But I am thankful for…

Mr. Brewer

My heart was truly hurt to hear of Mr. Brewer's passing. I wondered what happened when I called and was unable to make contact with him (granpas art). I always appreciated the fact that he would personally answer his phone and give you what ever information you needed regarding art information, and if he did not know him self, would direct you to who would know.



My sincere prayers for his family (and friends), and I pray the legacy of his studio, store and online service continues.… Continue

Detroit Free Press arts writer Mark Stryker features Carrie Mae Weems, Joyce Owens and Tatyana Fazlalizadeh

How exciting to read this piece last year, and see my name in the same sentence with Carrie Mae Weems. I was terrified and intrigued by a project that would showcase so many artists attacking the same form...at first I turned it down, but Peter Kaplan was persistent. There has been press that simply drops names of artists the Wright Museum provided or well-known names such as Faith Ringgold, Barkley Hendricks, a fellow Yale grad, and Joyce Scott and many others. So the brief inclusion of my…
