It has been sooooooo long since I have posted anything and I have been quite busy. I am very blessed to have co-curated and been a part of this great show. Please take a look at the link and also make your way to the museum if you can.

Great American Artists - Part III: The Seeds
September 6, 2012 - January 6, 2013Great American Artists is an exhibition of new figurative works by artists Christopher Batten, Endia Beal, Halima Cassells, Alonzo Edwards, Sydney James, Gregory Johnson, Richard Lewis, Mario Moore, Sabrina Nelson and Senghor Reid. Through a series of studio visits, collaborative meetings and documentation, these artists developed a consortium with two major goals in mind: to increase collaboration among artists in Detroit and to strengthen the network of artists who employ similar themes in their work. Divided into a three-part series, subtitled Roots, Branches, and Seeds, this year-long exhibition represents the generational structure of the group and the development of the artists.
Exhibiting third are Endia Beal, Sydney G. James, and Mario Moore, who form the “Seeds” of the group. They have used inspiration derived from The Roots and Branches to create works that address the social issues of today. All three hope that their work will resonate on a personal level with their viewers.
