Jamea Richmond-Edwards to Exhibit at The Southern
The Southern is delighted to announce Take Me Away, a solo exhibition of new works by Jamea Richmond-Edwards.
In Take Me Away Richmond-Edwards presents a series of paintings featuring black women in moments of silent contemplation. The series, rooted in escapism, was created in response to the year’s heated social and political climate faced by black Americans. “As African Americans, I believe it is essential for us to “check-out” of social media and the evening news to preserve our sanity,” expresses the artist. In this body of work, color and texture is employed to explore notions of trauma and self-preservation through escapism and meditation.
Opening Friday, September 23 from 7 – 9pm.
