SKIN DEEP – This exhibit which began its run at The Loft at Liz’s was later transitioned to The Lucy Florence Cultural Center, opening Monday January 17, 2011 in celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. This show explores the relationship between Blacks and Whites; Bringing the voices of both races to dialog is a path to understanding. The artists, Monique Birault, Zeal Harris, TedMeyer, Jackie Nach, Miles Regis, Franceska Schifrin, Garth Trinidad, and Richard Turner reveal their voice through their works. The photos below were taken at the opening reception for Skin Deep…
Did you notice that most of the food incorporated the two colors: Black and White? In a sign of unity and joy we created foods with those two primary colors. We hope you enjoyed the culinary creations experienced during the opening reception.
The Appetizers and Desserts were provided by the Artists of Skin Deep. The menu also featured: Marinated Sliced Lotus Root Sprinkled with Black and White Sesame Seeds, Sliced Cucumber, Feta and Olive Tapenade Platter, Mixed Green Salad from Liz’s Garden and we extend a special THANK YOU to Eatalian Cafe for providing Rigatoni with Porcini Cream Sauce. Also big thanks to FREY Vineyards, and Magnanimous Wines for providing a wonderful selection of varietals. Keeping the music happening throughout the night were Anne Montone-Denson and DJ Pelau!

Exhibition Dates: October 23rd 2010 through January 11th 2011
Artists In Conversation Part II: Thursday, December 16th 7 to 10pm
Through her drawings and paintings, Zeal Harris avoids making art about racism, yet her micro-narratives offer socio-political commentary about a range of related issues. The warmth Ted Meyer expresses in his paintings, suggests a simple solution to racial conflict through interracial relationships. South African born painter/printmaker Jackie Nach integrates the soil of the land of apartheid into her mixed media paintings. The poignant paintings of Miles Regis will shed light on our equality. The Human Expressionistic paintings of Franceska Schifrin strive for the truth, not for the facts. Before his flourishing career as a radio personality, Garth Trinidad was a student at the prestigious Otis College of Art and Design. After a ten-year hiatus from art, he makes his debut with a painting expressly created for Skin Deep. Richard Turner’s paintings say “Take Responsibility”. Jewelry designer Monique Birault exemplifies harmony through juxtapositions between the two colors in her pieces made exclusively for Skin Deep.
