BAZ-RRR GALLERIA & BRASSERIE, presents Laureen Eman

Artist Laureen Eman inaugurated a solo exhibition of Saturday at BAZ-RRR, in the presence of family members, fans and friends. The Baz-RRR walls are now graced with her latest works, two floors of colorful and charming frames and medallions. While already an established abstract colorist Laureen started working with floetrol, a latex paint additive, and resin and just fell in love with the results. Every piece is unique and gives her a great desire to create more, leaving the viewer with the desire to buy one.

They are reasonably priced, and depict CREATION, nature, the ocean, the planets, plant-life and our seasons.

BAZ-RRR is a unique concept in Oranjestad. It aims to create a new experience that unites the community, aspiring to become a business with a Purpose as a Catalyst of Positivism, Philanthropy, Artistry and Sustainability. 

The Gallery walls regularly host local art. By creating this gallery space BAZ-RRR is contributing to the Art & Cultural life of Aruba. Past local artist-exhibition included Aruba’s Muchi’Mondi Luna & The Wolff, Armando Goedgedrag, Elvis Tromp, Levy Geerman, Damilice Mansur, Vanessa Paulina, Ronchi de Cuba and now also Laureen Eman.
