Aminah at 75: The Continuing Story
The show is up until March 22, 2015. I had a very interesting talk with
Chet Domitz, art consultant, today at the gallery. He is a wealth of knowledge regarding Aminah and her work. Hands are an integral part of her work which she believes are the window into the soul of a person, more than the eyes.
I find this so very interesting, as I too have always been able to understand a person by observing their hands.
Aminah is preserving the history of her neighborhood for generations to come. It has been said that you can't know where you are going if you don't know from where you came. Roots keep us grounded. Roots give us a sense of direction and belonging. We must never forget our past, and all the injustices that came before us. Story tellers are a vital part of society whether through the pen or the brush.
I am also looking forward to an opening at Art Access Gallery on March 6, 2015. This is a collaboration with the Goodwill Studio and Gallery.
The residents of Bexley are very fortunate to have several galleries in the community that provide such wonderful access to original art.
