The Artists of Colour: Abstracted Realities

January 27, 2023 @ 6:00 pm February 19, 2023 @ 8:00 pm EST

The Artists of Colour: Abstracted Realities

Description: Participating artists include Edward Milo Johnson, Lois Smith Larkin, Connie Lee-Turner, Dennis K. Smith, Manzella V. Vincent, Lana E. Talbot, Nicole A. Talbot, James Walls, and Susan Johnson-Washington. The voices of Black artists reverberate through history from ancient times. They cannot be ignored. No longer absent from historical records, they continue to speak independently through media of visual art, music, and literature. The process of selective filtering has been practiced in art throughout history and has rendered the Black artist as invisible. The fact that works of notable Black artists of the past have been excluded from mainstream art galleries for centuries highlights a form of abstraction. Our collective voices must be raised in protest. Today the works of many eminent Black artists are recognized as historically significant contributions and have taken their place beside other influential artists. The works in this exhibit are the narratives of The Artists of Colour.

Date: On display through February 19th

Time: Please visit for hours of operation.

Location: Art Windsor Essex, 401 Riverside Drive West, Windsor
