Painting I Class Paintings for African Presence 2019

Students in the Painting I class created black and white paintings that reflected what Black History Month meant to them as part of the African Presence 2019 Opening Reception on February 8, 2019. Kandy Lopez-Moreno, M.F.A., faculty in the Department of Performing and Visual Arts (DPVA) in NSU’s College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (CAHSS) is the professor for that class. The theme of African Presence 2019 is, “Face to Face: Art through Haitian Eyes.” It features Haitian art, on loan from, and curated by, NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale and will be on display from Feb. 8 through March 3 in the Cotilla Gallery, Alvin Sherman Library.

The participating students in the Painting I class and their paintings included: Gabriel Aikens – “A Simple Cleaning will do,” “Paige Allen –“My People,” Israa Almusallam – “Old Childhood Stuff,” Evan Fleming – “Broken Past, Unknown Future,”  Anais Flores Castro – “Shades of the Past,”  Alex Israel – “Black Words,” Zoe Kais – “Glimpse of Hope,”  Sunny Le – “Distance,” Tracie-Ann Martone – “Jamaica Export History, Madison Mello – “A Step Back into Time,”       Barbara Mendez – “The firsts,” Yallannie Mora – “No more relaxing,” Ariella Erin Poon – “Between the Lines,”  Sheyanne Rodriguez Legette – “All Shades,” and Skylar Stinson – “Deep South.”  The students received certificates from NSU President George Hanbury, and were acknowledged at the reception. Their paintings are on exhibit next to the elevator spine in the Don Taft University Center on the first floor.
