The Richard Haynes Boardwalk is an out-and-back 1.6-mile trail along a section of coast in Bridgetown, Barbados. In addition to offering great views of the Caribbean Sea, it is also currently home to “Colours of Barbados,” promoted as the “longest” art exhibition in the country.
Utilizing a metal and wood wall surrounding a construction site, the display offers a wide variety of art created by local artists, who were invited to offer their art to the elements and to the world. The exhibition is intended to create a distraction and enhancement to the boardwalk experience, with the art creating a space of vibrant color and self-expression.
Beside most pieces is a placard including the artist’s name, the title of the artwork, and an artist’s statement often containing additional information about the art. Some pieces also include a streetlamp above to illuminate the art and boardwalk in the evening, adding an additional industrial element to the work on display.

Written By Joelcy Kay – Curator
Every piece of art, crafts, or textiles, hanging on my walls or ceiling tells a tiny passage of my life. Most of it was acquired during my travels. Many of these treasures are damaged whether because they were broken on arrival, as the pieces were tightly stuffed into my backpack, or weathered by the unforgiving Florida tropical humidity. But in the end, they are my precious processions and they are part of the stories I tell. It feels good to have rugs hanging from the ceiling, masks on the walls, and drinking my morning coffee thinking of the mugs’ tale. The point here is that art has a lot to offer each one of us; ART IS VERY PERSONAL!
The NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY offers that personal experience as the individual has the opportunity to buy the art from the creator and by doing so a new event to remember is born. When you hang the work of art on your wall there is a story behind it; an artist you now know and follow. And instead of the usual “I purchased this at “WWW(BIG BIG ART STORE).COM” the connection enriches the emotional value of your art piece.
WHY DISPLAY YOUR ART AT THE NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY?
The gallery is designed to connect the art seekers and collectors with artists directly. We offer artists a COMMISSION FREE / CONTRACT FREE online platform to sell their creations and engage with their clients using portfolio pages that are engaging with large images and a dramatic black background.
NO MIDDLEMAN is a boutique ART GALLERY; individuals browsing our archives and portfolio pages are relaxed, not pressured to sign up, agree with website terms, or maneuvering out of pop-up windows.
For details regarding participating in the NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY please contact Joelcy Kay the curator at email@example.com.
