Sun 5/17 @ 7PM
Framed Gallery on Waterloo, which specializes in art work by African-American artists from across the country and even some international artists, is closed for now, although you can see the work of its artists on its website or its Facebook page.
One of those artists is Florida-based Tiffani Glenn. Her brightly colored, often subtly humorous, highly stylized acrylic paintings, which featured an astonishing range of black women and girls in various pursuits draw from cartoon imagery, graphic design and fashion design to depict an astonishing range of black women and girls in various pursuits — painting, dancing, singing, getting dressed for a night on the town, hanging out with a friend. She says in her artist statement that “her primary focus is to portray her subjects as empowered and self-accepting. Tiffani firmly believes in inspiring women to be proud of who they are and embracing the things that make them different.”
You can hear directly from Tiffani (after checking out her work at Framed Gallery’s website) in a live artist talk on Sunday May 17 at 7pm. Go to @framedgallery_ or @artbytiffanig on Instagram to join the event.
