According to Michelle Black Smith, “Troubled by the increasing homelessness seen on the streets of D.C. in the 70s and 80s due to shrinking mental health resources, and growing populations of war veterans and the unemployed, Georgette turned to her artwork to express her sympathy and outrage.”at-the-feet-of-a-master-what-georgette-seabrooke-powell-taught-me-about-art-activism-and-the-creative-sisterhood “Powell considers art to be healing—from her murals in New York City hospitals to her work as an art therapist at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Washington, DC.” https://anacostia.si.edu/Exhibitions/Details/Art-Changes-Things-The-Art-and-Activism-of-Georgette-Seabrooke-Powell-1299 In her words: community was “a flexible and encompassing term that defines relationships with family, friends, fellow artist, neighbors . . .” https://cdi.anacostia.si.edu/2016/09/05/in-the-spirit-of-community-georgette-seabrooke-powell/ We celebrate Georgette Seabrooke Powell and all art educators and art therapists today!

  • Luce Turnier

    Turnier is a Haitian artist who along with other artists affiliated with the Le Centre d’Arts in Haiti, including Albert Mangones, Gerald Bloncourt, Maurice Borno, Rigaud Benoit, Hector Hyppolite, Daniel Lafontant, formed the nexus of the Haitian Art Movement. The period between 1946 and 1950, encompassing the early years of Turnier's artistic work, is also called "The Haitian Renaissance."Unfortunately, during the age of McCarthyism in the 1940s-50s many works by Haiti’s modernist artists was labelled as communist. Benson, LeGrace (1996). "Three Presentations of the Arts of Haiti (A Review Article)". She was one of the few women founders of the Centre d’Art in Haiti. Turnier painted abstract market scenes and other works depicting common people and the complexities of gender, class and colorism in Haiti. "Introduction: Art as Caribbean Feminist Practice". Small Axe: A Caribbean Journal of Criticism. According to www.francielatour.com, Haitian artists were seen as simple and primitive, unaware of any broader art world context. These artists were also overwhelmingly male. As a woman, and as an artist whose work spoke to modernism, Luce never won the same recognition or success as other Centre d'Art painters. https://www.francielatour.com/more-about-luce-turnier She expressed a preference for painting people when in Haiti and landscapes when in France. She also worked with collages. She lived and studied in France and New York. In her own words, when asked about who and where her inspiration comes from. “ I don’t have any concept or philosophy, it’s just instinct…I work with my eyes and my feelings…in my work texture is very important to me. I play with texture.” #dopeart #womenofillustration #blackartistspace #blackwoman #dopeblackart #procreateart #blackart365 #haitiangirl #illustrationoftheday #blackartist #artfido #artdaily #timelapseart #artfeature #coolart #afroart #blackmen #illustratorsoninstagram #blackartists #procreatedrawing #igart #artspotlight #speedpaint #blackartwork #supportblackart #illustrationart #blackartmatters #illustrationartists #ipadprocreate #igartist *I do not own rights to this music*

  • About | Blackishartbox | Creator of art box | Art history

    WHO ARE WE ​ BlackishArt is a platform where black artists take their rightful place in history and Art History. BlackishArt Box was born from a homeschool mom's desire to share with her homeschool Art Class (Transformed Art) the contributions of Black and Brown artists to Art History. ​ Representation matters. That phrase resonated with our founder so much that she created an entire curriculum focused on Black and Brown artists from the significant art periods to the present. Students learned about art periods, art styles, and art techniques that developed their skills as artists. ​ BlackishArt Box is a monthly subscription service specifically focused on underrepresented and marginalized Black and Brown artists. Each month will showcase a Black or Brown artist and their contributions to art and humanity. Each box will have a detailed bio of the artist and an art activity to educate the subscriber even further. The result of each experience will be a masterpiece! ​ Each month you'll receive art supplies, an inspirational piece of art. As mentioned, the box will reference the featured artist and examples of their work. You will also receive a link with an instructional video and links for further exploration. We ship to the continental United States. We encourage you to share your art with us, and we'd love to feature your art. Please submit your work to blackishart1804@gmail.com or tag us with #blackishartbox or @blackishart1804. ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ Giliane St-Amand Green- mom, creative, artist and founder of BlackishArt President, Pour Etre Joli Events, Inc.
