Bobby Fouther/Curator - Mixed Media Mufu Ahmed - Sculptures and Quilts Blaque Butterfly - Spoken Word Ruth Gourdine - Paintings Eldon Jones III - Paintings Chris McMury - Paintings and Photographs Saan Patterson - Paintings Alice Price - Paintings Jamaali Roberts - Collage Hobbs Waters - Paintings Curator's Statement 'When I first thought about creating this exhibit, I wanted to show a breath of artwork from the diaspora. As I turned it to my artistic family, I began to realize that we functioned much like a Village. And so I chose to treat each member as an artistic force for the whole. Through this lens I was able to cross genders, ages, styles, aesthetics and content. In the essence, this has created the Village voice that you will experience in viewing and hearing Ancestral Connections. While the artists in this exhibit were born and raised in different locations, different households, on different continents, you will see a theme of the need to take one's personal experiences and create visual interpretations. It's this internalization and processing that I recognized in this group of friends as well as many others to created our artistic Family. As in any family, the group contains mentors, students, parents, elders, and many more who function as extended resources for belonging. I hope the viewer will take in and experience the sense of joining in on these familial excursions. I hope you see how we have shared our inner experiences to create this Village. I hope you hear how we have shared our stories to create our sense of family."- Bobby Fouther / Curator 2019-10-01 09:00:00.0 2019-10-01 21:30:00.0 0 0 0

As I turned it to my artistic family, I began to realize that we functioned much like a Village. And so I chose to treat each member as an artistic force for the whole. Through this lens I was able to cross genders, ages, styles, aesthetics and content. In the essence, this has created the Village voice that you will experience in viewing and hearing Ancestral Connections. While the artists in this exhibit were born and raised in different locations, different households, on different continents, you will see a theme of the need to take one's personal experiences and create visual interpretations. It's this internalization and processing that I recognized in this group of friends as well as many others to created our artistic Family. As in any family, the group contains mentors, students, parents, elders, and many more who function as extended resources for belonging. I hope the viewer will take in and experience the sense of joining in on these familial excursions. I hope you see how we have shared our inner experiences to create this Village. I hope you hear how we have shared our stories to create our sense of family."- Bobby Fouther / Curator 2019-10-12 09:00:00.0 2019-10-12 17:00:00.0 0 0 0

As I turned it to my artistic family, I began to realize that we functioned much like a Village. And so I chose to treat each member as an artistic force for the whole. Through this lens I was able to cross genders, ages, styles, aesthetics and content. In the essence, this has created the Village voice that you will experience in viewing and hearing Ancestral Connections. While the artists in this exhibit were born and raised in different locations, different households, on different continents, you will see a theme of the need to take one's personal experiences and create visual interpretations. It's this internalization and processing that I recognized in this group of friends as well as many others to created our artistic Family. As in any family, the group contains mentors, students, parents, elders, and many more who function as extended resources for belonging. I hope the viewer will take in and experience the sense of joining in on these familial excursions. I hope you see how we have shared our inner experiences to create this Village. I hope you hear how we have shared our stories to create our sense of family."- Bobby Fouther / Curator 2019-10-23 09:00:00.0 2019-10-23 21:30:00.0 0 0 0
