PHIL FREELON PHOTOGRAPHS

The International Review of African American Art Plus
Takes “A Closer Look With Phil Freelon”
All the wooden boats are docked
to start the day. Men and boys work
their fingers through the fine green netting
so fast the camera catches only lime blur.
The women watch—babies crooked
in hip creases—studying the way these men,
their men will provide. This is happy hour
in Accra, where no one makes a three-minute
pitch or pushes cardboard in your hand.
This poem was inspired by a photograph of the same name taken by Phil Freelon, whose exhibition, “Structure”, is at the Craven Arts Gallery in Durham until June 15th.

TOM KREGEL: A LIFE’S WORK IN THREE DIMENSIONS
CHAD HUGHES: LIGHT PLAY
The gallery is proud to present a retrospective of visionary artist Tom Kregel (1938-2002). Kregel’s astounding original sculptures and beautifully detailed drawings suggest narratives ranging from poetic melancholy to funky humor.
Also featured is Chad Hughes, a master of realistic painting and a former Kregel colleague.
“The Female Gaze: Women Artists Making Their World” opens at The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art with a book launch and exhibition on November 17th that will celebrate and honor Linda Lee Alter’s Collection of Art by Women, a collection of about 500 works of art that she recently donated to PAFA. The exhibition and book are called “The Female Gaze: Women Artists Making Their World”.
Work by Beverly McIver is included in the exhibit.
The exhibit will be on view through April 7, 2013 – a good long run. The entire PAFA community has been enriched – faculty, students, museum audience, museum staff – by Lee’s extraordinary gift.

Artists’ mind-media meld opens at Craven Allen Gallery
MJ SHARP has uploaded her long exposure photograph that she took during her January 17th talk and demonstration. This photo is very interesting as are MJ’s notes on the piece. It’s like a mystery revealed!
