The Black Portrait @ Rush Arts Gallery 3/31-5/21/11

Felandus Thames

I had been meaning to tell you all about this show, The Black Portrait  currently on display @ Rush Arts Gallery in Chelsea, NYC till 5/21/11, that you must go and see. Natasha Logan and photographer and friend Hank Willis Thomas did an splendid job co-curating this show. it is very strong in content , theme and great imagery. You can easily move this show to the Studio Museum of Harlem or any museum for that matter. The work of Felandus Thames (shown above) was one of my very favorite gems to be discovered as part of this interesting take of black portraiture. I highly recommended.
