The Ridley Gallery presents "Reality, Fantasy, Mystery: Haitian Art", an extensive selection of painting and sculpture from the 1960s through 1980s, celebrating many artists showcased and fostered by the Gallerie Issa in Port-au-Prince. Artists included in this exhibition include Seymour Bottex, Prosper Pierre-Louis, Georges Liautaud, Philton Latortue, Roger Francois, and beyond.

Means Smythe lived in Haiti for 15 years, working with many renowned artists of this prolific artistic time period, leaving this treasure trove of collected work upon her recent passing.
