BAIA BEST OF: Self-taught versus education Posted by Karien Zachery

Hello everyone,

My name is Karien Zachery and I'm a self-taught multi-medium artist living in Gardena, CA. One thing I've encountered in the world of professional art is: the difference between the way natural artists are treated versus educated artists. We constantly hear that art..like beauty...is subjective and really can't be taught or judged. Yet our society is overflowing with beauty contests and cosmetic comparisons. In the same way, there is an established…

The digital art that I have loved so far is that of some of my photographer friends who use great creativity and skill in enhancing their images into exciting and beautiful works of art. Then, there are those that invariably look like they were done on the…

BAIA BEST OF: To be a "Black" Artist or not? Posted by Kanika Marshall

There is great disagreement among Black artists in Sacramento. We are trying to work more cohesively to be more effective at reaching out to the diverse community in the Capitol of California. But we seem to be stuck on whether "Black" should be in title of what we call ourselves. This my sound like a trivial point but some of feel strongly that "Black art" is what the whole thing is about! To cherish and esteem and proclaim our Black pride to the world.…
