I created a portrait of “Venerable Henriette Delille” (1813-1862) for a group exhibit at Stella Jones Gallery in New Orleans called "Made Louisiana" (March 1-April 28, 2018). The exhibit celebrates some of the contributions of people of African decent to New Orleans during the city's 2018 celebration of it's 300 year existence, the tricentennial. Henriette Delille was a free woman of color and mixed race during the time of slavery in the US. She founded an order of nuns that is now called the Sisters of the Holy Family and was dedicated to serving the poor. She is now being considered for sainthood by the Catholic Church.
Although I haven't posted in a few months, here are photos from exhibits I participated in during January and February. I was happy to finally exhibit the work I completed and mentioned on my blog here in previous months.
February 2017, Second Story Coop Gallery exhibit called Renew at the New Orleans Healing Center in New Orleans, Louisiana
January 2017, Annual Martin Luther King exhibit with the New Orleans National Conference of Artists at Ashe Cultural Center in New Orleans, Louisiana
I also completed this drawing this month called "Woman Rising". It's an 11"x14" colored pencil drawing.
