Homeward Bound

I'm heading home to Chicago this weekend to give an Artist Talk "AWay Home" at the historic South Side Community Art Center in the Bronzeville section of Chicago. I have many fond memories of the Center from my High School days when I had art classes there, exhibited and met some wonderful artists that had a huge influence on my life as an artist. Many notable artists were affiliated with the Center including Margaret Burroughs, founder of the DuSable Museum, Charles White, Eldzier Cortor and Elizabeth Catlett to name a few.

I have two mixed media prints at Pyramid Atlantic Art Center, 8230 Georgia Avenue, Silver Spring MD in a group exhibition along with other Corcoran School of Arts and Design students. The exhibition is on view from Sunday, February 15 through Saturday, February 28, 2015. My two mixed media prints utilize both traditional monoprint techniques with digital printing combined with collage. Both original abstract prints are from my Migration Series that references my parents migration from Georgia to Chicago in the 50s.

I brought this sculpture into class for critique. I deconstructed an HP laser printer box. I decided in its creation to mostly tear the cardboard. I like the ragged torn edges. This box was unique in that it had a whitish gray printed exterior layer that contrasted nicely with the warm brown color of other layers. Of course the corrugated layer added an excitement.
