Artists Opening Reception
POP-UP Art Exhibit in Celebration of Black History Month
Featuring a sampling of works by Lorenzo Konia Crockett, aka Konia Kanoy
Join us on Saturday, February 25, 2017 from 1:00-3:00PM for the opening reception of our POP-UP Art Exhibit in Celebration of Black History Month!
Open and free to the Public with live Music by Jazz Guitarist Michael Belair. The exhibit is displayed in conjunction with the ongoing exhibit by Resident artists Peggy & Harold Francis.
Lorenzo Konia Crockett, aka Konia Kanoy, is a self-taught artist, raised in Oakland, CA during the 1960’s and 70’s. During this period, the SF Bay Area featured a movement that embraced self- expression, individuality and freedom of speech. Also featured during this period were forms of protest presented through music, visual arts and poetry. The Bay Area of this time was the template that encouraged Konia’s colorful approach toward art: a canvas heavy with textures, bold backgrounds and recycled materials (whenever possible).
Konia’s art reflects people, places and things caught in a strange living purgatory of blues, jazz and pre hip-hop/urban ideology. In touching and experiencing the raw textures featured in his art, the audience becomes more connected with his work and vision. He hopes his art and the expression of the social content and events portrayed through different mediums can, at best, put a pause on someone’s view of art.
On display now through March 2017
