Community Artists' Collective presents Jo El Mercer: "Perspective, Pivot and Change" opening reception
“Perspective, Pivot and Change,” a solo show by Jo El Mercer, is about diversity and magnifying it on a personal level. The show was born out of Mercer's love of Motown and the change and pivot and different type of thinking that this music evoked. She's incorporating cartoons in her abstract expressionism, taking inspiration from from under-appreciated female African American artists like Alma Thomas, Betty Blayton-Taylor and Mildred Thompson.
Mercer will be interviewed for “Meet the Artists at The Collective,” a new series initiated by Dr. Michon Benson.
The exhibition will be on display through November 28.
