The Sloop Jones Art Gallery and Studio has become a St. John staple in the over two decades of radiating rainbows from the East of the Road.

The artist, known as Sloop Jones, paints clothing, banners and signs in his garden studio and has been specializing in delight since 1986.

Take the gorgeous drive to the East End ( via route 10) from Coral Bay and find something magical to take home with you - a hand-painted dress, beach bag, sign, banner or something else entirely.

Immerse yourself even more in the Sloop Jones world of color by taking a Shirt of Art workshop, where you can make your own piece of wearable art to take St. John with you wherever you go.

Now you can even stay in the Rainbow Room at Sloop Jones during your St. John vacation and walk to a private beach from your quiet, breezy cottage.

You pull up and there is a gate to what looks like an ordinary house... but when you walk through the gate you find art everywhere.

Sloop keeps his place at the end of the road but it is worth it to head out there. Lots of designs and the variety of items has increased. This trip got a wall hanging, a few shirts and a nice custom shirt for our dog sitter.

We stopped on our drive to the east end of the island. Sloop has lots of original items to pick from. My teenage girls and I all found something we loved. Worth taking a look if you're in the area.

No one is as creative and colorful as Sloop Jones. Have 3 of his shirts and am always tempted to buy more. The best. Great quality selection and just fun to browse.

Got something for everyone in the family. Love my painted swim shirt! It's quite a drive up there but it's worth the trip.

On our most recent trip to St. John, and after having skin cancer removed yet again, I decided I wanted another, yet unique rash guard to protect my skin. While checking out Sloop Jones' website I saw a rash guard I fell in love with and between Sloop and Leah, they made sure the perfect one was there when I... More

Quite the drive to get there, but wouldn't miss it! Scenery is stunning. Shop is filled with beautiful island clothing, but not easy on the purse. A wonderful moments of our trip was purchased, however.

We took the ferry from St Thomas to St John. From there we took a taxi to Sloop's Studio where he and his team produce hand painted shirts and dresses along with a number of other items. It is a long but beautiful drive and we love our purchases. Before you make the trip you might want to check the... More

Over the years I've picked up pieces of clothing at Sloop Jones during our annual vacation to St. John. This year I learned that Sloop is now holding workshops where we get to paint a shirt and hat to keep. What a fun and memorable day. We started by learning about color, pigments, binders and how to mix our own... More
