Life changes as the seasons do

I have always loved that quote
“If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans.”
― Woody Allen
Often in life we think that we have it all planned out, but events occur in our life and we realize we don't. At these crossroads, we face truths we are not ready to accept , but it is then we must learn to trust in ourselves. I believe once we have done this we will then know, happiness.

Happy Summer!

Carrie Mae Weems INsight Conversation with Deborah Willis

I first learned about Carrie Mae Weems in 2010/11. Her use of the female figure in her work is very intriguing and mesmerizing as it presents controversial topics of the black female in the black community and american society.

 Let's just say I love her and her work, so I was extremely excited to hear she will be a featured artist at the LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph in Charlottesville, VA, but unfortunately I could not go, which now a days doesn't mean much thanks to the world wide web! So please enjoy this up close and personal talk between Carrie Mae Weems and Deborah Willis (the awesome Hank Willis Thomas' mother) as she discusses her life as an artist and her work.

LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph is a celebration of photography, created by photographers, for those who share a passion for the still image. The Festival features exhibits and on-stage appearances of our INsight artists, as well as exhibitions, outdoor projections, workshops and interviews over three days and nights. Billed as “3 days of peace, love and photography,”the Festival is designed to bring together the international photography community and create opportunities for attendees and artists to share images, ideas, and to be inspired.

Baltimore-Based Fashion Designer Carlous Palmer

This spring I had the opportunity to work with Baltimore-based fashion designer, Carlous Palmer, one of six nominees in the ready-to-wear category for the upcoming Fashion Awards MD being held June 15th at MICA's Brown Center.

In a recent article in Baltimore's Gay Life, Carlous explains his work is primarily in women’s ready to wear with his clientele consisting of, “women over 35 who are risk takers, a woman who naturally stands out and demands to be noticed."

With, the world as his palette, Carlous' designer pieces are often mistaken as haute couture by fashion laypersons. His designs are a mixture of textiles and shapes with a minimalist sensibility and unique fabrics.
