BHM Art and Music Reception

Join us on Saturday, Feb. 16th for a reception with live music to celebrate our Black History Month art exhibits. (This program was rescheduled due to last week's storm.)

Cathleen McCoy Bristol creates portraits, landscapes and spiritual works in watercolor and acrylic. She has always been fascinated by variations in the human race, which has led her to explore diverse expressions of tradition and to portray the beauty of all peoples. 

She is a former art instructor, has freelanced as a fashion illustrator and painter, and shows her work in local galleries.

Objects, to Ahmondylla Best, tell stories. Gourds, cowrie shells, crystals, sterling  silver, brass, copper, combs and  mirrors are eloquent  in representing narratives of human emotion and the female  experience, and so Best  incorporates these items into  her multi-dimensional artistic practice. She is  a visual  artist  and  musician,  author  and  composer,  storyteller,  performer,  choreographer,  filmmaker,  director and  educator. 

Music will be provided by Cedric Miller and students drum circle.
