Theda’s Exhibition Schedule

Expressive Creative Soul:  on display now through mid March

LOCATION: Bridge Art Gallery; 199 Broadway, Bayonne, NJ 07002, USA

Seven works from my Woman of Wonder collage series. A pure celebration of expression, music, femininity, and belief in oneself.  A confirmation of life repeated as a cannon of ‘I am who I am.’ We often travel to the corners of the planet looking for safe places to BE. When what is actually necessary is a declaration: “We are our own selves!” There is a place for all of our being; the sexy, the demure, the loud and the reticent. On our own terms of being in our own skin when and how we need to be: Ella, Eartha, Grace, Diahann, Billie, and Nina (YES! Nina) taught us and made way for the Cardi’s, Beyonce’s and even Nikki’s of this world. We all fit and there is plenty of room for us. When we make room for ourselves.–

48″x36″x2″ Mixed Media 2017 I LOVE Wonder Woman. I grew up watching the Linda Carter’s Wonder Woman and wanted to be a bad ass too. After seeing Patty Jenkins’s Wonder Woman in Theaters, I knew I had to pattern my next Super Selfie after Wonder Woman

Devine Femme @ MoCADA…….March 8 – April 12

It is amazing what can happen when, I get out of my own way and share my art work. I shared an art post on LinkedIn and invited to participate in Divine Femme at MoCADA museum in Brooklyn, NYC. Jut like that. Social graph = Serendipity…

Over the last 20 years The Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA) has used the visual and performing arts as a point of departure for exploring new artistic production across a variety of disciplines. Through exhibitions and programming, MoCADA incites dialogue on pressing social and political issues facing the African Diaspora and fosters a dynamic space for the creation and continuous evolution of culture. Some notables who have been featured at MoCADA include Terence Nance (Random Acts of Flyness), Wangechi Mutu, Jamel Shabazz, Ava DuVernay, Saul Williams and now me.

Neon Autotune, below was chosen as the main promotional image for the show that is representative of how far (or NOT) society has come in our understanding, recognition, and celebration of the femme form –mind, body, and soul– as a spiritual rite.
