Sorrowful 16 by Juliette Hemingway

Rhapsody is an effusively enthusiastic or ecstatic expression of feeling. This show highlights four African-America Artist who exhibit those traits. Rhapsody explores four artist journey of expression.

Juliette's work is indicative of a path that has been traveled to wellness and healing. There is not only the theme of music, but also the blue people who are ever present in her work. The blue people represent the acknowledgment of Autism as part of her life. Javari, her only child, is autistic and it has had an enormous impact on their lives. So therefore, it is the same in her art.

Thomas is able to capture even the most fleeting thoughts and visions that briefly occupy his mind. Inspiration comes from all around him - from music and nature, to current events and the Word of God.

Christine thinks that we just need to slow down enough to recognize colors. Pocket the devices, unplug, and experience the daily sights with our senses attuned. Subtle colors that can’t be seen in a quick glance, color-shifts that won’t be captured with a tap of the phone, complements and contrasts; all of these contribute to the beauty that is easily overlooked in our hurried rushing while trying to ‘record’ everything.

Dwayne specializes in combining traditional art techniques with modern digital art tools. He works with both traditional and digital media but he prefers to be on the leading edge of the constantly evolving profession by embracing the latest art tools and technology.
