The Black Female Gaze
Feb 01 - Feb 26 2022
Art making requires a process of looking intently at the world and then deciding how to capture it’s reflection. What catches the eye, what centers the focus reveals much about who we are. There is bravery and vulnerability in expressing what holds our gaze and in allowing our deeper selves to be, in turn, gazed upon. Curated as a sister show to The Richmond Art Center’s Art of the African Diaspora, “The Black Female Gaze” presents the visions of four ACCI artist members, rendered in their own chosen mediums. Nyya Lark, Suzane Beaubrun, Xan Blood Walker and Riquelle Small invite you to share their contemplations.
