Visitors to the Oct. 1 opening of BONA FIDE, the SRAC Roster Artists' show that will run through Oct. 17 at ARTSPACE, were impressed by the quality of the offerings of local artists and the installation of the works. I especially liked that the portrait of each artist and their artist statement were exhibited with his/her body of work. The portraits are so well done, thanks to photographer, Byron Gates, Jr...I was awestruck by mine. Please go to YouTube for my video of the grand event: Bona Fide, Oct. 2009
Next Thursday, Oct. 8 at ARTSPACE, the poets and performers will be center stage at 7 pm: Shirley Campbell, Carlos Colon, Nan Dozier, Laura Flett and Poetic X. The $1000. Best of Show and Visual Exhibit awards will be presented later that evening.
