"2016 marks a pivotal point for me as I've spent this year creating more scupltures than collages. Who knows what the future brings but i'm enjoying the fruits of that labor and I hope to share it with you Dec 3rd for the opening of my show Moving Earth: works in clay at The Black Art In America Gallery at 1433 17th Street, Columbus, GA. from 2PM to 7 PM on December 3, 2016 the show runs through January 8, 2017."

Spend the weekend in Columbus as the following day we welcome the reading of The Hampton Years: A Staged Reading Presented by In Other Words and Black Art in America. "The Hampton Years" is a play written by nationally recognized playwright Jacqueline E. Lawton. Set in the 1940's, this is the true story of two famous African-American visual artists, John Biggers and Samella Lewis (then Sanders), as they were developing their talents as college students at the Hampton Institute (now University).
