Grady Alexis Gallery at El Taller Latino Americano is pleased to present “Uninterrupted”, a retrospective of Artworks created by native New Yorker, artist, art educator, poet and story-teller, Aleathia Brown.
This retrospective marks five decades of Aleathia making ART! Works in the exhibition include: paintings, mix-media and performance art. Exhibition programming includes two events, an Adult StressMelt session, on Friday, February 28th and the film screening, UNTITLED: Docu-Story on Sunday, March 1st.
During the Adult StressMelt session, on Februrary 28th, from 4-7pm, Aleathia will lead participants through coloring and conversation to help adults relax. The film, UNTITLED: Docu-Story, provides an unflinching view into Aleathia’s journey as an artist.
The exhibition opened with an “Art Wedding”, a formal ceremony in which Aleathia publicy married her art. The “Art Wedding” which live-streamed on Jan 25, 2020 highlighted Aleathia’s steadfast and serious commitment to her art and high spirituality. The ceremony was officiated by Minister Cherish Malaran. Past and current students adorned in painted painter aprons served as the maid and maiden of honor.
Aleathia’s bold use of texture and color and the themes of social justice, culture and gender are hallmarks of this exhibition.
