Art in the Frame Foundation at The Harbour Gallery, St Aubin was saddened to hear about the death of one of Jersey's most interesting and generous characters, David Gainsborough Roberts.
David a great collector and raconteur was such a support to us at The Harbour Gallery when we started up 15 years ago. He would regularly pop down to the gallery bringing friends with him. He opened exhibitions for us and for one exhibition supplied a Mariiyn Monroe look-alike wearing the Marilyn Monroe red dress, arriving at the gallery in the most beautiful classic car to a live fanfare.... what an evening!
At Jersey Textile Showcase one year, David supplied us with models and a fashion show of Marilyn's clothes, our hundreds of UK and European guests were stunned to be able to see all these beautiful garments.
He was a great Patron to up and coming artists and craftworkers. One of our textile artists Christine Witham was commissioned by David to embroider a Marilyn Monroe, in her red dress, on the back of a three quarter length black jacket. This lead to two further jackets one with a snake and another with a Red Indian chief.
Rest in Peace David, you are going to be missed by us and St Aubin. ... See MoreSee Less
