Gardens of the Mind: Echoes of the Feminine View
On View: October 6, 2017 - January 16, 2018

The African American Museum in Philadelphia presents Gardens of the Mind: Echoes of the Feminine View, an exhibition featuring five black women artists whose work explores spiritual cultivation and memory through their artistic practice. By using large scale installation, sculpture, painting, photography and printmaking, artists Barbara Bullock, Martha Jackson Jarvis, E.J. Montgomery, Joiri Minaya and Glynnis Reed examine links between history, memory, and the natural environment. The artists consider our relationship with nature and how the mind itself is a field, which is developed and nurtured to promote creative, spiritual and intellectual growth.

“Gardens of the Mind examines spirituality as it relates to memory and intellect with the idea of garden as metaphor. In this context, the works of five artists: Barbara Bullock, Martha Jackson Jarvis, Joiri Minaya, E. J. Montgomery and Glynnis Reed are presented. Evident in their art is a connectivity to the earth and living matter particular to their gaze as women.” -A. M. Weaver, Guest Curator
