Community Artists' Collective presents Redefining Print: Contemporary Prints from Women of The African Diaspora opening reception
Redefining Print: Contemporary Prints from Women of The African Diaspora is a new exhibition at the Community Artists’ Collective (The Collective) that will challenge traditional printmaking and explore unconventional printmaking methods. The exhibit featuring eight diverse printmakers will highlight two and three dimensional works, as well as installation. The works will examine identity, race, gender and social issues affecting women of the African diaspora in the 21st century.
Exhibiting artists include The ROUX Collective from Houston: Rabéa Ballin, Ann “Sole Sister” Johnson, Delita Martin and Lovie Olivia, three artists from Knoxville, Tennessee: Jessica Gatlin, Abligail Lucien, Althea Murphy-Price, and Sukenya Best from Richmond, Virginia.
The exhibition will be held as a part of PrintHouston 2015. Celebrating its 5th year, PrintHouston is a city wide, exhibition and celebration of original prints, the artists who create them and the people who collect them.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through August 28.
