Exhibition: “Just A Crown”

My “Child, Please!” Crown

Just A Crown is a new series of 40 original pieces by Jas. Mardis that imagines the various “crowns” worn by African-American Women during the stages and roles of their lifetimes. The series begins with a four stanza poem that declares the emotional, spiritual, physical, dynamic and relational existence displayed in the created works.

This series has multiple elements: Paper-cards, broadsides and cubicle cards; Fabric/Quilted Art in 24″x36″ and in a leather and iron exhibition.
