I am a conceptual mixed media artist, addressing issues of colorism and race in my works. I seek to break stereotypes and address issues related to my life. My artwork is steeped in oral history and expresses the narrative of those whose stories have not yet been fully told. As a storyteller, I impart conceptualized stories about the “other” in society. I view myself as a vehicle for ancestral stories to transcend history and remain part of the historical record. The canvas of my artwork is fabric, which I age and imbue with conceptualized images of a forgotten part of the American story. Using images and text, I embed the cloth with the hopes and visions of my ancestors, particularly those whose stories that have remained invisible. Whether woven or stitched, every time my weft crosses the warp or my needle pierces the cloth, I reach through another layer of scorched earth that slavery has left behind and work to reframe critical issues of race.

MSU students in Museum Studies and the Art History Student Association have been working since November to prepare the first exhibition in the new Broad Art Lab across the street from the Broad Art Museum. Twelve students helped to chose pieces from the museum’s collection, wrote labels and worked on the installation. Their efforts are coordinated by Art History faculty members Susan J. Bandes (also Museum Studies) and Jon Frey and a team from the Broad Art Museum. The is a wonderful opportunity for the community to become acquainted/reacquainted with significant museum holdings and is the first of the collection exhibitions that are envisioned for this new space.

DRAWN TO PRINT
A national juried exhibition of drawning and printmaking and everything inbetween.
July 27 – August 31, 2018
Reception July 27, 6-8PM
This exhibition is the result of a national call and features works on paper that explore the ways in which the diverse and inclusive mediums of drawing and printmaking converge and are completely separate.
The path followed by a brayer can begin with a pencil, a mouse, a cut, or a maybe a stencil. There is no limit to the ideas that can be explored through drawing or printmaking. The presence of the artist in these processes can be at the forefront or separated by many layers of information. Surfaces can be additive or subtractive. Lines and forms can be ink, paint, graphite, thread, a cut or a tear. The work in this exhibition meets with the act of one material being pulled across the surface of another.
This exhibition features work from:
