Sorry,… on Stage


Sorry,... on Stage

Friday  August 11
7.00- 9.30 PM

Sorry, on Stage is a multidisciplinairy event brought to you by musicians, thinkers, dancers, writers and performers of Curaçao. Some are young, some are older, some are well known and some are underground talents.

What they have in common is that these artists will perform their reactions on the apology the Dutch Government made for its role in the slave trade. The current exhibition Sorry,… is a reflection by 19 visual artists on this apology. With Sorry, on Stage the floor belongs to artists from other art disciplines. On Friday August 11 from 7 pm to 9:30 pm.

On the Landhuis Bloemhof premises you can enjoy performances by writer Roland ‘Roi’ Colastica, the duo Iris Zavala Blanco & Vesuhely Americaan, Tittel del Mar, violinist CJ Opus, dancer True A, pianist Djuvaldric Groenenberg, dancer Rayzahna accompanied by Tshepo Seshaba on the ‘bari’, spoken word artist Robyn and a special appearance by Gordon & Friends. Tipiko Pasa Bon will open the evening and will let us go out with a blast at the end of this evening. And of course you will be able to visit the thought-provoking exhibition Sorry,…

So join us August 11 and be part of this experience with dance, music, literature and spoken word. This event is supported by the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds Caribisch Gebied.

Sorry,... on Stage starts at 7 pm and ends at 9:30 pm. Tickets @ 10 ANG for adults and 5 ANG for children up to 12 years old are available at Landhuis Bloemhof and at the door on the evening of this event. Parking is also available at the Orco Bank parkinglot

Gwen Anderson Open Atelier


Open Atelier Gwen Anderson

Saturday May 6

In 2006 Gwen Anderson re-emerged in her artistic element when living in New York after she joined the Art Students League.  In 2008 she moved to London where she kept her artistic rhythm by joining various courses in a variety of disciplines such as mixed media painting, experimental drawing, fine art photography, live drawing and art history. In 2010 she enrolled at The Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Media and Design at the Metropolitan University in London, where she later attended the Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design, and completed her Masters in Fine Arts (Hons), Merit in 2014. During her stay in London she participated in many exhibitions, alternating between London and Curaçao.

When she moved to Tokyo the next year, she immersed herself into travelling, creating art and participating in exhibitions.
In 2018 she moved back to Curaçao where she continued creating art and participated in many group exhibitions to this day.

The paintings exhibited in this show, consist of multiple layers. In some of the works she uses silver leaf as a ‘clean slate’ on which colors, figures or images reflect themselves. The grids of tarnished silver leaf organize a silence onto which forms, or photographic images are placed as output from lifetime impressions. Other works are layers of encaustic, pigment, ink and shellac. The unpredictable nature of the materials and the hypnotic flame of her torch, help her to disappear into a meditative, focused state as she creates.
