What a beautiful Saturday evening it was for the curated La Femme Mystique, A Tribute to Women's History Month exhibition, at The Vivant Art Collection in Philadelphia's gallery row!

The Special Artist Reception was yesterday! I truly enjoyed meeting and talking to the many wonderful artists and guests who attended. I also equally enjoyed the artist talk featuring all of the outstanding women artists in the show!

Among the guests at the show: Pamela Brown and Beverly Dawson owners of the nationally known African American gallery, Art Jazz and Barbara Whiteman, Director of the famous Philadelphia Doll Museum.

The evening was filled with wonderful music, food, and lively discussion about African American women and their artwork.

The art in this show reflects my personal journey as African American artist. In particular my observation, exploration and daily reflection on metaphysics, spirituality, race relations, gender, and African American folk traditions and how these factors influence the views of society.

The show is currently showing through March 30th. For more information contact the gallery at 215.922.6584
