Photos From the 2nd Sip & Pour Resin Art Classes

On October 21st 2017, I had the pleasure of hosting two more Sip & Pour Resin Art classes at Magdoos Restaurant in Petion,Ville Haiti. With help from Isabelle, we taught  22 lucky ladies (and 1 charming Brazilian gentleman)  from 7 countries how to create their own resin art masterpieces. Once again, I was impressed by how freakin unique and individual each creation turned out. After just 2 hours they went home with gallery quality art. But don't take my word for it, just check out the photo evidence below!

Thank you again to our generous hosts, the Mahfoud family at Magdoos Restaurant in Petion Ville. Your bohemian-Lebanese garden space and generous staff made this Sip & Pour event all the more memorable for us. 

Are you interested in hosting a Sip & Pour event at your home in Haiti over the holidays? Just email HelloAmanacer@gmail.com and start gathering  a group of 6-15 adults together to get the party rolling.

Much love to you all,

-Amanacer (Emily)

My Bare-All Interview with Volver Art

Amanacer Art in Haiti by painter Emily Bauman

What's your aesthetic? Could you sum it up in two or three words? Regardless of your style, I believe that paintings, sculpture, books and photography are what give a home its soul. Below is a sneak peek into some corners of my home-studio that embody my tropical boho-luxe aesthetic.

With the advent of social media and online inspo galore, we can all become the curators of our dream spaces.  That's one of the sensibilities behind my friends at Volver Art, who believe life should be a living work of art. What a gorgeous idea, non!?

In my world, creole and art are the two healing balms that explain everything without words. Finding a sense of belonging comes down to my accent and what comes out of my paintbrush. I recently confided this in a bare-all interview I recently did with Volver Art. They wrote:

"Through her art, Emily aims to create a sense of belonging. There is a sense of differences being reconciled across her body of work. In her words, “Rich, mythical creatures from opposing traditions find a home on the same canvas.” She creates her own mythical world, replete with its own symbols and meaning. Emily’s sensibilities speak to art’s ability to cut across differences in traditions and bring people back together. They also give pause for thought about art’s capacity to make people feel at home."

Sarah, of Volver Art has a beautiful way with words, and I love that she aims for "poetry not perfection." For the full in-depth interview and more of Volver Art's coverage of artists, you can check out their page here!

Solo show: Amanacer at Yanvalou in Haiti

Dear friends, art-lovers and random passerbys:

After a year of playing with resin, getting sticky and making lots of mistakes, I've finally perfected my fluid art method. Yes, I've travelled to beaches from Haiti to Portugal to Turks and Caicos in search of inspiration. Thankfully I found more than my share. To celebrate, I'm launching a series of resin fine art tables at paintings at my favourite local joint.That's right! Yanvalou Cafe-Bar-Resto in Pacot, Haiti will host the next edition of "Golden Dreams" by Amanacer. If you're in Haiti, I hope you can come out to the June 3rd launch party starting at 5pm. Otherwise, the art will be available all week, and I always post fresh updates on facebook.com/AmanacerArt.

I was thrilled to give an interview about the show for HaitiLuxe, so please check it out here!

Art on the Run: Côtes de Fer, Haiti

Welcome to the wild beaches of Haiti's "Iron Coast" AKA the Côtes-de-Fer.                                                                                     Art on the run is a fun way to combine my art with the spaces and people who inspire it's inception. I hope you enjoy these captures from last weekend's salty adventures in Haiti's south.

Climb out of your shell. The colour and texture of the caribbean coast never cease to inspire me. I escaped the life of a cubicle-dweller, 9-5  government employee to become a creative entrepreneur, painter and part-time development practitioner instead. Welcome to my new life in the 509. #AyitiCherie
