There’s a powerful art exhibit showcasing local artists that has just opened in Liberty Square. Titled “UN-SILENCED: Embracing the Black Woman’s Voice,” it’s a month-long showcase that brings greater recognition and acceptance of Black female artists and their creative gifts.
With each brushstroke, the featured artists added their personal styles and techniques to their works. They include Alfrena Moosa, Aptiva Ferguson, Johanne Hampstead Lam, Winsome Bold and Wanda Paulette Harris, who is also the curator for the exhibit. The final result is a series of stunning paintings that detail the history, accomplishments, and the cultural and emotional states of Black women everywhere, told through five unique perspectives.
This is another Art Forever event presented by artist Addonis Parker to support and encourage art, as well as artists, in Liberty City. The first exhibition launched on Juneteenth and was on view for a month.
“UN-SILENCED: Embracing the Black Woman’s Voice” will run to the public freely until October 14 at the Liberty Square Community Center located at 6304 NW 14th Avenue. Exhibition viewing hours are every Monday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you want to schedule a tour or visit, contact curator Wanda Paulette Harris at 786-258-7739.
In addition, a special art panel will be held on opening day, September 16, at 6 to 8 p.m. Enjoy the art, light bites and great conversation about women in art with the fabulous artists!
