I have three pieces accepted in the juried show “blkART214” at the South Dallas Cultural Center in Dallas, Texas, just up the street from the State Fair Grounds. Shows runs April 9-29, 2017 and features established and emerging Artists of Color from the DFW Metro.
I’m excited to finally be on the Arthello Beck Gallery’s wall! This Cultural Center that I saw being built is turning 30 years old. There are awards and one Artist will be selected for a solo gallery show.
I entered: “Am I Human To You Yet?: The Return of the African Dodger; From The Front Porch; and Sketches of Fatherhood.
The tapestry, “Am I Human To You Yet?: The Return of the African Dodger” was recently returned from a three month show at The Holocaust Museum of Houston.
I’m glad that these three were selected. They are three different pieces featuring: leather burning, thread and yarn couching, poetry/text, image printing on fabric, coinage, wire… and metal work alongside leather and image transferring. “Fatherhood” is from a series of 10 tapestries made from a vintage tablecloth.
