Chromotherapy Reception

November 11, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Last night I attended the reception for the Chromotheraby art exhibit containing the work of over thirty artists curated by Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) graduating student, Prenisha Reid.

Prenisha, "Pre" did a fantastic job of selecting and setting up the exhibit. There was a constant flow of visitors and many talks over the works. Below is the copy from the reception brochure and some images I made during my visit. If you get a chance to visit the Foster-Tanner Gallery on the FAMU campus by December 2, 2016, do stop by and view the Chromotherapy exhibit, you will not be disappointed. The color is beautiful, the content is fresh, and the exhibit is nicely laid out. Parking may be a problem, so be prepared to do some walking, but there are spaces if you look for them.

From the brochure:

"The Chromotherapy art exhibit has been curated by Prenisha Reid as a culminating educational project for her undergraduate degree in Fine Arts from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University. She is especially interested in color theory and its significance in the aesthetic experience. The Foster-Tanner Fine Arts Gallery and the Council on Culture & Arts have both assisted in the development of this exhibition.

"Prenisha Reid is interested in pursuing a career in both museums and galleries as curator. During her time at FAMU, she has interned at the Council on Culture and Arts and the Foster-Tanner Fine Arts Gallery, which have given her the foundation for her career path. Also as a member of C.A.P. (Collaborative Arts Project) and Alien Astronauts, she plans on continuing to engage with the art community both locally and internationally.

"Special thanks to the jurors of Chromotherapy, Amanda Karioth Thompson, Professor Pamela Bowens-Saffo and Dr. Audra Pittman."

My work, "Passage," was selected by the jurors for inclusion in the show.
