ART214: Latino Cultural Center Opening was Great!

This is the best experience that I could ever have had as a fabric artist! The ART214 @ The Latino Cultural Center is Museum worthy! It is divided into two galleries and feels like JOY!
Big SHOUTOUT TO Andrea T. who met me at the door with friendship and excitement for my work. Her opening is April 28th. Guess where I’ll be on April 28!
Great conversations about my little piece! Why do people think I’m a woman artist? Had some crying and holding of the throat. Had some anger and even some new friends and invitations to speak about making memories.
I’m about as pleased as I’ve ever been! God is good.

ART214 Artist Reception: Latino Cultural Center 4/12. 6-8pm Mardis!

This week I invite YOU to join me and my Iron Tapestry, “He Spit His Chew On My New Dress” at The Latino Cultural Center (downtown Dallas) for ART214. This is another exhibition in this Citywide juried art exhibition. The artist reception is Thursday from 6-8pm.

This new genre uses an iron frame and a girl’s dress to tell a story of a racist action, family dynamics, a Father’s pride and a Mother/Wife’s dilemma in 1940’s Texas.

The event is 6-8pm but get there and see what your boy is working with. I’ll have 5 copies of my anthology, “KenteCloth: Southwest Voices of the African Diaspora” for the first 5 folks who greet me at my piece.
