2024 Solo ArtQuilt Exhibit at ArtCenter Sarasota

My solo exhibit of a new series of Spirit Portraits opened at the ArtCenter Sarasota on January 25, 2024.  The opening Reception was held on Jan 25th from 6 to 8 p.m. Eastern.

In “Black Women: Music of the Heart & Soul,” I celebrate Black women singers, songwriters, and composers who played groundbreaking roles in the history of many music genres, from opera to country to hip-hop. The art work is grounded in traditional forms of quilt-making but presented through a contemporary lens with color, pattern and content.

Two of the pieces SOLD at the opening reception–and I am truly grateful to the collectors who are supporting my work.  I also appreciate the staff at the ArtCenter who work tirelessly and creatively to promote the artists and events.

My Artist Talk at the ArtCenter is scheduled for February 15, 2024 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Eastern. It is in person only.  However, I will also give a virtual webinar in March 2024 on Spirit Portraits and I will discuss my sources of inspiration, approach to design and use of new and upcycled materials in these works.  Find out more and register for this event HERE.

My goal in this series is to highlight the achievements of lesser known figures such as Caterina Jarboro, an early 20th century opera singer.  She was the first Black opera singer to perform at a major opera house.
