Since the end of 2015 the Artists of St Barth association has been very active in St Barth to promote the art and artists of the island, but not only. For some time now, it has been expanding and trying to promote artists from the surrounding islands. After Irma, the association has also gathered a set of works donated by the association’s artists and whose sales proceeds contribute to various actions for the restoration of the island.
The famous photographer Antoine Verglas is the godfather of this first ArtWeek. Nils Dufau, Chairman of the Tourism Committee, also participated in this event. The principle, 5 artists, 5 places, 5 stars in 5 dates.
So from February 4 to 9, you can discover, « Triptychs » by Antoine Verglas at Hôtel Le Barthélemy in Grand Cul de Sac, « St Barth Shells » by Laurent Benoit at Villa Marie in Colombier, « Turquoise » by Pierre Carreau at the Toiny Hotel in Toiny, « Beyond the Sea » by Fanxi Delarue at the new Manapany Hotel in Anse des Cayes and « Black @ Wild » by Michael Gramm at the Christopher Hotel in Pointe Milou.
In short, St Barth will still vibrate thanks to all these talented photographers who contribute so much to highlighting the island, both through their daily work as photographers for real estate agencies or magazines, but also for their artistic views on our island.
