Barbara Earl Thomas’ Story Vessels, works in glass
We are being called upon to do more than witness and document the confusion.
Our environmental, social, and political challenges cross all lines and they require us to write a new story

Bisa Butler’s spectacular textile portraits are a revelation, seducing the eye with colors and patterns while commenting wryly on episodes from twentieth-century black life.

“Beauty is what has always captured the viewer’s attention and allows them to spend time with my work. Once involved, it is easier for them to read the content held just below the surface.”
“Only by confronting head-on what is possible can you stay true to your mission, hopes, and dreams. When you step away from the linear path, my work dissolves into dots of color and flashes of brilliant crystal. This glittery, shadowy world is not clear and precise; conceptually it is a metaphor for losing your way, wandering afield from your chosen direction. I want the viewer to experience my work, to address what is possible and take it on full-force and straight away.”
