Photos: Pink & Chameau’s “Au Natural” Art Show

December 31, 2014

Artists Ronnie Chameau and Donna Pink recently hosted an exhibit called “Au Natural” at the Bermuda Arts Centre, with Ms. Chameau saying of her pieces on display that “most of them sold.”

Both of the artists’ works were created with only natural materials, including banana leaves, palm fronds, palmetto leaves, bay grape leaves, and magnolia pods.

Ms. Pink’s works included several forms of jewelry and neck pieces, while Ms. Chameau’s works focused on holiday-themed creations.

Ms. Chameau’s “The Nativity” is crafted from a palm frond used for the back, while the base is Bermuda cedar. Mary and Joseph are crafted from banana and palm leave, their heads are nuts, the halo is a Norfolk pine leaf, and baby Jesus is laying in a coconut seed.

    Fantastic, Ronnie and Donna. The photos of your work are wonderful. I hope enough Bermudians view them to appreciate the imagination it takes to transform raw materials of flora into items of beauty, not only for display, but for wearing as well. All the crafts people of Bermuda need to be recognized and supported, and you have always been at the forefront of this cause in your professionalism and creativity. Happy New Year!
