Gallery Opening at MLK Library

Katie and I grabbed a quick lunch and delivered our the paintings to Caton Merchant yesterday. I haven't seem her new work and I was amazed at how prolific and fantastic it is for someone who works full time. The work will be hung today and I hope to get photos up this week.
It isn't looking good for our opening on Saturday at this point as we have another snow storm in the forecast. If we have to cancel the reception it will be rescheduled for the following Saturday on the 13th, so if you plan to come, stay tuned. I will make the decision by Friday morning.

Last night, Craig and I went to the district to my friend Terry Dixon's opening at the MLK Library.

In celebration of the first day of Black History month, Terry, along with fellow artist Robert Morris, presented work based on Douglas Blackmon's book "Slavery By Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of African Americans from the Civil War to World War II."
The exhibit is designed to highlight the role of major corporations and local government in denying southern blacks their civil rights through the power of judicial and penal systems.

Looks like a great exhibit.

Anxious to see photos of yours in the near future.

I'm glad I ran a feature in last week's All Art Friday. I want to get to MLK to see Terry's show. Wonderful artist.

If your opening is delayed until the 13th I will probably be able to come. The weekend's forecast is 20 inches. I just want spring.

Best to you, Tracey.

I love how the artwork fills the entire space and uses the full height of those really high walls!

Thanks for sharing!
