I am so pleased to be part of this exciting show!


I appropriated (with permission) Kris Straub's cartoon, "All Houses Matter", a brilliant explanation of why #blacklivesmatter does not negate #alllivesmatter, but is important NOW. I hope my analogy does the whole concept justice.

In 1876 Edward Bannister won first prize at the Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition for his painting Under the Oaks. The judges were going to rescind the award when they found out he was black, but the other artists insisted the award be given. The painting's location is currently unknown. Fortunately, a sketch by Bannister exists. It is based on this that I created my rendition of what the painting might have looked like, using pigments he would have had available, and some of his other paintings. I learned so much, pouring over his marks, his values, his composition.

 

It was a true honor.
