Black in America

I find it depressing, and emotionally limiting to constantly, be reminded or remind myself of the past regarding slavery and how black people were used and abused, (I being still black and America) am reminded daily of how much blacks are not liked in subtle ways sometime not so subtle.

Art, (My Art) is something that is my own!, I own it, I don't have to pay anyone for it, I have total control over it, it is my way of escaping the ugly truths of human indecency, of one…

BAIA BEST OF: "Is Digital Art 'Cheating'?" by Georgette Jones

Fine art is defined as art that is made solely for the satisfaction of the artist, rather than for commercial purposes. Based on this definition, digital art certainly is in the category of fine art.

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.…

The (Slow but Steady) Integration of the Art World


As many people are aware, the world is not entirely fair to artists, and it is even less so to artists who are African-American. Relatively few art galleries and museums in the United States show the work of African-American artists, creating a problem of invisibility that suggests black artists and their work do not exist.

Some galleries have opened their doors to nonwhite artists, but only a little. "I've heard gallery owners say, 'He's my black artist,' as though…

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…
