Please help support this event! I will be one of the 9 writers contributing to the book! 🙂
The Mighty 9 concept came from what the number 9 represents which is inspiration & perfection of ideas & as female literary artists that concept rings true.
Collaboration: African Diaspora Exhibition
The exhibition that unifies people through their artistic spirit
collaboration: (n) the act of working jointly.
Collaboration started as a showcase of artists, presented in homes, businesses and other alternative spaces allowing artwork to be viewed by clients in a realistic or unusual environment. It allows the artists to intermingle with buyers one on one and develop a personal relationship with the public at large
The concept of visual artists of diverse spirits working together to spread art appreciation in the community was the brain child of husband and wife artist team Anthony Burks Sr. and Trina Slade-Burks of A.T.B. Fine Artists & Designers LLC. along with jewelry artist and educator Lea Jefferson and fiber artist and consultant Barbara Cheives. It is an opportunity for art collectors and professionals to experience great art in inhabitable space and feel at home doing so.
A.T.B. in partnership with The Armory Art Center is hosting a Harlem Renaissance-style art exhibition showcasing 20+ visual & 9 literary artists of African Diaspora.
