Soul Works Comes to the Evanston Art Center:
Parts I and II
Evanston Art Center

The group show was curated by the Soulworks team of Fran Joy and Rose Cannon, and (due to pandemic restrictions) was shown solely in the windows of the Evanston Art Center.  An eclectic and exciting array of artwork was shown, which included Black American, Creole, African, Caribbean and Japanese artists. 

 

The smaller April 2020 show was a 'test pivot' to inside viewing of artwork after closure of the center due to pandemic restrictions. This larger, inside show in  June and July 2020 featured the following artists:  William Kwamena-Poh, Alpha Bruton, Baz Cumberbatch, Michel Delgado, David Geary, Myah Grinnell, Tadaaki Hatta, Fran Joy, Suanne Rayner, Debra Salter, and Jevoid Simmons.
