Friday, December 5th at Space 7:10 of Kefa Cafe in Silver Spring, MD, was filled with much pomp and circumstance! The Double Visions Exhibition reception featuring myself and my twin sister Sharon J. Burton of Gemini Visions Studio was highly successful. I debuted the "Sassy Girls" collection along with the mixed media dolls on canvas during the exhibition. Bassey Ikpi, renowned Def Poetry Jam Poet, performed several selections and was super fantastic! The crowd, including members of the Prince George's Artist's Association (PGAA) was enthusiastically warm during a somewhat chilly December evening. Both Sharon and I provided an artist talk which featured our inspirations for the work shown.
All in all it was a wonderful evening and I would personally like to thank ALL of those who showed up and participated.
If you have not had a chance to stop by Space 7:10 at Kefa Cafe to see the exhibition, it is not too late. Our work will be shown there through January 3, 2009. The cafe is located at 963 Bonifant Street in downtown Silver Spring, Maryland.
I am an emerging self taught doll artist who is learning how to improve my craft. I started doll making 3 years ago and stopped due to entrepreneurial pursuits. Now with the help of my mentor Francine Haskins, I am beginning the craft again with much more vigor and interest. Please share this journey with me.
