    Starting on October 10, 2010, at 4pm, Kas di Arte will be holding an exhibition entitled “The Kingdom of The Netherlands:  Union in Diversity” to commemorate the transition on 10-10-10 of Bonaire, St. Eustatius (Statia), and Saba (collectively the BES islands) from the country of the Netherlands Antilles into the fold of The Netherlands.

    The Netherlands Antilles cease to exist on 10-10-10 as well, so the date holds great promise and concern as well.

    The exhibit brings together twenty artists – ten from Bonaire and ten from outside Bonaire, namely from Aruba, Curacao, and Holland – to present works which comment on the transition of the BES islands.

    Participating artists are from outside Bonaire are Gustave Nouel of Aruba/Holland, Johannes Boekhoudt of Costa Rica/Bonaire, Elvis Tromp of Aruba, Edmond Tujeehut of Aruba, Frank Croes of Aruba, Wine Fransen of Holland, Ad Rooymans of Holland, Harald Vlugt of Holland, Yubi Kirindongo of Curacao, Ruben La Cruz of Curacao/Holland, and Karolien Helweg of Holland.

    Local artists from Bonaire include Nochi Coffie, Henk Roozendaal, Frans Booi, Renate van der Bijl, Ria Verhoef, Manuela Winklaar, Winfred Dania, Jake Richter, Ronald Verhoeven, and Sedney Marten.

    The exhibition is open nightly from 5pm until 9pm, through October 31, 2010. (Source: The Bonaire Insider)

  • Wil Dijkstra Exhibit at Plaza Resort

    October 2, 2010
    4:30pm, Exhibit Opens

    Painting by Wil Dijkstra
    Painting by Wil Dijkstra

    Starting October 2nd, 2010, there will be an exhibition of paintings by artist Wil Dijkstra in the reception area of the Plaza Resort on Bonaire. The opening will be officiated by Lt. Governor Glenn Thode at 4:30 pm on the opening day.

    The majority of the new paintings on display are inspired by living on the beautiful island of Bonaire, with rich, colorful imagery. Themes include portraits, nature, the underwater world and abstract impressions. In addition to paint, natural materials found on the beach, like palm leaves, sand, and coralline rock are also used in the construction of Wil’s paintings.

    Wil had very successful exhibitions here on Bonaire in the former Cinnamon Art Gallery as well as at Kas di Arte and Littman’s Artistique.

    Wil left Bonaire to live and work in Holland several years ago, but have now moved back to Bonaire via an inspirational seven month sailboat journey, and have been living on the island since the beginning of the year.

    The exhibit will be open daily from 9:00am hours until 6:00pm, and will run until April 1st, 2011.

    Plaza Resort is located at J.A. Abraham Boulevard 80. Phone: 717 2500.
