Sisters in Spirit Exhibition celebrating Black History Month

Black History Month 2010 kicks off on October 1 with the opening of Sisters in Spirit, an exhibition of work by ten UK based female artists at the Original Gallery, situated on the first floor of Hornsey Library N8.

Commissioned by Haringey Council Arts & Culture department, Clem Richards of AG has assembled a group of artists, at different stages in their career, and examines the central themes of their artistic explorations; such as the unity of the family, relationships, the Black British experience, spirituality and identity.

The exhibition is an opportunity to see the everyday influences of Black British women, whether as a student, mother, business woman or employee and uncovers a primitiveness and traditional thread that binds their work together.

Sisters in Spirits showcase the works of Soheila Keyani, Paulette Robinson, Melanie "Shay" LaRocque, Michaela Lavine Lewin, Carol John, Munirah Olton, Dionne Ible, Jennifer Lewis, Carol Ann Edwards (Cezanne) and Mary Osinibi (Mary O) for this landmark exhibition at The Original Gallery and forms part of Haringey's 2010 Black History Month celebrations.

The artists will be available on rotation on certain days throughout the exhibition to guide visitors through the exhibits. If you are arranging a group visit and would like to be accompanied by one of the featured artists please contact AG on 020 8249 5807.
