Avantia Damberg in Shadwell Great House

Avantia Damberg in Shadwell Great House

Curaçao visual artist Avantia Damberg in July 2018 did a short ‘artist in residency’ in St. Kitts and Nevis, where she stayed at the Art & Wellness Centre ‘Shadwell Great House’.

Shadwell Great House in St. Kitts: Our first artist-in-residence, at our first show. We are excited and honoured to host Curacao’s very talented artist, Avantia Damberg (1977).

Join us on Friday evening for Avantia’s art exhibit.

Refreshments will be served.
This is a free event.
Donations are welcomed.

Avantia had a short residency of 2 weeks but was completely inspired by Shadwell Great House and everything involving this magical place. This resulted in an expo of still developing self-portrait series, portraits, drawings, a video and text-installation. All with elements of Shadwell’s Great House, nature, people, artifacts and more.

Avantia Damberg is a conceptual artist based in Willemstad, Curaçao (Dutch Caribbean). Together with a group of other artists she runs a creative incubator, Uniarte, in the centre of Willemstad. Avantia also gives art tours and teaches art theory at the evening high-school.
