  • Beautiful exhibit! And beautiful words to pair with it. Let's hear from the artists.

  • R.D.Brown -- "My purpose is to use the history of my childhood, the strengths and limitations of our city and the life I see around me, to connect the generations and to ultimately create a family dynamic."

  • "When I create art I set the table for us to sit, as a family and indulge in connectedness, identity and hope. My art is like a loaf of bread we can eat from, when people eat this bread we become a family."

  • "When I look around I see that my city is declining. My solution to this concern is to communicate a sense of connectedness to the next generation. We are connected through family, relationship and hope. "

  • "I use art as a medium to go deep into the conscious and inspire people. I convey this message through combining wood, scrapes, yoga mats, old television parts, dried tree limbs, canvas wood and many other various pieces. "

  • "I find these parts and pieces like finding old family members and create mixed media pieces. My art is used to connect with the family of mankind. The body of work investigates man’s ability to comfort one another and the contemplation of that reality at all the stages of development. "

  • Donte Woods-Spikes --- "Throughout life most boys are taught not to feel, but are expected to understand emotions."

  • "As these boys become men, the silent screams and pain from never feeling compassion or seeing concern for their wellbeing lies dormant inside then until something triggers an explosion. "

  • "That explosion from men are the tears never cried every time he was hurt. I use my voice to ask "Whats wrong?" to the boy inside of every man that's crying."

  • Nehemiah Payne--"My vision is to see children grow up successful. Not only do they grow up but in growing they have a sense of purpose."

  • "My dream is to see children understand the power of choice so they know it is possible to swim against the tide."

  • "My desire is to provide children with shelter from the elements outside of their control; to foster the destiny in the next generation."

  • Thank you R.D. Brown (pictured left), Donte, Nehemiah, Malik and Kat for sharing your talent and love. XOXO S.
