In celebration of Black History Month, The Community Folk Art Center
the current art exhibit, “Stories My Grandmother Told Me,” featuring New Jersey-based artist Lavett Ballard.
Ballard’s use of imagery reflects social issues affecting the African American experience within a historical context. Her current body of work layers collaged photos, adorned with paint, oil pastels, and metallic foils, on reclaimed, aged wood fences. The fusion of wood and photography offers artwork that explores her southern roots and speaks to themes in her community.
The exhibit opens Jan. 26 and runs through March 20. Please make an appointment online at firstname.lastname@example.org
or you can check out the virtual tour of the exhibit from February 8th: https://cfacgallery.org
