Some years ago, Goa’s well known artist Yolanda de Sousa Kammermeier imagined her own world. And then in 1997 she brought that fantastical dream into fruition – resulting in the fairy-tale like castle style Art Chamber, Galeria de Bellas Artes. Run by Yolanda and her husband Rudolf, Art Chamber was conceived as a space both to promote Yolanda’s own work as well as that of other artists from Goa. Since then, the gallery has grown into a significant space for creative collaboration hosting art exhibits, classical music soirees, world music and dance projects, film screenings, weekly art markets and a clutch of interactive diverse cultural events with equal enthusiasm. Yolanda herself enjoys international acclaim for her unique ceramic style canvases. And she works tirelessly along with Rudolf to create a more dynamic art scene in Goa.
The couple strives to give Goan artists’ global exposure and Goan audiences a taste of art from around the globe.

Masks N More: Ismail Khayat, Hama Hashim and Yolanda De Sousa Kammermeier This was a truly unique show that brought three artists together – the widely recognized Khayat and Hashim from Kurdistan together with Goa’s own artistic force, Yolanda. The cross-cultural exchange between the Kurdish and Indian artists was intended to stimulate and explore a meaningful and deeper understanding of the two unique cultures, their tragedies and histories.
