Cayman’s Pure Art Gallery was featured in the November 2004 issue of Art Business News magazine.
Distributed to art galleries, framers and supporters of the arts in the USA, Art Business News communicates solutions for the art marketplace www.artbusinessnews.com
Pure Art’s general manager Debbie Chase is quoted as stating that the gallery’s power ‘was restored just in time, because the corners of some of her paintings were starting to curl from the humidity.’
The article, which discussed galleries’ survival strategies in this 1004 hurricane season in the states and the Caribbean noted that although Hurricane Ivan hit the Cayman Islands beyond the highest Category 5 level, Pure Art opened a month later.
Art Business News stated that ‘for some galleries reclaiming their lost business is impossible.’
Noting that the Cayman Islands are allowing tourists to return, the issue notes that although ‘Chase’s gallery was spared, around 90 per cent of the island’s structures were in some way damaged, which is keeping local traffic busy with their own cleanup.’
Locally, Ms Chase appreciates her gallery being noted in this established art magazine.
The loss of art in this hurricane season is just one factor of the huge personal and professional loss of Ivan and Chase is thankful that Pure Art on South Church Street is up and thoroughly in service in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands, featuring many local original paintings of various mediums, artists and sizes, as well as Cayman art prints, handmade collectables and Caribbean gifts, from sculptures to Christmas ornaments.
Pure Art is open 10am to 4pm daily except Sundays and Wednesdays with holiday hours until 6pm every Friday and Saturday, including the four days leading up to Christmas.
