About Lisa

Thank you for exploring art — I love it too. My interest begins with literature, with the love of language and poetics that can be as compelling as visual art. The dream of owning a gallery goes back to my twenties in Montreal, following the art scene from museum to gallery to alternative hangouts. And the brand Black Pony dropped out of a book. 

My careers as educator and museum director underpin my keen interest for presenting contemporary artists from the Atlantic World. I am fascinated by the geographical space from The Azores to Trinidad and the intertwined cultural and historical narratives of the Islands.


There are so many talented artists in the region and yet finding them, getting to them, is a challenge. Black Pony Gallery, as a virtual space, removes that challenge and is beckoning the global art market to pay attention. Please join me in recognizing some of the talented contemporary visual art makers living in the Atlantic.
