Janice Thacker: Art That Touches Your Heart and Kijana Martin: The Red Life
March 16 through April 27, 2013
3400 S. Fitzhugh Avenue, Dallas, TX 75210
Wichita, Kansas native Thacker paints allegorical images that examine the weighty subject of the state of Black Americans using seemingly “sweet subjects”. In her first one-woman exhibition, Kijana Martin tackles the timely subject of African American women and their growing numbers in the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Using symbolic imagery, Martin explores issues around prevention, stigma and responsibility in her mixed media works.
