AFROCENTRIC: From the Perspective of Black Women Artists will be on view at Gallery Z in Providence from April 12 through May 5, 2012.

Eighteen New England artists invite you to enter a world you’ve never seen. Historically underrepresented and frequently misrepresented, 18 black women who are artists have created a thoughtful and compelling exhibition. Themes are diverse ranging from loss during Hurricane Katrina to a loving relationship between brothers. On exhibit are paintings, photography, collages, monoprints, stained glass, hand made quilts and mixed media artwork. Drawing inspiration from family, faith, music, dance and community, these artists create a unique relationship between the artwork and the viewer. This focused selection of approximately 40 works highlights Afrocentrism, a unique view of the world.

The exhibition includes three events. The first is the exhibition opening on Thursday, April 19th, Gallery Night from 5-9 PM presenting artwork created by African American women artists. The second event on Saturday, April 21st from 9- 11 AM at RISD Multicultural Center, is a Story Quilt Workshop for middle and high school students led by Simone Spruce Torres, a Rhode Island artist. The third event will be on Thursday, April 26th* at 5:30pm, a lecture on African American Women Artists of the 20th and 21st centuries delivered by Lisa Farrington, PhD, Chair, Art and Music Department at John Jay College, CUNY. Dr. Farrington is author of 11 books including the seminal work on black women artists, Creating Their Own Image: The History of African American Women Artists published in 2005, the first scholarly work to explore the history of black women artists.
