  • Hear/Here exhibition opening - Saturday, June 4th

    Hope you had an amazing week! Please join me this Saturday June 4 at Honfleur Gallery in Washington D.C. for the opening of my most recent exhibition, Hear/Here. The exhibition features Daphne Arthur (NYC), Fire Angelou and Andrew Keiper (Baltimore) and Omolara Williams McCallister (DC) exploring the needed dialogue within and between urban centers in the U.S. that constantly grapple with issues of displacement, violence and calls for social justice. We are examining the points of intersection as well as disconnection among the various groups vying for social and political agency in an ever evolving society. June 4th to July 16th

    Artists creativity is notably sourced by free spiritedness, risk taking and a lack of boundaries, but they often find themselves negotiating the laws of physics. A free roaming imagination interacts with force, mass, time and gravity, exerting them to lend shape to objects, fluids and solids.
    Even Gravity Has Its Ups and Downs includes works that range from lighter than air to the massively dense, from seriously grounded to ephemeral. Included artist wrestle with the powers that control the universe and allow them to drip, tug, mash, float and expand.

    Gallery hours Wed-Sat, 12pm to 6pm

  • Go Tell It On A Mountain
    California African American Museum of Art, Los Angeles, California
    OCTOBER 4, 2012- MARCH 31, 2013

    James Baldwin's 1953 visceral autobiographical novel, Go Tell It On The Mountain, explores the dual role of the Christian church in the lives of African Americans. It is at once a vehicle for the control and repression in addition to being a wellspring of inspiration and community.
    The novel also paints an unerring portrayal of racism in the United States and its devastating emotional affects. This exhibition of the same title finds its anchor in Baldwin's book, and attempts to explore how some artists have mined these oppositional forces found in the Christian church to foster political action and civic engagement. Artists included in the exhibition are Edgar Arceneaux, Daphne Arthur, Andrea Bowers, Carolyn Castaño, Robert Colescott, Mark Greenfield, Zeal Harris, Caroline Kent, Nery Gabriel Lemus, Kerry James Marshall, John Outterbridge, Nikki Pressley, Erika Rothenberg, Sanjit Sethi, and Nate Young, among others.
