Event Description: “Five of Charleston’s most accomplished black artists will showcase their work reflecting on what it means to be part of the African Diaspora. Featured Artists: This exhibition brings together a group of local African American artists, who will examine their artistic practice and personal collections through the lens of their cultural heritage. Featured will be artists James Denmark, Winston Kennedy, Arianne King-Comer, Hampton R. Olfus, Jr. and Addelle Sanders. The artists are presenting works that draw on traditional African visual signs, symbols and images ... The African Diaspora refers to the communities throughout the world that are descended from the historic movement of people from West & Central Africa. The term has been historically applied in particular to the descendants who were enslaved and shipped to the Americas by way of the Atlantic slave trade. According to exhibition artist Winston Kennedy, 'In a visual sense, some of [the exhibition artists] integrate the traditional African visual signs, symbols and images and others are able to weave formal issues of modernism of art creativity into the universal statements in our production of Western modernism. Therefore, our creative works range from: abstract to figurative abstraction; from realism to photorealism; from conceptual to other discrete modes of time and performance art. We reflect and reclaim an internal cultural gumbo – our studio production stretches across many modalities.'” -- Read more: http://picturethishiltonhead.com/sales-and-events-2/

Artist’s Statement: “It is this passion to create that has been the greatest force in my life. My recent work has evolved out of an attempt to realize this greater understanding about myself. I am interested in the discovery of new textural elements and surface treatments. The way I approach my work is usually very spontaneous, in that the works are executed utilizing no preliminary sketches, but allowing the work to evolve as I progress. It is a journey of discovery for me, from inception to completion that is spiritually and emotionally fulfilling.  Creativity is essential to my experience and I must continually evolve if I am to find harmony with myself and my creator.”Read more: http://www.rupertpiggott.com/artistbio.html

Smack Mellon's mission is to nurture and support emerging, under-recognized mid-career and women artists in the creation and exhibition of new work, by providing exhibition opportunities, studio workspace, and access to equipment and technical assistance for the realization of ambitious projects. We see ourselves as a vehicle whereby under-represented artists can create, explore and exhibit their creative ideas outside the concerns of the commercial art world, offering many artists the exposure and recognition they deserve.”Read more: http://smackmellon.org/index.php/information/mission_and_history/
