so the island is a rather remarkable confluence of great artists and collectors”.
