 Sisters in Spirit Exhibition




An exhibition of work by 11 visual artists who best represent what it means to be a Black woman in Britain today. Whether choosing paint, collage, mosaic or textiles a fresh crop of Black British artists are making waves in a field where, for so long, Black women were underrepresented.


Curated by Clem Richards of Alexandra Galleries, Sisters in Spirit examines the central themes of their artistic explorations such as the unity of the family, relationships, the Black British experience and identity.


Often having to balance numerous careers to support themselves and their families, these artists bring a wealth of artistic experience to their work. Several of them are also active in bringing art to the community and using it as a tool of awareness.

Sisters in Spirit showcase the works of Soheila Keyani, Paulette Robinson, Melanie "Shay" LaRocque, Michaela Lavine Lewin, Lorna Graham, Carol John, Munirah Olton, Dionne Ible, Jennifer Lewis, Carol Ann Edwards (Cezanne) and Mary Osinibi (Mary O) for this landmark exhibition at The Original Gallery, which forms part of London Borough of Haringey 2010 Black History Month celebrations. Sisters in Spirit, 1 31 October 2010.

There will be an opportunity to meet the artists at the Original Gallery on Thursday 21 October 2010, 7 9pm, at Sister Talk, an evening of art, poetry and spoken word.
