Antioch Art Series: Faces that are never seen…
Aug 18 @ 8:00 am – Sep 30 @ 8:00 pm
Antioch Art Series: Faces that are never seen... @ Antioch University Midwest | Yellow Springs | Ohio | United States

Faces We’ve Seen…

The paintings and other visual images of African-American Women in museums here and around the world have been largely ignored. African-American artists , both male and female, remain unknown to the general public. You have to make an effort to find the names of extraordinary African-American visual artists, Elizabeth Callett, Edmona Lewis, Lois Mailou Jones , Augusta Savage and many others.

Faces We Know…

I made an effort to paint subjects that are unknown, but represent an important segment of the population, African-American women, who live, work and (sometimes) died without making a headline in the news or an important invention. Yet their contribution was just as great, they are and continue
be part of the glue that holds our society together.

About the Artist

She started her educational journey at Indiana State College majoring in Commercial Art and Art Education, and then finished up her degree in Art Education at Central State University.

Mr. Peevy Forgets - Ardella RelifordAfter graduating, Reliford taught Art for a number of years in Dayton, Ohio public schools as well as area charter schools.

In addition to the more traditional art mediums, she likes to experiment on “uncommon surfaces” such as a pancake griddle or a clothes iron to create art.
